We are proud to be able to build a new corporate home for a company that has done so much to help establish San Antonio’s reputation as a leader in medical treatment and health care innovation.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Koontz McCombs Construction, Ltd. along with RVK Architects has entered into a design-build agreement for Kinetic Concepts, Inc.’s new global headquarters. Kinetic Concepts, Inc. (KCI) the world leader in wound care and therapeutic systems, commemorated the groundbreaking on the new building as part of its 35th anniversary celebration.
The new three-story, 100,000 square foot building will be on Interstate Highway 10 just south of Hausman Road, a few miles north of KCI’s current headquarters building at IH-10 and Vantage Drive. The new offices will cover more than eight acres.
“We are proud to be able to build a new corporate home for a company that has done so much to help establish San Antonio’s reputation as a leader in medical treatment and health care innovation,” said Koontz McCombs Construction President Jerry Turman. “Work is already under way on the site and we plan to have it ready for KCI to move in by the summer of 2012.”
The design of the building will incorporate Building Information Modeling (BIM), a three-dimensional design tactic that allows all project participants the opportunity to collaborate on the design and scheduling of the building’s construction. This process streamlines construction and ensures the client receives the best value possible on the project.
Additionally, the materials and design of the building are intended to be highly energy efficient. The goal is to have the new facility certified under the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). This certification is given to structures that meet or exceed the USGBC’s standards in energy efficiency and environmental design.
