An overview of the Ames Culture, History and the Markets it serves. For nearly 60 years, Ames Construction has delivered quality construction services. We started out as a small, family-run earthwork contractor that served a single community. Today, we’ve grown into a full-service, heavy civil and industrial general contractor that operates throughout North America.

Greensboro-Randolph Megasite - North Carolina

Ames Construction crews continue to make remarkable progress at the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite, where they are preparing a 1,000-acre pad for a manufacturing plant. Ames mobilized in January 2022 and ramped up until more than 400 team members were working on site along with more than 200 pieces of equipment. Ames implemented a vigorous on-site equipment operating training program for hundreds of new Ames employees hired locally. During this project, Ames will excavate and embank 25,000,000 cubic yards of material. Additional work scope includes permanent stormwater detention basins, utilities, erosion control measures, and the construction of a transportation network into and out of the site, including three grade-separated interchanges. Three building pads were turned over in 2022, with the remainder on track for turnover in 2023 and transportation improvements by fall of 2024. Learn more: Read More >

Sandpoint Junction Connector Project - Railroad Bridge - Idaho

A new rail bridge over Lake Pend Oreille in Sandpoint, Idaho, is on track to be put into service in November, with Ames Construction crews completing their work 14 months ahead of schedule! The new 4,769-foot rail bridge was constructed adjacent to an existing rail bridge, with the goal of reducing congestion and moving freight more efficiently. With Ames’ work on the new bridge complete, crews are proceeding with a bridge span replacement project on the original bridge. Ames crews have maintained an excellent safety and quality record during this challenging build process.
