Fort Sam Houston IMCOM Headquarters / San Antonio, TX
Can a headquarters be built with a Spanish Colonial Revival style?
The new three-story IMCOM Headquarters supports the IMCOM Command Group and houses just over 800 IMCOM, G-4, and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) personnel. This project was designed to meet the Department of Defense Anti-Terrorism/ Force Protection (AT/FP) specifications. The project also achieved LEED Silver certification and was completed several weeks ahead of schedule. With its light stucco walls and terra cotta tile roofs, the IMCOM Headquarters reflects the mission/Spanish colonial revival style of Fort Sam Houston. The building was constructed on a ribbed-mat slab foundation, with CMU walls, stucco finish, and clay tile mansard roof. It is distinguished by the keystone architectural detailing and wrought iron ornamental work on the north and south side visitor entrances. It provides open and compartmentalized office spaces, secure data networks, conference rooms, libraries, record storage, and departmental reception areas. Mullioned windows bring natural light into the open office areas along the perimeter of each floor and rooftop clerestories provide natural light in light corridors on the third floor.
