Today Ancon Construction’s president, Doug VonGunten and Architect, Ben King, shared the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Indiana/Kentucky, Excellence in Construction (EIC) Award with Kryder & Harr Veterinary Clinic owners Jessica Murphy and Dr. Stephanie Harr. Kryder & Harr Veterinary Clinic, located at 13471 SR 23 in Granger, Indiana, is a deeply rooted business in Northern Indiana that has been providing veterinary services to our region for decades.

“Ancon’s boots were on the ground and their hearts were in this project. They made our hospital a home with lots of collaboration and time, we collectively built an incredible veterinary hospital to last the next 40 years,” said Jessica Murphy.

Doug VonGunten shared, “It was a pleasure to work alongside Jessica and her team. This project showcases Ancon’s strong design-build work and commitment to excellence. I could not be prouder of our team for their talent and hard work. This recognition reinforces the great things our employee-owners are doing. I am really excited about the future and what our team can accomplish.”

Associated Builders and Contractors of Indiana/Kentucky (ABC) seek to recognize the outstanding projects built by its members every year with their Excellence in Construction Awards. Such recognition builds greater awareness in local communities of the quality of work produced by Merit Shop contractors and their employees.

Furthermore, the Excellence in Construction competition represents the quality of the companies in the association. ABC’s Award of Excellence in Construction honors the skill and creativity of the entire team – contractor, owner, architect, and engineer – responsible for an outstanding project. The award recipients excel in innovation, quality, communication, and safety.
