Tommy’s Express Car Wash – Ephrata, PA

It was a privilege for Ames Construction, Inc. to build the first Tommy’s Express Car Wash in Lancaster County, PA! This one is located in front of our headquarters in Ephrata, PA. The work included demolition of existing buildings and significant site work for water management. Much coordination was also needed to create new entrances/exits along this busy section of Route 322.

I’m glad that we chose Ames Construction as the general contractor for the construction of our new storage/parking lot. We encountered a number of challenges along the way as we were putting a large lot on a rather steep hillside, including some significant weather events, but together we worked through them. Chris Gonzalez, Ames’ Project Manager, and the team at Ames were hard-working and conscientious, as were the various trade partners that helped us accomplish the task. We’re more than satisfied with our new lot as it’s already helping us work more efficiently and safely. I highly recommend Ames as a commercial general contractor you can trust.
