Bexar County Medical Society building named 2015 ASA Project of the Year


The Bexar County Medical Society's new building at 4334 N. Loop 1604 West in Shavano Park has been named the 2015 Project of the Year in the $2.5 million to $5 million category by the American Subcontractors Association - San Antonio Chapter. The award was presented during a banquet on March 10, 2016 at the Pearl Stable.


The building is situated on North Loop 1604 West between Lockhill Selma & Northwest Military. This two story, 20,000 s.f.  class "A" office building, built by R.C. Page Construction, features a mix of old Spanish style architecture with a modern twist. Special features include a grand staircase with mahogany woodwork, marble tile lobby flooring, mahogany bookcases and millwork throughout the space, and a board room that looks out onto the Texas Hill Country through a 2nd floor glass archway. Like the building that it was modeled after, the Alamo, the BCMS building will be an iconic piece of architecture on the North Loop for many years to come.


The Bexar County Medical Society, established in 1853, is the oldest county medical society in Texas, with a membership of approximately 4,700 physicians in all specialties. Its mission is to advocate for physicians and great patient care in both San Antonio and Bexar County.
