Construction task:
Disassembly and refurbishment of the gallery seating in the congress hall

The Kongresshaus and the Tonhalle, with their attractive location directly on the lake, attract visitors from all over the world and are of great cultural, social and economic importance for the city of Zurich.

In the current refurbishment project, the gallery seating in the congress hall was refurbished according to the design specifications of the planner and client.

The complete seating(490 seats) was dismantled. Structural wooden parts such as the seat and back shells were refurbished or newly manufactured. The upholstery, which was getting on in years, was also remanufactured and covered with a high-quality upholstery fabric. After reassembly, the seating shines in new splendor.

"The project handling with the company Goracon GmbH and its subcontractor was always pleasant, correct and very obliging. The qualitative specifications were met in full and on schedule. The work was handed over to the client without any defects."
