The first phase of a staged refurbishment scheme included new exhibition rooms and a bar. The exhibition room was formed of two administrative offices on the ground floor and the bar was remodelled in the existing bar room which was designed to be flexible enough to house small exhibitions.
The second phase of work included a new restaurant with kitchen, new bookshop, creche, washroom facilities and a drawing materials shop.
Future stages of work at the time included a new slide library, further refurbishment of the public spaces including the enlargement of the library, including the formation of a rare books section and the modernisation of the lecture hall.
