Ben King, Ancon Construction architect, expressed excitement about the project, foreseeing a more collaborative and modern office space. He emphasized the creation of a campus fostering relationships between office and field staff.

The new corporate office, transforming 24,000 square feet of the former Furnitureland store acquired in 2022, will symbolize Ancon’s award-winning work and dedication to their Employee-Owners. Key design features include natural daylight, open and collaborative workspaces, various meeting areas, and a central hub featuring a café, training room, outdoor patio, and lawn space.
