Heyl & Patterson Donates Civic Arena Archival Materials to Heinz History
Heyl & Patterson Inc., a specialist engineering company headquartered in
Pittsburgh, has donated a collection of blueprints and photographs related
to the company’s role in the construction of the Civic Arena to the Senator
John Heinz History Center.
The donation was made in conjunction with Heyl & Patterson’s 125th
anniversary throughout the year, as the Arena undergoes demolition.
Heyl & Patterson’s collection of 42 drawings, plus the original contract
and photographs documents the conceptualization, design and manufacture of
the wheel assemblies, or trucks, that opened and closed the largest
retractable stainless steel dome roof in the world. Heyl & Patterson was
hired to construct the trucks by the Public Auditorium Authority of
Pittsburgh on May 15, 1958, and completed the work by February 1, 1959. The
trucks were then incorporated into the building’s design.
