19TH CENTURY GLASSHOUSE
Three Glasshouses in the world renowned gardens of Fota House have been restored to their former glory with the use of Accoya® wood. The restoration project was commissioned by the Irish Heritage Trust after its purchase of the estate in 2007. The 19th century property in Cork, Ireland, had been abandoned almost 40 years ago and had deteriorated to a virtual ruin. Fota House is located just outside the city of Cork, near to Cork Harbour, where constantly changing weather conditions have a heavy impact on local buildings. Accoya® wood, supplied by Abbey Woods, was selected as the material of choice for the restoration of the glasshouses due to its renowned Class 1 durability and stability in all weather conditions.
