Griffiths Architects documented and administered the restoration works to the building. The works involved the reconstruction of various elements, mortar repairs, structural reinforcements and the re-pointing of brickwork and stucco repairs.

The Former Commercial Bank is one of numerous buildings that were part of the Goldfields Earthquake Restoration Fund. The earthquake caused extensive damage to the place in the form of exterior cracking to walls and openings along the street facades. Internally, there were further instances of cracking to walls, arches and ceilings alongside damaged plasterwork and the collapse of a second floor ceiling.
