Work set to finish next year

Bennetts Associates Royal College of Pathologists

A new headquarters building for the Royal College of Pathologists in east London by Bennetts Associates has been given the green light.

The current building, called the Goodman Building and which was completed in 1989, will be torn down with the new scheme due to be completed towards the end of next year.

The six-storey block on Alie Street in Whitechapel will include five floors of office space as well as a library, meeting rooms and a 200-seat conference room. The top floor will include an open plan pavilion.
