La Casa De Amistad

South Bend, Indiana

Overview


Ancon Construction served as Architect of Record and General Contractor to renovate the two-story, 48,000 square foot facility. The existing building, a former charter school, had numerous programmatic spaces like classrooms, offices, and a café already in place. The new renovation included:

  • Additional offices.
  • Flex classrooms.
  • A new interior design palette.
  • The installation of interior windows to provide transparency and borrowed daylighting.

The community center now offers educational, cultural, and advocacy services in a flexible building. Numerous La Casa De Amistad volunteers were included in the demolition process and throughout the final finishes phase. 

“Working with Ancon Construction was a great experience. As an organization that serves the Latino community, they took the time to understand the needs for our building and our culture. Our architectural firm out of Detroit is very diverse, and the Ancon team partnered with them perfectly. They were involved early in the design phase, helped navigate a challenging renovation, and provided great value engineering options. Once construction began, they took the time to create a schedule that worked around our volunteers who painted areas while Ancon was finishing out others. Knowing that they have diversity within their organization and that everyone at Ancon is an Owner of the company was a strong consideration when selecting Ancon Construction for the El Sueno project. I would highly recommend them.”

Oaklawn

Goshen, Indiana

Overview


Through a capital campaign, Oaklawn and Ancon designed and built a wonderful facility within 83 days. It’s connected to the building and contains four main classrooms, a resource center, a computer lab, and several offices. We went from old, worn-out modular buildings to a very new, updated facility.

It was a phenomenal project, and one I feel blessed to have been part of. It was quite an undertaking on their part, and we’re so grateful for Ancon and everything that they did. They weren’t just a design/build firm, but a partner in the project.
