Campus Town Student Housing - Ankeny, Iowa
Campus Town Student Housing is located in Ankeny, Iowa. It is a 96 unit apartment building with retail and common spaces on the main floor. This project was a Construction Management Project with the proposed cost of $12,500,000. During the construction design phase, the owner asked for a redesign to add an additional of 16 units within the same building footprint. The final project cost was $15,000,000. The project was finished in 2013 and is currently housing students for the Des Moines Area Community College.
Jay Berendzen and Jon Berendzen both were architectural designers for the project. Thomas C. Porter, retired, was the Architect of Record.
The main floor of the building provides the following amenities to their residences: half court gym, theater, weight facility, retail shops, and a café.
Osage R-III School District - Westphalia, Missouri
The Osage R-III School District contracted with Porter, Berendzen & Associates in 2009 to design an addition to the high school that would connect the educational building with the gymnasium. Prior to designing the addition, PBA performed a comprehensive existing building and campus facilities report. After reviewing the report with the district, our firm (along with the Facilities Committee) came up with a master plan of future projects and prioritized these items in order importance.
The existing campus was comprised of the original 3-story building along with many additions and remodels. Our firm was also tasked with defining and creating fire areas to make the campus safer for the students and staff. Our firm is currently working with the district on a remodel project in the existing building.

Municipal Center and Sally Port City - Holts Summit, Missouri
Porter, Berendzen & Associates worked directly with the City of Holts Summit and the Holts Summit Police Department to develop and design the remodel of the existing police department, the municipal center and the addition of the sally port for the police department.
The new City Municipal Center and the police department were housed in the same building and were having growing pains. The design scope was to move the Municipal Center to the existing building next to the existing police department. The police department was renovated and expanded into the existing building. Along with this much needed expansion, a Sally Port was designed as a connection between the two existing buildings.

The McKinney Building - Ashland, Missouri
The McKinney Building was designed as an addition and remodel of an existing grocery store in 2005. The building was originally designed for The Home Movie Depot, which transferred movie reels and VHS cassettes to DVD format. The company/property was owned and developed by Gary McKinney (McKinney Properties, LLC). After Mr. McKinney sold his business, he retained ownership of the property and leases the building to several entities. The property now houses the Local YMCA, The Callaway Bank (with a drive-through window), Mizzou Therapy Services and Biz Crossing.
Porter, Berendzen & Associates designed the original building in 2005 and was called upon again by Mr. McKinney in 2014 to work directly with the new businesses to design the appropriate space for their use.
Van-Far R-I School District
The Van-Far R-I School District selected PBA to design an early childhood addition for the elementary building. The existing elementary building was originally designed as a pod-style team-teaching system. The district determined that this teaching concept needed to be “re-vamped” in order to optimize the teaching environment. Our firm was tasked with re-designing and updating the existing building to better meet the current educational environment.
