Building Projects for the Common Good
For more than six decades, Ames Construction has been improving the quality of life for the people who live and work in the diverse markets we serve. We are working to support the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals and coming together as One Ames to create sustainable futures for people, the environment, and our communities.
Since Ames’ inception, sustainability has been in our company DNA. — Jerry Ouimet
We invest in our people.
People are our greatest asset. We value our team members’ unique backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, and come together as a collective group to create positive change in our company and communities.
Our family-first culture remains focused on the safety, health and well-being of our people. Our programs and educational initiatives are designed to expand opportunities for individual career growth and prepare the next generation of leaders to thrive in a global marketplace as we continue to work with our project partners to cultivate an inclusive, cohesive team with shared goals.
We cultivate environmental sustainability.
From the industries we serve to the processes and procedures we use to serve them, we remain mindful of our impact on the environment. Our history of environmental stewardship began with soil conservation projects at the company’s inception in 1962 and led to adopting the tagline: “Working in Harmony with Nature” as a declaration and reminder of our commitment to environmental issues.
Driven by client project goals, we devise and integrate innovative ways to conserve natural resources, combat pollution, eliminate waste and protect biodiversity, with the ultimate goal of protecting and sustaining our environment for future generations.
We embrace civic responsibility.
In every Ames project location, we strive to leave the community better than when we arrive. We hire local workers and vendors, lend a hand with volunteerism, perform in-kind work where it’s needed, and provide monetary support to various organizations and charities.
Our “giving back” mindset includes educational support to advance and promote awareness of expanding opportunities within our industry and attract the next generation of talented professionals and skilled craftspeople. By actively participating in the public life of a community, we affirm our commitment to supporting and enhancing efforts for the common good.
