The old plenary hall of the State Parliament Lower Saxony started to show signs of old age after decades of use since it was constructed in 1962. Among them were missing transparency, some constructional defects as well as improper accessibility. In 2014, the decision was made for
the parliament building to be modernised from ground up. The exterior remained mostly the same, while the interior saw massive changes. What followed was the redevelopment of the plenary hall and its surroundings, the meeting and office areas, the visitor areas as well as the canteen. The planner´s aim was to redevelop the building with focus on today´s needs while reinterpreting the spirit of its initial architect, Dieter Oesterlen.
Lindner AG contributed to the interior fit-out of the new plenary hall area with several works. Dry construction works have been carried out in the hall itself, the foyer and the restaurant. Furthermore, the foyer area was separated with Lindner Life 137 glass partitions. Within these partitions and in several other places, Lindner doors can be found both as standard doors and fire protection doors. The plenary hall and its neighbouring hallways saw the fitting of real-wood veneered wall claddings of type FIREwood. The front end of the hall was was cladded with an acoustically effective wall cladding built with powdercoated steel plates. An artistic adaptation of the Lower Saxonian coat of arms was constructed with laminated safety glass and placed upon this wall cladding. Lindner also supplied fixed furniture in the form of control desks.
