On a wooded hill overlooking the north end of Oklahoma City sits one of the foremost repositories of this country's Western heritage, the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. Contained within its walls are works by such artists as Russell, Remington and Bierstadt, plus memorabilia and artifacts illustrating the role of the western cowboy in the development of the history of the U.S. The popularity of the Hall of Fame has grown since its opening in 1965. To respond to this, the owner decided to add 140,000 sq ft of gallery, multifunction and administration space to its existing 80,000 sq ft. In 1991, the Denver architectural firm, CW Fentress JH Bradburn and Associates, P.C., won the contract through a national design competition. Our firm, Richard Weingardt Consultants, Inc., Denver, was selected as project structural and civil engineers.
