Claremont City Hall Renovation
Images Description Credits
The City Hall renovation process began in 1989 when the City Council decided to remain downtown.  Subsequent councils refined the scope of the project to include seismic strengthening, accessibility issues, as well as new wiring, plumbing, and mechanical systems.  The completed project is a 15,000 square foot adaptive reuse facility on a 23,865 square foot site.

The interior of the project was reconfigured to meet the needs of today‚Äôs civic functions.  For example, the Council chamber is now located in fire truck bays.

To provide access for all members of the community, the five different levels of the original structure were connected with ramps and elevators.  Also, every effort was made to conform to historical references when selecting interior details, finishes, light fixtures, and furnishings.
