Lighting in the Chapel
Following the incident on Christmas Eve, we have had the contractors back to address the issues of the pelmet lighting.
After a visit in January, the Architect has issued a report on the probable cause of the problem and negotiations are underway within those involved to reinstall the units in a way which will remove the problem and provide secondary restraint on the units.
For the time being chairs should not be set on the red lines in the carpet or closer to the walls.
Acoustics in the Chapel
It is proposed to install acoustic panels to the ceiling and to the walls. We are currently trying to determine the best product to use for this job.
The toilets in the hall are being decorated and this should be complete by the end of January.
