Ancon Construction Shares Construction Award with Shady Creek Winery

Ancon Construction’s architectural team and project manager met with the owners of Shady Creek Winery last week to share the Associated Builders and Contractors of Indiana/Kentucky (ABC) Excellence in Construction Award. The award recognizes the winery’s recently completed renovation, building expansion, and site development projects.

“With such a unique construction project, we needed the right partner to bring our vision to life. Ancon’s entire team provided clear direction, attention to detail, and dedication to our project. Together, we established a gorgeous wine destination in the heart of Northwest Indiana to share with wine lovers for years to come,” said JT Schwartz, President of Shady Creek Winery.

Matt VanSoest shared, “The Shady Creek Winery project was a thrilling and rewarding project for the Ancon team. The multi-year endeavor achieved a highly detailed building, intricate interiors, and strong connections to the immediate landscape. Working with the Owner and producing a project which focuses so strongly on guest user experience was a great opportunity to further our understanding of how places and spaces impact people.”
