fd2s is creating a system of wayfinding, donor recognition, and interpretive signage for the Headwaters at the Comal project in New Braunfels, Texas. Situated on the banks of the Comal Springs and Blieders Creek, the Headwaters at the Comal will highlight the hydrological, environmental, and cultural history of the region.
Designed by Lake|Flato Architects, the project is the site of a former New Braunfels Utilities warehouse and fleet yard. After moving its operations from the location several years ago, NBU decided to undertake a significant environmental restoration of the 16-acre site and turn it into a living demonstration of sustainable practices for the local community and nation.
Our site-wide system of signage elements will direct visitors along a series of trails and pathways, recognize individual and corporate donors, and provide interpretive information about natural features and restoration efforts. One of these restoration initiatives is the removal of a portion of the eight-ton concrete cap that covered the site’s main spring, offering visitors a glimpse into the spring’s remarkably clear water.
