A corporate office building bowling alley amenity in the heart of downtown Chicago. Fusion Bowling salvaged and hand-restored the 1950s Brunswick Crown Imperial masking units, and completely rebuilt, re-chromed, re-powder coated, and painted the 1960s Brunswick Gold Crown ball return hood and in-line rack.
"What i liked about working with Fusion Bowling was the constant updates from them on the deliveries and the install of the bowling alley itself. Unfortunately, our project was delayed, but Ryan was able to hold all of the items for us and work with our new revised schedule. When we had questions regarding the power requirements and the install of the platform to meet the lanes, Fusion sent out the installer to meet with us on the site and confirm we were doing everything correct for the install of the bowling alley. When it was time to complete the project, Fusion came out and assembled the pinsetter covers and installed the monitors. They realized that the manufacturers did not send out a crucial part for the CPU/Network, and Matt drove almost 8 hours round trip, in one day to Michigan to pick it up and make sure the lanes and equipment were operational. Between Ryan Claxton, working in the office to make sure the owner was getting exactly the bowling alley they wanted and coordinating with the GC, Titus McCrary, the installer that assembled the lanes and the pinsetters, and Matt Claxton, who came at the end to do the finishing touches including the start up, Fusion Bowling is an A Class Company that fulfilled all of our project's needs and more! Great job Fusion. I would use your company in a heart beat for the next project we build that has a bowling alley! And I would recommend to anyone out there to use Fusion Bowling, because they know how to satisfy a customer right down to the last detail!"

The answer to this question gets its own cute little flow chart on its own web page. See our Process page.
It takes about six months to get the equipment ordered, prepped, and ready to ship.
A pair of lanes take about one week to install. Single lanes take about six days, and 4-lane projects take about 11 days.
The window of opportunity is after HVAC is up and running but before flooring is installed.
