Valley Plaza

Mishawka, Indiana

Overview


The project, designed and built by Ancon Construction, aimed to refresh and rebrand the exterior façade of a strip office and retail building – ultimately attracting additional building tenants. The building is situated perpendicular to the Grape Road corridor; therefore, the project aims to make the building more noticeable and have a stronger presence. The outdated colonial architecture scheme was removed from the building, and new windows, storefront doors, architectural canopies, and backlit channel letter signage were incorporated. The most dramatic change was the brick staining from a dated red brick to a modern light taupe color.

La Casa De Amistad

La Casa De Amistad

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.”

In 2017, Ancon Construction designed and built a new addition for Bennington Marine in Elkhart, IN.

Included in the addition were a new R & D space, added production space, and employee breakroom. The addition was completed without losing one hour of production time. Coordination with the facility manager and timing of milestone phases of the project allowed the existing building to continue production with no shutdown throughout the entire construction phase.
