Company Description
ECI is a multi-generational business, founded in 1974 by John Eichberg. Our team is guided by Mr. Eichberg's code of personal ethics and inspired by his dedication to ECI and his clients and employees. CEO John Doyle joined in 1979 and President Jay Eichberg came aboard full time in 1989. So the three principals have a combined tenure of 100 years at Eichberg Construction.

Organizational Structure

ECI has a multiple-layered structure, allowing us to form teams, develop group cohesion and depth, maintain bench strength, develop talent, and provide flexibility in staffing projects at different levels at various stages in the project. In the office, we have project executives, project managers, assistant project managers. In the field, we have site superintendents and assistant site superintendents.

Project Management System

ECI uses Procore, a collaborative web-based project management software which is the project portal. This amazing tool allows us to keep information flowing continuously among all stakeholders, allows the Owner to view all aspects of the project every day, and us to document and archive all relevant project data in one place. We also use many other state of the art tools, including PlanGrid (for drawing management), PlanSwift (for take-offs), and Primavera Suretrack and Phoenix (for CPM Scheduling). We welcome the opportunity to show you how Procore works. We think you will be immediately drawn to it.

ECI Quality Control Strategy

We believe that the best way to achieve high quality work is to select the best subcontractors, to give them fair contracts, to provide an environment where they can succeed and appropriate time to do their work. We scrutinize shop drawings and submittals to make sure that the contractors understand the drawings and specs, we update and distribute the schedule regularly so they understand our expectations and staff up appropriately, and we help them in the field when they need it. We do not accept low-quality work with the hope that it passes un-noticed. Punch list preparation starts as soon as we break ground. We hope these beliefs are those you can espouse, and methods and strategies you want to learn and commit to.

Why Work Here?
A place where you can make an impact and move through the ranks. A place you can call home.

ECI is a multi-generational business, founded in 1974 by John Eichberg. Our team is guided by Mr. Eichberg’s code of personal ethics and inspired by his dedication to ECI and his clients and employees. CEO John Doyle joined in 1979 and President Jay Eichberg came aboard full time in 1989. Project Executives Kevin Connelly and Dan Kolakoski joined in 2003 and 2004. Executive Coordinator Debbie Rodgers joined in 2007 and helps keep ECI running smoothly. Following Kevin’s retirement in 2018 and Mr. Eichberg’s passing in 2019, John, Dan, Jay and Debbie have teamed to guide an experienced dedicated group of project managers, assistant project managers and site superintendents. ECI has a deep, varied portfolio of new construction and building renovations of all project types. These include condominium and apartment buildings (ranging in size from 4 units to 200 units), schools, churches, synagogues, community centers, automotive dealerships, restaurants and retail stores, commercial buildings, and office interiors. We have completed millions of square feet of commercial construction and more than 6,000 residential homes. We’ve operated by the same principals and have been headquartered in Rockville, MD since our inception. ECI’s strategy has remained consistent across the decades: work tirelessly to exceed our clients’ expectations and deliver quality work. We build efficiently and collaboratively with the owner and the design team, always with our focus on quality. We are honest and diligent; our reputation is everything. Proof of that is demonstrated in one simple fact: During the first 47 years of our firm’s existence, completing more than 2,200 construction projects, we have never been involved in litigation with a client, and only once had to use arbitration to collect a debt. When we fall short, we take responsibility and make things right. In the construction industry, it’s rare that relationships survive through consecutive projects. There are many pitfalls that can tangle even the friendliest owner/builder/architect teams in bitter dispute. We have stayed out of trouble by doing excellent work and communicating freely with our clients to avoid dispute. We put ourselves in their shoes and treat owners and architects like we want to be treated.
