Corpus Christi worked with McKinstry to implement a number of improvements to city buildings as a part of the Corpus Christi Energy Efficiency Conservation Project.

The most recent phase of the project updated 76 city buildings, including the fire, gas and water departments; police stations; the marina; senior and parks and recreation centers; the art museum; American Bank Center; city hall; the health department; and city court buildings. McKinstry worked with city leaders to optimize equipment, replace and retrofit outdated lighting, install low-flow plumbing fixtures and implement controls for more automated and efficient energy use.
