Waterman projects shortlisted for RIBA London Awards
Waterman is delighted that the Royal College of Pathologists and 4 Cannon Street have been shortlisted for the RIBA London Awards.
The prestigious RIBA Awards take place in all regions across the UK. They recognise successful projects that reflect changes and innovation in architecture, with an emphasis on the commitment to designing and developing buildings and spaces which improve and enhance people’s lives.
Royal College of Pathologists
Home to medical research professionals for over 50 years, the Royal College of Pathologists recently invested in stunning new premises in Aldgate, central London. The new eight-storey headquarters features a double-height entrance atrium with floor to ceiling windows to maximise natural daylight. Designed by Bennetts Associates architects, the scheme includes a suite of state-of-art facilities with a multi-purpose 210-person conference theatre, meeting rooms, office space and examination rooms.
Waterman provided the structural design for the project, working closely with the architect to incorporate pioneering concrete techniques which add to the premium look of the building’s interior finishes, whilst also saving time and cost elsewhere.

4 Cannon Street
4 Cannon Street (formerly known as 2-6 Cannon Street) is a 14,400 sq m high-end office development overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Designed for maximum sustainability, the eight-storey building plus basement features a 1,000 sq m grand entrance with smart design, cutting edge technology and stylish interiors throughout. The building is occupied by Fidelity Investments (FMR LLC) and FIL Limited, both of which benefit from floor to ceiling windows, an entire garden level as well as a panoramic roof terrace with stunning views across the capital.
Waterman provided structural engineering design for the base build and we were later involved in the fit out.
The RIBA Awards are judged by visiting each shortlisted project in person. Due to COVID-19, the judging of all buildings has been postponed. Provided it is safe to proceed, judging will resume in due course with the aim to conclude the awards programme in the second half of this year.
The Regional Award winners across the UK will go on to compete in the highly-coveted National Award. The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize, the best new building, will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning buildings, following which, the RIBA Stirling Prize will be announced live on BBC in recognition of the country’s utmost architectural excellence in June.
