Call for schemes to join with Open House London 2014

Blackwall Tunnel

Blackwall Tunnel: One of the sites that participated in Open House London 2013

Open House London, now in its 22nd year, is back in September with the theme of ‘revealing’ - offering the public the opportunity to see inside more than 800 outstanding examples of contemporary and historic buildings across 30 boroughs.

ICE London is partnering with Open House London for the fourth year running to showcase civil engineering and infrastructure during this influential architecture festival, and to help raise awareness of civil engineering with the public.

Last year more than 50 engineering projects across 22 London boroughs took part, and 11,000 visits were made to civil engineering sites through walks, tours and boat trips.

This year ICE London will be hosting a series of events including a boat tour through the Thames Estuary, walking tours, historical tours of ICE’s One Great George Street headquarters, as well as opening up award-winning infrastructure across the capital.

New to the programme this year is the Open Debate, which will highlight the role civil engineers play in shaping London’s built environment.

  • If you are working on a scheme that could be opened to the public for Open House London 2014, which takes place 20 to 21 September, please contact Carol Bayne or Vilma Marques on 0207 665 2137 or openhouselondon@ice.org.uk.
