With a vision in mind, it was time to enlist the help of
individuals and companies that could transform an existing
City building into a state-of-the-art hub that could serve

delivered a contemporary, elegant, bright aesthetic while
maximizing natural light, integrating LED lighting and
technology, and managing acoustical stability.

"As members of the Lancaster Chamber since
1959, we were thrilled to be selected to work
on the new building. While we did install a new
Firestone EPDM roof on the building, our work
