At the CPS Energy Headquarters, Sundt completed a full exterior re-skin and build-to-suit project. The two office towers, 11 and 14 stories high, along with a connector building total 490,000 square feet. The project is located on a 5.3-acre site along a high-traffic area of the San Antonio River Walk. Sundt also built a new parking garage for more than 1,200 vehicles. The completely renovated, energy-efficient headquarters helped the client save on operating, maintenance, and commuting costs as they relocated more than 3,100 employees from various facilities in the city.
As the face of CPS Energy amid San Antonio’s skyline, the office’s new look matches the company’s evolution into the future. Inside, the interior was completely gutted for renovations, including mechanical and electrical systems. Precise cosmetic and demo work involved several safety measures, including a giant, cocoon-like containment scaffolding system to mitigate debris.
Altogether, Sundt’s OSHA rate, internal mobile safety app and all the intangibles of our larger safety culture gave CPS confidence in entrusting us with this high-profile project. CPS Energy, formerly known as City Public Service, is San Antonio’s municipally-owned utility provider. The company prides itself on safety and holds its partners to the same standards.
