Dunaway provided structural engineering services for the YETI Flagship Store located in downtown Austin, Texas. Our team partnered with Perkins + Will to revitalize the 1930’s, 3-story concrete frame building, turning its street-level space into a retail destination. Building improvements consist of removing an interior vehicle ramp linking two floors, infilling the remaining opening with a structural steel floor, architectural exterior stairs, custom storefronts with integrated canopies, and a new rooftop mechanical mezzanine.
The design team kept the store’s flagship status top-of-mind during construction, resulting in exposed steel structural improvements featuring an exterior deck, water tower feature, and hydraulic telescoping doors at large window openings.
