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 multipurpose 210 person conference theatre, meeting rooms, office space and examination rooms.

Waterman’s team is proud to have 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 reducing the structure’s carbon footprint, and saving both time and cost elsewhere.
