Executive summary

This decision requests approval for capital expenditure of £31,000 for the purchase of blinds to London’s Living Room windows on the 9th floor of City Hall.

The installation of the blinds with the chosen screen fabric will improve the users experience in the London’s Living Room; It will reduce the glare and visible light coming into the space and enable delegates to better observe AV screens used for conferences and events. Television camera recordings will also improve as the blinds will provide much more control to the room lighting levels.

So as not to disrupt the business of the Authority the installation works will take place out of hours, and on days when the London’s Living Room is not being used.
