Tommy’s Express San Antonio, a LEED Certified Car Wash!

From building materials to interior air quality, low energy use, and water efficiency LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified buildings are some of the most environmentally conscious establishments on the planet. Each has been designed to leave a particularly low impact on the environment during its daily operation while conserving our natural resources and promoting a healthier interior and exterior environment for guests and team members.

Tommy’s Express Car Wash is proud to feature our own LEED-certified express car wash facility, which opened earlier this year in San Antonio Texas and is the first LEED certified car wash in the state.

Of particular note, the car wash uses a water reclamation system with Rotating Bed Biofilm Reactor (RBBR) technology to dramatically reduce its overall water consumption without sacrificing performance or wash quality. In fact, the technology allows the wash to reclaim up to 90% of the water used to wash each car—up to 40% more than industry standard.

This system pairs well with Tommy’s Express’s already low water consumption, due to our highly efficient and targeted wash equipment, and our commitment to global clean water access and partnership with the nonprofit organization Water Mission.

Other factors that contributed to the LEED certification include natural lighting and overall improved energy efficiency compared to similar car wash designs.

If you live in the San Antonio region we invite you to visit Tommy’s Express San Antonio at 23202 US HWY 281 N and try out our remarkably modern, fast, green car wash yourself! We think you’ll like what you find.
