Multi-million pound revamp to create "global engineering hub"

A £30M refurbishment of the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) London HQ at Savoy Place will turn it into “a global engineering hub” it has been claimed.

Savoy Place has been closed since July 2013 and will reopen fully on 1 November with a panoramic roof terrace and a number of permanent exhibition spaces.

The refurbishment will include a number of exhibitions such as ‘100 ways engineering has changed our lives’ – featuring items from the railway to refrigeration – and a celebration of engineers that have changed society, including Michael Faraday,  Alan Turing and Caroline Haslett.

IET chief executive Nigel Fine said: “Boasting state of the art facilities, the refurbished Savoy Place will provide a global engineering hub for IET members and the wider engineering and technology community.”

The improved venue will also include a second lecture theatre and an enlarged riverside suite.
