Very nice!

 

I will say. being in Florida, we rarely see a Hall with stairs :)

In many states equal acess laws require an elevator for a new or a remodel two storey Kingdom Hall. That can be the biggest single item in a remodel project. That was the case in a KH we visited in California. It was built on a slope and street acess was easy to the upper level where the auditorium was located. Parking was in the basement and they had to install an elevator. Most just used the stairs, the elevator was very slow.

That is a big one! Will this be for multiple congregations or is it one that is combined with something else like a translation office? 

8 Congregations + 7 Groups and 2 appartements for special full-time servants

This hall also owns an elevator

Since Florida is fairly flat, we seldom see or have the need of a two-story building to serve as a KH. Also, due to the low elevation and close proximity to a couple of large bodies of water, we also seldom have buildings with basements.

 

In most areas we can locate enough land to construct a single level building complete with parking lot.

Building kingdom halls for the new world and we don't have time and so we need to build many kingdom halls for use in the new world before the out break of the great tribulation.sentments passed in one of the meetings inthe LDC on the need for new kingdom halls

In the United States the emphasis is on making better use of the ones we have. There are few if any new Kingdom Hall projects going on in our area.

We don't have a lot in Africa due to the increase in the number of publishers. There is need to build as many as possible both for those joining as well as those that will be resurrected

NICE!

 

Is your new carpet "roll goods" or "carpet squares? ... if you know?

 

Also, is the sound console going to stay in that area or be located near the back of the auditorium?

They used large carpet rolls. And the sound console is staying as in the picture

I will be working at an LDC project the next couple weeks.

 

Next week we are supposed to complete the sound system installation. It will be in the left rear of the Hall. Yours is the first I have seen that far forward in the Hall. Is this common in your area?

 

The following week we are supposed to install the carpet. The US Branch had mostly changed to carpet squares.

Most traditional KHs here have some kind of a reception in the back of the hall, where you can get your literature etc. Also the sound system is located there. It is a new concept that the sound desk is in the center of the hall

Our LDC (2018) built hall has the sound control in the back left in the corner.

The LDC Team that renovated the Assembly Hall (2017) put the sound in the front of the stage (about 12 rows back) in the main Auditorium.

We both use carpet squares (but we do not have the 'logo' in the carpet). 7cdbbe7d1b2567d78bd4ca1610d812bd.jpg&key=949dafbb71aa44825825a7c5698427a537f63981d4a8aec41088b2156582904257f0e295d450cfc4a650a7c875775447.jpg&key=1dc0997d74761f127510b2fef27422687593bf1f3c903b526f1c275a53378057
