My compliments to Todd Smith of the ELA Group in State College for an excellent job in handling our project at 728 Evergreen Road. Your attention to our project has been a great help from developing a concept plan to obtaining approvals of the projects with Design Review Board, the Planning Commission, Borough Zoning and Borough Council. I highly recommend the ELA Group to handle any project, no matter what the size.”

Over the last few years, we at Ames Construction, Inc., have had the pleasure of working with ELA Group, Inc. as both client and team member. As a client, I have found them to be honest, trusting, and patient. This made for a smooth and pleasant working relationship, and resulted in a good job for all. As a team member, working with an outside client, I have found them to be an outstanding firm of professionals from the bottom to the top of their organization. They have proven to be thorough, timely and budget conscious, which is important in today’s marketplace. Like ELA, Lancaster County is blessed with many good engineering firms, but ELA adds a personal touch that always begins with a warm greeting when you call and continues with all involved with a project truly being concerned about the needs of the client and the team. Keep up the good work!”

The ELA Group staff provided valuable expertise during the planning and construction phases for our recreation complex and facilities. I enjoyed working with the ELA staff as our project progressed through its various stages. Working with the ELA staff as we discussed ideas, made our plans for the project and moved through the construction phase was a positive experience. The staff responded to my ideas, provided the necessary feedback to those ideas, both positive and negative, as the situation warranted, so that the project could become a reality. Their contributions greatly determined the success of the project.”

Over the past eight years we have developed a very good relationship with the officers and staff of ELA Group, Inc. and recommend them highly in all engineering projects.
The Borough has had several large revitalization projects during this time, as well as development pressures resulting in traffic surveys and calming issues, storm water, land development and even bridge replacement. We are currently working on a $1,100,000 Main Street Revitalization Project that is moving smoothly. They keep the Borough’s best interests in mind and are sensitive to our community needs and desires.”

ELA, the site contractor, and Fieldturf did a quality job on the design and installation of the synthetic turf surface at the Garnet Valley High School Stadium. The job went smooth and the results are phenomenal! I would endorse any of the design and construction team for a job well done, meeting a demanding schedule, and getting our football team on the field in time to win their first home game of the season.”
