Birmingham Town Hall


Birmingham Town Hall

During the recent multi-million pound refurbishment of Birmingham Town Hall, it was necessary to protect the historic concert organ from damage. The organ consultant advised on the strategy for achieving this, including the design of the protective cladding, the maintenance of appropriate atmospheric conditions within the organ enclosure, and regular inspections during the course of the project. He also undertook a condition survey before the organ was cocooned so that responsibility for any subsequent damage could be established.

Once the refurbishment of the building was complete, he oversaw the re-commissioning of the organ, and some small changes to the console arrangements and pipework.
