Our History

For over 30 years, AnCor has designed and built affordable, attractive structures… All while forging equally durable and dependable relationships with our partners and clients. Since the mid-80’s, we’ve dedicated ourselves to every project with the same passion and commitment we’d use building our own homes. Since then, we’ve grown from dependable local contractors to national industry leaders in design/build construction.

Our founders, Tom and Joe Anthony, believe in creating true, strategic partnerships. The shared vision of doing things right has built our brand. It’s the driving force behind our quality workmanship, painstaking attention to detail, aggressive scheduling, and fair pricing.

As our company grew, so did the needs of our clients. We evolved into a full-service firm, by launching our in-house design department in the late 90’s. This made AnCor better equipped to help our clients conceive ideas and then execute every detail, exceeding expectations. Real design, real building, real results.

Decades of successful relationships have given us a deep knowledge and experience to draw from, and prepared us to identify new trends and technology, making us ideal partners for future projects. Today, AnCor’s goal is to help you realize the full potential of your imagination.

AnCor strives to be a leader in the design-build industry, known for our integrity, quality and commitment.

How We Work

Conceive. Construct. Connect. Our tagline isn’t just words. We live and breathe these concepts every day.

Conceive – we work intimately with our partners in the ideation and design phase, helping turn a vision into a thought-out, detailed plan.

Construct – building is our life blood. We build more than structures. We build relationships.

Connect – Our work helps our clients make real, tangible connections with their customers. We count restaurants, retail centers, office buildings and fitness centers among the many projects we take on. And we take that responsibility seriously.

Core Values

Team Work
Internally and externally, we are committed to building a rewarding environment where our partners and team members can prosper as highly trained, motivated and recognized professionals.

We work to deliver unparalleled service to our clients through our commitment to service.

Being a pillar in the local communities where we work is as important to AnCor as our desire to being a pillar in the design/build community.
