We are builders. Builders of relationships.
If it’s true that a project is reflective of the owner, how do you build that project without first understanding the owner and their desires? In our minds, you don’t.
At Ameris Construction, we desire to understand our clients’ wishes, desires, limitations, and goals. Once this is accomplished, we as a team set out to build both a long term relationship, as well as a successful project. If we understand you, we will understand how to most efficiently & successfully build your project.
Why Choose Us
The key to success, no matter what the objective, is to establish and implement a successful process to obtain a desired goal. In any construction project, there are many pre-construction and pre-planning activities that must take place. The project team must identify all of the project components then collectively as a team, work towards putting each into place as they become necessary in the process.

About the Founders
President / Co-Owner
Mobile: (602) 550-6638
As President and Owner of Ameris Construction, Chris has over seen and completed millions of dollars worth of commercial construction in his 25 year career.
Chris began his career in the National Kitchen and Bath Association in Hackettstown, New Jersey, where he became a specialist in high-end residential and commercial cabinetry and fixtures. Due to his success, he was relocated to San Jose, California, where he was responsible for overseeing all orders and inventory control for the division; that division represented the highest dollar volume in the western region.
In 1993 Chris went to work with Emjay Corporation, which was a family owned business in Phoenix Arizona. At Emjay, Chris was responsible for developing a company that grew to over 10 million in annual revenues. As this business grew, so did the demand for innovative, cost effective, and time efficient means to construct commercial properties. Chris began design building “pre-engineered” metal buildings with Emjay.
Ameris was developed from a necessity in 2005, to create a company that would be a local dealer for “American Building Company”. Ameris quickly became the preferred vendor in Phoenix and this success facilitated the growth of a successful multifaceted general contracting firm which has successfully completed all types of commercial construction projects, here in the Phoenix area. Ameris Construction grew to over 20 million dollars in revenue by 2007.
