Ephrata Church of the Brethren – Ephrata, PA

This project involved a major renovation of the interior of the church including the sanctuary, a new welcome center, kitchen and classroom renovations. Ames also built an addition for a new vestibule and portico and enclosed the existing portico to create a new conference room.

Ames performed this work on a cost+ basis. We were able to help the church realize significant savings over the original estimate which allowed them to use the extra funds to refurbish their parking area.

Our project wasn’t “managed”  by the dedicated staff at Ames, it was nurtured. Every aspect was discussed with us openly and, whether tragedy or triumph, handled with responsibility and a level of stewardship that told us how much they cared about the outcome
