Promoting Growth While Regulating High Density Development

Presented by: Jeremy L. McDonald, P.E, Senior Engineer, City of San Antonio & Yungwei Tang, P.E, Senior Engineer, City of San Antonio

The City of San Antonio, a historically low density population city, is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. With an estimated increase of close to 1 million new citizens in a twenty year period, the city is developing new regulatory approaches to better serve its current and future citizens while promoting development and ensuring sound engineering practices. The Building Official and Fire Marshal’s office have implemented multiple new policies to help San Antonio become a developer friendly city while maintaining the safety, energy efficiency, and sustainability required per the adopted codes. This is demonstrated in three case studies highlighting fire safety challenges faced in projects located in downtown San Antonio. The regulatory approaches used by San Antonio, while unique to the challenges faced by its development needs, can be utilized in many building departments across the country.
