Fee includes one on-site ICORD staff member who will be present during your booking. The staff member will be able to help you with simple set-up (getting out chairs, coat rack, tables, etc. for you), and will be present in the building during your event. More extensive or complicated set up for the Atrium is available for an extra cost. Please note that you will be booking the atrium of a research centre. While the space has excellent acoustics, it was not built as a performance space and does have some limitations. We will do our best to help you, but ICORD staff have very limited control over the lighting in the atrium, and no control over the ventilation, temperature, random noises, etc. If you plan to bring in extra lighting or specialized equipment for your production, you must provide details and get approval at least 3 weeks prior to your event.

Additional fees may be applicable. Please contact us for more information.

Bookings will only be confirmed upon receipt of full payment to ICORD.

Cancellation policy:
A booking may be cancelled up to 5 business days after the confirmation of booking, beyond which the payment will be non-refundable. For events booked less than two weeks in advance, any cancellations will be non-refundable.
