Tommy’s Express Car Wash – Chambersburg, PA

Ames Construction was thrilled to build our first Tommy’s Express Car Wash in Chambersburg, PA! We successfully met the very specific schedule and system requirements from Tommy’s Corporate. Site work and MEP needed to be exceptionally precise, and we had to fit the removal of a significant amount of unforeseen rock into our schedule. The franchise owners were extremely pleased with the process and the results, as was Tommy’s Corporate. We are now preferred Tommy’s Contractor.

This project won an Excellence in Construction Award at the ABC Keystone Excellence in Construction Awards ’21! Shown below accepting the award are:
