Syska Hennessy Group, Inc. provided the MEP, architectural lighting design, and low-voltage infrastructure design for the new College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience. Located in Atlanta, the new Hall of Fame is devoted to celebrating the history and excitement of college football. The brand new attraction opened on Aug. 23, 2014 to great fanfare.
Syska Hennessy Group collaborated with a number of well-respected architecture, engineering and construction firms in the design and construction of this landmark project. Befitting the facility program, Syska also worked hand in hand with specialty exhibit and exhibition lighting designers, food service consultants, and LEED coordinators to achieve an energy and water efficient design and LEED BD+C Silver certification.
The Syska team collaborated with exhibit designers to develop the critical electrical, lighting, IT, and security infrastructure to support the highly interactive and media intensive nature of the Hall of Fame exhibits while allowing for maximum flexibility and future adaptability. Syska created a special grid design for the electrical and lighting systems that allows for the flexible location of exhibits and displays while facilitating full connectivity in a wide variety of spaces and arrangements.
The brand new College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience provides visitors with an immersive, interactive, and engaging experience using a blend of historic college football artifacts and state-of-the-art, interactive multimedia exhibits.
