- Bakersfield, CA
BRR has partnered with the Grocery Outlet brand on many projects across the country since 2016. This specific project, located in Bakersfield, CA, presented a few challenges due to the existing structure in a shopping center and tight footprint at the front exterior. This store design was adapted from the prototype and the elevation was re-designed to focus on Grocery Outlet.
In order to add the signage canopy needed at the front entrance, the team needed to calculate precise clearances and design around the existing structure to maintain accessibility. It was the goal of Grocery Outlet to have a larger and taller signage facade than the adjacent tenants while still fitting within the context of the site. The team used the prototypical elevations as a basis of design and used existing facade structural columns and framing for the new canopy to minimize construction time and reduce cost.
