A magnificent new oak floor has been lain down in the Exhibition Room which reflects its octagonal plan and is focussed on a central starburst. New sash windows have been commissioned and installed to replace decaying 1950s sashes. Together with secondary glazing, these will enhance energy efficiency in the Knight of Glin Exhibition Room and will also improve sound insulation.

 Air ducts concealed beneath grills around the perimeter of the Exhibition Room are linked to an air handling unit stored in the basement. This forms an integral part of a climate control system to regulate heating and humidity levels which in turn will ensure the Exhibition Room meets necessary curatorial standards.
