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.

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.
