The ballroom had received little attention since the time of its construction. Further, there was no proper front stair up to the Ballroom vestibule and no acceptable disabled access.
Major achievements were a fitting ceremonial entry, upgraded vestibule and powder rooms, a conserved Ballroom with air conditioning and contemporary lighting. The project provided disabled and service access systems, gave the Ballroom a new and richer look and made it a more useful space. As a consequence it is now a much sought after venue.
