The Development and Business Services Center, or “One Stop” Center, is a 76,000 sf two-story civic/office building designed to support the development services needs of the City of San Antonio.

Electrical systems were designed to reflect the state of the industry and include a 1.7 kW demonstration grid-tied Photovoltaic system, Daylight sensing/dimming systems in selected areas, low loss transformers, occupancy sensors and premium efficiency electrical distribution. Special lighting systems include linear indirect fixturing, interior feature floodlighting, and exterior façade lighting.
