Dunaway has seen significant progress since opening our doors in 1956. Poised for growth in the Central Texas region, Dunaway opened our Austin office in 2015 and our newest office in San Antonio shortly after in 2017, after acquiring MLA in 2016.
Over the past two decades, Dunaway staff has developed professional relationships with contractors and has overseen the construction of various projects for the City of San Antonio and other local agencies, such as the San Antonio River Authority (SARA). In recent years, Dunaway has provided services to SARA on the design and construction of the Escondido Creek Parkway and Westside Creeks Alazan trail. As the landscape architects on The Greenline Park at Brooks City Base, Dunaway helped to transform an abandoned golf course into a linear nature park, earning them a 2020 Merit Award by Texas ASLA. Currently, Dunaway’s service lines are joining forces to work with the World Heritage office to develop the World Heritage Center, in addition to the World Heritage wayfinding and signage along the routes to the Missions. Other notable local projects include Greenies Urban Farm for Bexar County, and the Berkley V. & Vincent M. Dawson Park adjacent to Hays Street Bridge.
Our growth in Central Texas doesn’t show signs of stopping, either. Dunaway’s local staff has recently expanded with the exciting addition of Abigail Bush, P.E., CFM, ENV SP to our San Antonio team. Abigail enhances our civil services to our local San Antonio office through her expertise in water resources, hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, floodplain management, and GIS. While at the San Antonio River Authority, Abigail led several projects providing stream restoration, park construction, low impact development, permitting and utility coordination, and Envision certification. Dunaway’s relationship with Abigail began when she was the project manager for Escondido Creek, helping Dunaway to create a destination park in Kenedy, Texas. Her experience in developing these types of projects along waterways, in addition to her understanding of the complicated processes of developing the San Pedro Creek project, will add additional technical knowledge to the current design team here at Dunaway.
Dunaway’s San Antonio staff has been providing professional services in San Antonio for over 20+ years and in the four years since the merging, we have been fortunate to be involved in high profile and smaller on-call projects throughout San Antonio. As Discipline Lead in Dunaway’s PLA group, Tara Lindberg, PLA, ASLA, LEED AP, notes “while working with the City of San Antonio on so many of these on-call projects, we have created so many new relationships with great people in the city, from smaller neighborhood associations to larger city organizations.” These on-call projects allow our staff to be collaborative, and as Tara explains, “it’s really exciting to be a part of a team that cares so much about these projects from beginning to end.”
We’re proud of work the work we’re doing in San Antonio and we look forward to continuing to make an impact in Central Texas.
