Renovation of Ripon Building to end in March

: Work on renovating the Ripon Building, the headquarters of Chennai Corporation, will be completed in March, Mayor M. Subramanian said on Thursday.

Speaking to mediapersons after inspecting the work being carried out to conserve the architectural heritage of the building, he said the works were being taken up at a cost of Rs.7.70 crore with funds from the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. Mr.Subramanian said that the renovation had to be taken up as the roof was leaking and the weathering course had been damaged. Modern materials, including tiles and false ceiling, had been used over the years as a short-term measure.
