Owner/CEO: Dave Lamberson

Dave Lamberson grew up in Huntingdon County Pennsylvania and after a childhood spent building treehouses, forts and damns (to make swimming holes in the creek on his Grandfather’s Farm), building became deeply rooted in his nature, along with the idea of reuse and recycling.

Dave graduated from Penn State with a B.S. in Engineering Technology (1978) and started out in a management position with a national contractor where he was lucky to be mentored by highly skilled people on many large projects. By his mid-thirties, Dave held a variety of positions with a company with revenues of $12 million annually that quickly rose to $25 million. At this time, Dave was setting up projects and assigning the right project managers and superintendents, along with their crews, who would execute the work with skill, attention to detail, and in a timely manner.

In Dave’s most recent position, before acquiring Gettysburg Construction, he was a pre-construction manager for a construction management/general contracting firm whose revenues averaged $200 to $250 million annually. In his capacity at this firm, he was instrumental in estimating a wide range of building types, including commercial, military, wood, concrete, mixed use, and steel frame along with 20-50 acre site developments. Dave’s gained experience estimating services for a wide variety of product types. He is also familiar with working on numerous projects that are tasked with tight deadlines and fast-track schedules. This includes multiple Design Build and Design Assist Projects that provide a single source for Owners to achieve their end product at a pre-determined price point.

In October of 2013, Dave, a successful Mid-Atlantic construction executive with roots in Pennsylvania, decided to buy Gettysburg Construction Co. from Wayne Hill, President. Over the last 35 years, Dave has been involved with a broad variety of construction projects including projects for the Smithsonian, the National Zoo, the Army Corps of Engineers, over 100 jobs for the government, several mission critical projects, many healthcare projects, and more than 7,000 units of residential projects including market rate and affordable apartments, dorms, senior housing and assisted living. With his extensive experience Dave has successfully lead Gettysburg Construction Co. into a new, challenging and exciting growth phase.

Dave realized, after meeting Wayne Hill and understanding the history of Gettysburg Construction Co., that it was a company he wanted to be a part of since he felt he could build on its stable and successful foundation. He started his career with contractors who did a high percentage of work in-house which is also the case at Gettysburg Construction Co.

Dave has always found clear benefits to working closely with in-house crews and subcontractors to keep projects tight. Key benefits such as having more control over schedules and being more in touch with methods that work best for the owners. Dave brings a “can do” attitude to the company, working through obstacles and completing projects on time and within budget. And his notable project management, estimating skills and design build knowledge provides for the unparalleled execution of projects. With Dave’s expertise in working closely with owners and design-teams, Gettysburg Construction Co. will continue to be builders beyond measure.
