Project Portfolio

The Shops at La Cantera

  • Project Location: San Antonio, TX
  • Owner/Client: La Cantera Limited Partnership
  • Project Description:

The Shops at La Cantera is a new outdoor shopping center in San Antonio that houses more than 150 shops and restaurants. As the basis of design, DXS provided Daikin VRV/VRF heat pumps with indoor cassette units and ductless fan to condition the corridors of the center.


Retail & Office Key Considerations

Architects and engineers working in the retail and professional office building markets consistently face the same scenario:  the ever-changing need to reconfigure tenant space.  As businesses change, their space requirements can fluctuate wildly.  They move, they expand, they downsize.  And because they do, DXS works alongside architects, engineers and owners to design VRF systems that can be configured – and reconfigured – to meet on-going and changing tenant HVAC requirements.

Key Considerations

  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Designed as a modular system to any specifications required by the project
  • System is easily reconfigured after installation
  • Tight temperature controls of multiple zones for multiple tenants
  • Experienced staff and products that have the ability to interface with a wide variety of control systems
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment locally stocked
