Our “groundbreaking” at the new Tommy’s Express Car Wash in Chambersburg, PA happened a little bit late, but we still got some great coverage (link below) and a great photo including (L-R) Glenn Nolt – Ames Project Superintendent, John Gay – Chambersburg Location Manager, and Dewey Yoder – Ames Project Manager
I was pleased to work with Ames Construction for the design/build renovation project at Ephrata Church of the Brethren. I have worked with Ames for many years and we’ve had a great relationship. This project was no exception. Together we were able to come up with an outstanding design and plan to accomplish ECOB’s goals. I will also say that the team at ECOB was great to work with as well. This project was an exceptional collaboration between architect, owner, and general contractor. I would recommend Ames to anyone looking for a professional, conscientious commercial general contractor.
