South Bend, IN- Ancon Construction, premier design build construction firm, held a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open their new downtown South Bend office.  Located inside the newly renovated mixed use building The LaSalle the office has premiere corner street level visibility set inside the historic LaSalle building.  Although the office is inside a historic building the design is ultra modern and minimalistic.  Matt VanSoest, graduate architect, researched office spaces like Tesla and Google and used that for design inspiration.  Local artists have donated some sculptures and historic photos of downtown South Bend have placed them throughout the office.

Why downtown South Bend?  For over 40 years Ancon Construction has served South Bend, Mishawaka and the entire St. Joseph County region.  Nearly everyday there is an Ancon Construction employee in the region working on projects.  “We have a known presence and excellent reputation in this region….now we have the physical location to match.  The revitalization of the downtown corridor is exciting.  Many of the projects that started the downtown revitalization Ancon Construction were a part of, so South Bend seemed like the natural choice when we looked at potential locations.” noted Ryan Kring, Vice President of Business Development.  

Kring went on to say, “This space is a communal area which our employees can use to give our clients a comfortable place to meet and have a great experience.  Having this space allows our customers a closer place to meet and plan out our projects together.  We use a team approach to project design and delivery in which our clients are involved heavily throughout the entire process.  The office is designed to be a living showroom of various types of materials so our clients can see them in actual space.  Periodically we will change out the furniture and flooring to highlight the latest available designs and materials.”

Ancon Construction is not the only tenant in the building, recently The Hideaway opened.  The Hideaway is a 1920’s speakeasy steampunk whiskey bar that was designed and built by Ancon Construction.  South Blend, a new coffee house, is also under construction and will be opening its doors in the next few months.

We have been building this region for over 40 years and we look forward to the next 40.
