The restoration of the Palm House entailed the replacement of the original African Hardwood at lower levels and the faithful restoration of the metal work on the upper levels. The restoration process was a project of heroic proportions as the building was taken down piece by piece, then, after usable elements had been repaired, put back up again.

The scaffolding was left in place while the parts were being overhauled at a workshop in Santry. The scaffolding framework was used as a reference grid, ensuring the refurbished glasshouse was re-erected exactly as before.
