Savoy Place upgrade

This exciting two-year refurbishment project will preserve Savoy Place's important heritage, and make a number of improvements to provide a modern home for the IET.

Due to reopen in October 2015, the building will feature a range of services for IET members – in particular the Faraday Centre – which includes a large member lounge, Knowledge Centre, meeting and brainstorming rooms and the Kelvin Café.
