Savoy Place upgrade

IET London: Savoy Place closed for an exciting two-year refurbishment project on 19 July 2013. Our London headquarters for over 100 years, Savoy Place is a building of character and history. This project will preserve its important heritage, and make a number of improvements to provide a modern home for the IET over the coming decades.
