Future 50 Project

Assuring an Iconic Building is Ready for the Next 50 Years

Welty Building Company partnered with Fred Oliveri Construction to complete the largest expansion and renovation project in the Hall of Fame’s 50-year history. Up against a tight timeline, Welty ensured that the two-year, $27 million project was completed in time for the Hall’s 50th Anniversary celebration during the summer of 2013. Welty managed the intricacies of having all exhibits remain open to the public during the renovation, including completely shutting down construction during the 2012 enshrinement ceremonies. Work included a newly designed entrance and orientation area, expansion of the retail store, office relocation, an indoor event space addition, and upgrades to the HVAC and environmental control systems.

Welty did a phenomenal job in scheduling the work and scheduling the locations of the work so that it worked around our ongoing business operations. We never shut down. We didn’t shut down one single day during the course of this two year construction.
