Basney Honda

Mishawaka, Indiana


We performed an in-depth site plan and engineering analysis to confirm that the existing Basney site would accommodate the new Honda requirements and the City of Mishawaka’s new storm water drainage requirements.

  • Ancon’s architects suggested improvements and enhancements to the Honda Plans, managed design meetings and implemented drawing changes with each of the departments, while still meeting the Honda standard building requirements and project budget.

  • Ancon’s project manager suggested a construction phasing plan that would allow the dealership to remain open and productive while still maintaining the project schedule.

  • Negotiated favorable parking, curb cuts, and landscaping requirements with the City of Mishawaka.

  • Performed cost-benefit analysis during design meetings which compared the renovation and addition solution with the teardown and build new solution.

  • Evaluated green alternatives for the site, building, geothermal heating, and equipment.

  • Implemented an engineered sub-surface storm water retention system to allow maximum use of property for paved parking and vehicle display.

  • Provided new energy-saving site lighting fixtures.

  • Utilized precast concrete exterior solutions to speed up construction and reduce the project’s impact on the business.

  • Coordinated all fixtures, furniture, signage, image and graphics packages.
