Nearly 70,000 elements of the Temperate glasshouse in London’s Kew Gardens were removed, restored and replaced, along with 15,000 panes of glass in a $41-million project to rehabilitate one of the world’s greatest Victorian-era horticultural ironwork buildings. Owner Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is now completing restocking the 18-meter-tall, 4,880-sq-m building, which had fallen into disrepair during its 155 years of existence. Ramboll U.K. Ltd. was appointed lead consultant and conservation engineer in 2013, and ISG plc. won the works contract in late 2014.
