The IET has re-opened its flagship London venue at Savoy Place following a two-year, £30m redevelopment.
The new headquarters will act as an engineering hub in London for the Institution’s members and features exhibitions and venues for events along with views of the capital's landmarks from its position on the north embankment of the Thames.
Savoy Place will be home to a series of exhibits that highlight the history of the IET and the future of engineering.
This will include a display case that features ‘100 engineering ideas that changed the world’ and photo tributes to 126 of the most influential engineers.
“We are delighted that IET London: Savoy Place is now open for all of the engineering community to use and enjoy,” said IET president Naomi Climer.
“Throughout the venue, we celebrate the best in engineering accomplishments, which remind us of the huge positive impact that engineering and technology innovation has on society.
“The new Savoy Place has been over two years in the making and many people have worked incredibly hard to create this fabulous engineering venue. We are very much looking forward to showcasing and sharing Savoy Place with other engineers.”
The building also features two brand-new auditoriums, a second lecture theatre, an enlarged riverside suite, state-of-the-art boardrooms, and a new library.
The roof terrace is open to all members and offers views across the Thames and the London skyline.
A digital chandelier hangs in the reception and live video walls feature the latest engineering innovations on the second floor.
