The new Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Based Outpatient Clinic in San Antonio, Texas, offers patients, medical professionals, staff and visitors an environment promoting health, life-safety and well-being. Representing these principles, Hoefer Wysocki designed the building’s main entry with sweeping curved exterior as a “healing embrace.”
Bringing the concepts to reality, the three-story, 226,148-square-foot facility features Tubelite‘s high-performance ForceFront® Blast Curtainwall, Storefront and Entrances on the exterior. Tubelite’s interior framing systems also were provided for the security entrance vestibule and breakroom. All the aluminum was finished by Linetec in “Silversmith” color using 70% PVDF resin-based architectural coating.
The VA’s finished aluminum framing and glazing systems were installed by San Antonio-based glazing contractor Bulverde Glass, in collaboration with Jacobsen Construction. Working closely with Bulverde, Sage Architectural Products consulted with the design and construction team to meet the project’s modern aesthetic goals and numerous performance requirements.
