The construction work included: demolition, asbestos abatements, new windows, new acoustical ceilings, new flooring and the upgrades involved: sprinklers, mechanical systems, fire alarms, electrical and lighting. Some upgrades were also completed on the 1974 addition. The existing North Block was demolished and rebuilt.
