At IDRC we have 15 main arbitration / hearing rooms and over 40 retiring rooms

We can reconfigure some main rooms so that up to 200 people can be accommodated in the largest room with the smaller hearing rooms holding 15 people comfortably. In addition, retiring rooms (which can also be used for caucusing or as break-out or “war” rooms) are available throughout the Centre. We now have the flexibility to be able to reconfigure these rooms as well so that they can accommodate more people. All rooms can be set up in a variety of different layouts depending on your specific requirements.

All rooms are soundproofed to a very high level, air-conditioned and well-lit (there is natural light throughout the building, as well as excellent Category 2 lighting) and are equipped with full Category 6 wiring, allowing voice and data transmissions. 

All rooms are secure and private and confidentiality is a priority. We also offer private, luxurious working facilities for arbitrators and mediators, including our new private area – The Veeder Lounge.

Care has been taken to provide ample shelving. Rooms are furnished with strong, large tables and comfortable seating and are decorated so as to provide a pleasing atmosphere.
