BIG RED DOG is working with Manchester Texas Financial Group on the Canopy Walk project, which will connect the new Fairmont Austin hotel with the Austin Convention Center. When complete, it will span across Red River Street and Waller Creek.

As the civil engineer on the project, BIG RED DOG performed preliminary engineering & concept design, obtained the site development permit, floodplain coordination, and construction phase services.

As you can see from these photos, crews have made great progress constructing this unique and logistically challenging project since our last update. The design team includes Thomas Phifer and Partners, dwg. Landscape Architects, and Thornton Tomasetti. Hunt Construction (AECOM) is the general contractor.

The Canopy Walk project is anticipated to be completed later this year. Keep checking the BIG RED Blog and follow us on social media for updates on this and other exciting projects!
