Our Story + Values

More Than Reliable Earthwork

After 30 years of working for his father at Ames Construction, Larry Ames set off on his own in 1995 to start Bemas Construction. Starting out with limited resources pushed Larry to take chances, learn new skills, and grow Bemas into a company that delivers the highest quality work and service. Over the years, we have built a team of hard-working people that understand the unique challenges of earthwork, our commitment to quality, and the importance of taking pride in their work.

Bemas consistently delivers for our partners by committing to and living out our values every day. Through honest communication and integrity, we build meaningful projects and relationships that leave a lasting impact on the communities around us. We have built a reputation as one of the best earthmovers in town - and throughout the region, stretching across markets from residential mass excavation to transportation and stormwater control. Regardless of the project, we don’t think of Bemas as just another contractor, but as a partner for long term solutions.
  • Others First

    Our foundation is built on putting the Bemas team first, and we bring the same mindset to every project—offering our time, hard work and skill so others can build on the foundations we lay.
  • Whatever it Takes

    We do whatever it takes to fulfill our promises. When there’s work to be done, it’s all hands on deck.
  • D.I.R.T. - Do it Right Today

    All we have is today. D.I.R.T. reminds us that doing a job right will help us to protect each other and ourselves. We think long-term, minimize risks, and act deliberately in all things.
  • Persistence Builds Trust

    Relationships are built the same way the work is done—step by step, one day at a time. Our relationships are built on trust, and trust is built through persistence.
  • Create New Paths

    We make roads where there aren’t any. We approach each problem with creativity, and ask ourselves, “how can we do this better?”
  • Honesty in Action

    We’re honest in all things—it keeps things simple. From the straightforward way we communicate to the transparency we show our customers, we stay true.
