It is done: the first big tranche of the large modernisation and renovation works of the cupola hall at the Hanover Congress Centre (HCC) has been successfully copleted. The historic festival rooms – Blue Room, Bonatz Room and Red Room including the adjacent foyer- shine in new splendor and will be inaugurated on September 4. Thus, after a 3 month construction period, top-class event facilities for conferences, seminars and all kinds of festive events are again available in these venues. The halls are suitable for a number of persons beteween 20 and 217. Additionally, the renovation of those parts of the tiled roof located above the historic halls has been finished as well as the extensive modernisation of the air condition, the ventilation and heating system. So far, the investment costs add up to 3.6 million Euros, 600,000 Euros thereof for the new roof. Tradition and Innovation in a new, attractive setting.
“During the renovation of our historic festival rooms we have closely cooperated with the monument conservation department and realized a concept that consequently rapproches a classy ambiance,” explains the director of the HCC, Joachim König. Behind these impressive walls now hide the most modern management utilities for which we have placed nine kilometres of cables. For the renovation of the roof we installed more than 25,000 new tiles. We are very pleased to revive our motto “Tradition and Innovation” in new, more attractive banquet halls.”
