Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists relocating to Southwark from Regent’s Park
Bennetts Associates has completed work on a new building for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in Southwark.
The college is relocating to 10 Union Street from an address in Regent’s Park with the Southwark site linking two buildings, a converted 19th century hop warehouse and a 1980s office building, by creating a new atrium.
More than 200 staff will be billeted at the site which also includes conferencing facilities and a public café.
The four-storey glazed atrium covers the courtyard space between the two buildings and will increase levels of natural light throughout the building, particularly in the central meeting area below.
Bennetts Associates has previously worked with two other medical Royal Colleges, creating a new HQ for the Royal College of Pathologists in 2019 and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 2015.
Others to work on the Southwark job include contractor 8build, project manager and QS Burke Hunter Adams and services engineer KJ Tait.
