Hillsdale Fabricators was the prime steel contractor responsible for the fabrication and erection of more than 15,500 tons of structural steel for this retractable roof stadium that is home to the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts. The stadium’s retractable roof was the first to part lengthwise and boasts an operable glass window wall, allowing for a spectacular view of downtown Indianapolis.  Two 752-foot-long superframes span parallel to the field sidelines, supporting the entire roof without compromising sight lines. The two 650-foot by 150-foot roof panels are supported atop five transverse box trusses that span between the two superframes. Hillsdale self-performed the steel erection in a joint venture with Derr Steel Erection Company.
