Behind the photograph the first stage of an extensive four-year conservation project has begun, with restoration work being carried out on the front facade of the building and the clocktower. Seismic bracing work has also begun and will include the installation of metal reinforcements behind the clocktower columns, made from a high-tech stainless steel that is normally used to make submarine propellers.
