The four columns supporting the first floor have now been reinstated at the sourthern end of the building.  One original column was uncovered when the toilets were removed from the building and three new columns have been installed, taking the building back to its original structural design.  The new columns sit on plinths of Portland stone which weight around 1/3 tonne each and have been cut to match the original.
