Fountainhead Business Park II, San Antonio, TX
Commercial Office Building - 89,100 sq. ft.
Constructed in 1999, Fountainhead Business Park II received LEED Silver certification in 2010, making it the first existing office building in San Antonio to do so. It is solely occupied by the Genzyme Corporation and owned by Shorecliffs Investments LLC.
The building’s re-commissioning ensured that the HVAC system was operating at its highest performance efficiency and included a lighting retrofit incorporating more efficient bulbs, installation of occupant sensors, purchasing of renewal energy certificates to offset the building’s carbon footprint, and implementing a high performance cleaning and purchasing program.
Fountainhead Business Park II was able to improve Indoor Environmental Quality with the combined dedication and group effort of the landlord, tenants, vendors including Testing Specialties, Inc. all under the direction of Ampajen Solutions. The result is a better quality, more energy efficient environment for the occupants that is also Energy Star certified.
