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.
