To accomplish a renovation in place without interruption of the broadcast signal, RBDG proposed that the construction be accomplished in two phases. All-new technical spaces were built first, including two mirror-image control rooms and studios and a central technical operations center between them, along with a new public entrance and a seating area that displays the station’s collection of radio memorabilia. Once those spaces were complete, including the installation of entirely new broadcast equipment, it was possible to switch over the operations and begin broadcast from the new on-air control room. With the staff relocated to temporary office space, the existing facility was renovated to create new offices, editing rooms, and a variety of support spaces.
