Goddard School Project Video Update.


June 28, 2019

Granger, IN-Ancon Construction, Premier Design-Build Construction Firm, is making huge progress on the first Goddard School location to come to our region.  Despite the record amount of rainfall, and daily rain days, our project has went from stick frames to eye popping color and timber elements in a hurry.

The red color was selected by the owner to make his building stand out along SR 23 just east of Heritage Square in Granger, IN.  The Owner worked with our in-house design team to accomplish the look and stay on budget.  The timbers give the location some added accents and provide a welcoming feeling as you approach the property.

“This is the first commercial project along this stretch of open land and is setting the tone for future development along this corridor.  This project has set a high standard in terms of design, materials and color selection” commented Ryan Kring, VP|Business Development.

The location has already received a large number of phone calls and is currently accepting applications for a variety of childcare roles.

South Bend Buffalo Wild Wing Lovers Rejoice!

June 21, 2019

South Bend, IN- Wing Lovers Rejoice!  Buffalo Wild Wings, located on Ireland Road on the south side of South Bend is getting a new look.  As part of the brand’s constant improvement to be the leader in design and customer experience, BW3’s will be updating both the exterior and interior of their south side location.  Ancon Construction, premiere Design-Build construction firm, is the proud builder of our regional BW3’s and the work will begin at the Ireland Road location in late June.

What can B-Dubs fans expect with the re-model?  A new exterior and interior look to match the franchise’s latest “Stadia” brand which will include all new interior seating arrangements, modifications to the bar and more TV’s designed to allow anyone seated to have a great view of the game.  Other updates include wall decor and other front of house updates.  Ancon recently completed a “Stadia” update for the Grape Road location and south side fans can expect to see a similar transformation starting soon.

Matthew VanSoest, Ancon Designer for the Project, commented, “The Ancon team is excited to be part of this image refresher for the south side Buffalo Wild Wings.  The updated imaging program will refresh both the interior and exterior branding – creating a positive and exciting experience for patrons.”

When asked about the re-brand concept Ryan Kring, Vice President of Business Development for Ancon Construction stated, “Most of the top brands in US re-brand every 7-8 years and Buffalo Wild Wings understands the value of giving their customers a fresh, yet familiar look at their locations.  It shows they know their customers and understand that their brand is constantly evolving.  The south side location in South Bend is a popular location and this refresh also shows Buffalo Wild Wings commitment to our community and to the south side.  We are the proud builders for Buffalo Wild Wings and look forward to being a part of keeping their brand fresh and exciting.”

TIMBER! Progress Continues on Potawatomi Zoo’s New Entrance

January 23, 2019-South Bend, IN.  Construction progress continues on Potawatomi Zoo’s new entrance.  The light winter has allowed Ancon Construction, to continue work.  This week, new timbers have arrived onsite and will begin to be installed.  The timbers columns have been put in place and additional timber beams will be installed on the columns to form the gift shop and lobby.  Incorporating the timber will provide a unique design feature to compliment other timber accents found throughout the zoo.

Timber Columns In Place

Eric Jensen, Architect for Ancon Construction, was excited to see the timbers arrive onsite, “Seeing the timber columns put in place really starts to make the building come to life. Utilizing glass for a majority of the exterior will allow visitors to see more of the timbers on both the outside and the inside.”
