Cementitious render applied in the 1950s to the three chimneystacks of the CIty Assembly House caused the decay of brickwork which threatened their long term stability. A programme of repair is currently underway involving the removal of this render and the application of a fresh lime based render.

New rooflights for the octagonal Exhibition Room and the stairhall of the City Assembly House were craned in overnight and installed by Lambstongue last week. Specially commissioned SmartGlass will allow the control of light in the octagonal Exhibition Room for curatorial and other purposes whilst both rooflights will enhance the thermal efficiency of the building.

This project is supported by The Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Foundation and the following supporters:
