Barry Dobbins to speak at BCO’s tour of Royal College of Pathologists HQ
The Royal College of Pathologists relocated to their new headquarters in December 2018. Designed by Bennetts Associates, the new hybrid building reflects the educational, social, workplace and residential uses typical of a Royal College, and it is an example of a new generation of ‘Knowledge Buildings’ which are helping shape the future of some of the UK’s leading institutions.
The BCO members-event, to be held at the college on 11th June and sponsored by Waterman and Bennetts Associates, will focus on the design of the new building and how this is helping the college deliver their goal of advancing the scientific practice of pathology, whilst better serving its members. As part of the speaker panel, Barry Dobbins, Waterman’s Director of Structures, will give his insight into the pioneering concrete techniques behind the building’s structural design.
The eight-storey college building features a double-height entrance atrium and incorporates floor to ceiling windows on all floors to maximise natural light. The Bennetts Associates architectural design comprises a suite of state-of-the-art facilities for the College’s members and trainees, including multi-purpose 210-person conference theatre and meeting rooms, office space and examination rooms from which to expand the College’s programme of academic activities.
