The mezzanine of the Henry
F. Hall Building, much used for exhibits and displays throughout the year,
is undergoing a facelift.

redesign of the mezzanine has started and will continue through to August.

the lighting system. While some areas will be sealed off during construction,
access to the escalators, elevators, travel agency, Java U and Reggies
will not be affected.
