Main works commenced at Savoy Place in January 2014. Check this page for news from the project team.

The IET is proud to announce the award of the main works building contract for a full refurbishment and extension to its London headquarters at Savoy Place to Gilbert-Ash Limited. Work commenced on site at Savoy Place on 27 January 2014, and is due to complete in the summer of 2015.

Gilbert-Ash Limited have completed a number of very successful projects in London, and have good experience in lecture theatre design and development, including the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool and the Lyric Theatre in Belfast.       

The closure of Savoy Place in July 2013 and the move of IET staff and member facilities to temporary offices at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' home in London, One Birdcage Walk, has allowed the full strip out of the building in readiness for the refurbishment.

Watch our latest video update for more information.

Further detail on the project and our temporary London home at One Birdcage Walk is available on these General FAQs and Co-location FAQs pages (access for IET members only).
