The Command Post
Heritage Landscapes is one of the fastest-growing commercial landscape companies in the state of Texas. With multiple offices in the San Antonio area, Heritage needed to consolidate into one headquarters location. Additionally, the client desired an aesthetically pleasing building that accommodates their current and future needs while incorporating efficient budget-conscious building systems.
After conducting a needs assessment and programming exercise, the team determined that Heritage needed an approximately 4,900-square-foot building. The program for the building includes the following: Lobby, Office Space, Irrigation Bullpen, Sales Reps Bullpen, Maintenance Bullpen, Breakroom, Large Conference Room, Restrooms, Storage, and space for future growth.
The site for the Headquarters Building is located on 3 acres in Comal County. About 75% of the site exists within a floodway. The design team took special care to ensure the building and parking were placed cost-effectively outside the floodway. Due to site constraints and economic planning, the design reduced the building footprint and utilized a second-level mezzanine to maximize the usable square footage.
To provide a cost-efficient building, we utilized a pre-engineered metal building system for the shell and designed the interior build-out as an independent wood-frame structure. In addition, the Contractor, Foster Construction Services, was brought in during the schematic design phase of this project to serve in an advisory role to the owner and provide an early detailed cost estimation. This project is currently bidding and is slated to start construction at the end of February 2022.
