City Hall Renovation Project

More About Downtown

The current Bristol City Hall building was completed in 1963 and is more than showing its age. The building layout is inefficient for conducting City business and difficult to navigate for residents and visitors. The building contains outdated HVAC and mechanical components and does not reflect a modern municipal government operation. The City Hall Renovation Project will provide a state-of-the-art building for the Bristol community that is designed to meet today’s needs and in a manner that is resilient and sustainable to meet the City of Bristol’s future demands. It is imperative that City Hall renovations meet today’s demands and future challenges by maximizing technology and flexibility of design. The project consists of a complete renovation of the existing facility.

The primary objectives of the renovation project are:

  • Increase efficiencies and improve office space for residents and city staff utilizing the building.
  • Replace existing mechanical systems (heat, air conditioning and potable water and sanitary facilities).
  • Improve ADA accessibility to and within the building.
  • Improve security
  • Improve exterior building aesthetics
