The NASCAR Hall of Fame Complex is a multi level structure built for the city of Charlotte. The building shares a city block with the NASCAR tower which was already under construction when the Hall of Fame project began which made logistics and staging a true challenge. The Hall of Fame Complex is made up of two distinct areas, the Hall of Fame and the Ballroom. The Hall of Fame steel framing was unique in the fact that many of the interior columns were intentionally skewed out plumb and were located on radial grid lines. The Ballroom portion of the building is one large room that is one acre under roof with no visible columns.
