Improvements include all new lighting, heating, AV systems, accessibility improvements and the introduction of new acoustic finishes to the coffered ceiling and coves. The renovation will improve thermal comfort in the Chamber and the sound quality of both reinforced (amplified) and live sound.
Any construction project in an existing building presents challenges. The Chambers extensive plaster detailing, 100 year old structure and wood paneling required extreme care in the design and installation of new elements. The newly renovated Chamber will host its first Council meeting on December 10th of this year!
