San Antonio Studio Honored for Historical Restoration

LPA’s San Antonio office was recognized with an Excellence in Construction Award for historical restoration by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC)’s South Texas chapter for bringing new life to a long-vacant retail building.

Located in San Antonio’s up-and-coming Southtown District, the LEED Platinum-certified office includes indoor and outdoor areas infused with energy-efficient elements. Landscaped courtyards include bio-retention features to filter stormwater and reduce pollutants before water is discharged into the San Antonio River; photovoltaic solar panels produce 50 percent of the energy needed to run the office; and natural daylight from existing high-volume windows and automatic daylight harvesting sensors manage the consumption of energy from lighting.
