The Pigott Construction Company had gone downhill by mid-century, and was involved in some rather large scandals nearer the end. They built the new City Hall at Bay and Main, which then suffered a rash of falling marble tiles (one which nearly killed a councillor and aids) due to sub-standard mountings. I can go hit the bookcase and look for more if y'all wish.

In another interesting tidbit, the architectural style was actually part of a failed bid at the time on behalf of City Council to get a visit from Gozer the Gozerian, in the hopes of "finally putting Hamilton on the Map".
