Historic renovation of 7+ existing mill buildings into 113 modern market and affordable apartments.

With buildings dating back to the 19th century, Ames Shovel Works is one of the more complex projects Keith Construction has undertaken. Each structure differed in size and building materials, making construction challenging and accurate scheduling imperative. Roofs varied from slate to asphalt shingle and standing seam metal, and the framing, from wood timber to structural steel. The smallest building has 3 units and the largest, 42. After nearly 2 years, 113 unique units ranging from 600 SF to 2647 SF were constructed. Consisting of townhomes, lofts and flats, Ames Shovel offers a wide array of residential options for the suburban town of Easton.
