The Finlandia Club has secured approximately $1,400,000 so far for the building renovations from all sources. More than $600,000 is still needed to cover all the expected costs of the renovation.
The renovations are planned currently to take place in three phases as follows:
Phase1: Building Accessibility and fire suppression Improvements
This phase will introduce two low use elevators that will give wheel chair accessibility to all three levels of the building: the Hoito restaurant, the main hall as well as the second level. All three levels will also have new barrier free washrooms. At the completion of Phase1, the building will be protected with a fire sprinkler system. Work on Phase1 is expected to start Spring, 2010. Stay tuned for the latest information in this Blog!
Phase II: Building envelope (exterior) and the roof. Expected start is Spring/Summer 2010.
Phase III: Building interior. Expected start is Summer/Fall 2010.
