The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame Museum is a two-part structure consisting of a 6,000 SF Team Store and a 36,000 SF Museum, complete with exhibit space, retail area, interactive displays, and a three-story wall of baseballs, depicting the number of hits (4,192) by Pete Rose. The design of the team store incorporates many baseball themes from the Cincinnati Reds, including a replica of the World Series trophy. The Hall of Fame tells the story of the Cincinnati Reds from early years, starting at the Terrace Level, through to the Gallery, which encompasses the most accomplished Reds’ players. It includes a recreated façade of the Palace of Fans ballpark as it looked in 1902, a 100-seat amphitheater introducing the Reds’ history, a make-shift dugout where bronzed figures of former Reds managers reside, and a throw-a strike interactive exhibit engaging visitors to pitch from regulation distance, tracking their speed.
Megen served as the general contractor for the fit out of the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Team Store. Collaborating with the base building CM, our team facilitated the overall construction schedule of the team store in 2-1/2 months and the Museum in five months. Limited on-site material storage and a complex mechanical and lighting package installed in high bay ceilings were just a few of the challenges accomplished in the 2-½ month construction schedule. Meeting the fast-track schedule, the Hall of Fame Museum was unveiled in record time, bringing the Reds’ history alive for fans.
