Green Globe Member Hannover Congress Centrum, located in Hanover, Germany, confirms that restoration of the historic front of the building, the cupola hall, will begin this summer.
The Hannover Congress Centrum is recognized as a „Cultural Monument of National Importance“, and the renovation of the front of the historic hall will demonstrate first steps of preserving the historic monument.
The procedure will be funded by the German government, the German Federal Commission for Cultural and Media Affairs, and the Federal State of Lower Saxony. The Lower Saxony federal office for monument preservation will start with the construction of a prototype axis in early summer. This will be followed by first partial restoration works of the entire front, especially windows and doors, but also the front itself.
The entire project will be ongoing for a period of five years until 2016. The goal is to give the old splendor back to the historic front of the cupola hall, as well as the festive halls and to let them shine anew.
„We are delighted that, due to the acknowledgement as cultural monument and with approval of the first funding, this long-term process will commence this year. We are extremely proud and excited about the fact that first results may be presented as early as 2014, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary”, said the Joachim König, Managing Director at the Hannover Congress Centrum.
