Day 1 Of Demo Underway!
In addition to new construction and renovation we also specialize in tenant improvement (TI) also known as tenant build out. Our demo crew is working on the first of over 50 new workout locations planned for Indiana and southern Michigan. The first location for our new fitness client takes us down to Logansport, IN where we are demoing an 8,000 sqft retail space and re-building to meet our client’s national construction and brand specs. The picture shown was taken after our first day of demo!
Working with national brands and ensuring compliance takes a construction firm with experience. We have worked with many Fortune 500 companies and their construction/brand standards over the years and excel at exceeding their requirements. Our success is based on having licensed in house architects, experienced project managers and dedicated construction crews. Combined with the way we communicate and constantly update our clients, national brands prefer to use ANCON Construction when their business or franchise comes into our region. Who is the new fitness chain you ask? You will have to follow us as we update the project right up until opening day!

Straight out of a Christmas classic movie there will be out door ice skating and reindeer to see this year at University Park Mall on Grape Road in Mishawaka, IN! ANCON Construction has enjoyed a long standing partnership with Simon Properties owned and managed University Park Mall on Grape Road in Mishawaka, IN.
This year they are kicking up the holiday spirit a notch by creating an outdoor ice skate rink which will be free for the public to enjoy. The skating rink will open on November 18th in the southeast corner of the mall’s parking lot, along Grape Road. Free to the public and skates are provided. A reindeer pen is also under construction as we were able to get permission from Santa to borrow some of his standby’s.
Within that same area will be a stage where a free concert by country music star Sara Evans will be held at on December 8th.
Grab your skates, bring some carrots for the Rudolph and make some family memories this holiday season! For more information see the Tribune story here.

Former Goshen Inn Site
The Emmert Group, headquartered in Brazil, IN, has chosen ANCON Construction to lead the construction of the former Goshen Inn & Conference Center which is currently being demoed.
The project consists of between 180-200 high end upscale apartments including clubhouse and planned greenspaces. Amenities include hardy board exterior with drive in garages below many of the units as well as high end interior finishes such as granite counter tops and tiled bathrooms. The Emmert Group has several other apartment complexes throughout the state of Indiana that they have built and managed.
When Brad Emmert asked why he chose ANCON Construction to partner with he replied, “We believe Ancon’s past experience with projects similar to ours, will help us succeed in bringing an upscale luxury apartment development to the City of Goshen.”
Ryan Kring, Vice President of Business Development, commented, “We are thrilled to partner with the Emmert Group on this project. We built a relationship based on experience and trust which gave Brad and his team the confidence knowing he has a solid partner in northern Indiana.” Kring also added, “We see a bright future for the Lincolnway corridor in Goshen with many opportunities for service, retail and upscale residential development similar to the planned Emmert Project.” Building layouts, concepts and naming are still in final design stage. Construction will begin in March 2017 with an estimated project value of 16-18 million dollars.

Aluminum Trailer Company (ATC) and Architect/General Contractor Ancon Construction are excited to announce a massive building project on Tomahawk Trail in Nappanee. The project consists of a 107,500 sqft new building on a new developed site. The building will feature a 15,000 sqft office with the remaining space dedicated to the assembly lines of “World Class, Precision Built” trailer fabrication and assembly.
Project Manager Doug VonGunten and Field Superintendent Lloyd Yoder will oversee the project which is estimated to be complete in July 2017. Ancon Designer Matthew VanSoest described the building’s architecture as “modern industrial” with an abundance of natural daylight and vistas looking over the natural landscape to the east. The interior design will feature burnished concrete floors, ceiling clouds, exposed structures, and the use of reclaimed wood pallets. The exterior will features a rhythm of sleek galvalume and darker grey metal panels with accents of wood and split face block.
ATC owner Steve Brenneman comments: “We are trying to do something unique with this new facility. We are thinking thru material flow and people flow first. We have spent quite a bit of time thinking thru not only how our systems will function within this facility today but also how they will function in the future as we continue to learn. With the help of the Ancon folks we will be able to create a flexible learning space that our employees will love.”
