SPECIAL FEATURES

 

ARCHITECTURAL:

The entire main lower lobby and Cummings Hall were totally gutted to the original exposed structure. New coffered ceiling in the lobby and curved ceilings in the main hall were built. Due to the fact that the original design was “over budget”, Tridôme proposed several “cost saving” measures which enabled the project to proceed – including the complete re-design of the ceiling in the main hall. There were several new solid mahogany “built-ins” including the bar, the cloakroom area, and display cases.

MECHANICAL:

Complete new distribution system for air conditioning and heating.

STRUCTURAL:

New full span beams to eliminate several columns and new openings in bearing walls.

ELECTRICAL:

Complete new wiring of entire hall and entry area with new high quality suspended fixtures and wall sconces.

CONSTRUCTION TIME:

Four (4) months

 

PARTICULARITIES

High quality wall finishes. New mahogany panelling throughout with solid mahogany crown moldings and chair rail moldings. The existing oak floor was completely re-done.
