The plans are now available on the local Council website. You can find a link in my blog on the College website. The proposed building will have seven floors,
with public areas on the ground, first and second floors. These will be spacious and bright, with wide staircases and flexible meeting and catering space. There will be a 200-seat lecture theatre on the first floor, with state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities.
The third and fourth floors will be office space for the College’s staff and officers, with open-plan design and plenty of small meeting rooms. The fifth floor will be surplus to our requirements when we move into the building, but will provide expansion space when we need it in the future. In the meantime, the fifth floor will be leased, just as we’re currently leasing the fourth floor at 21 Prescot Street.
The sixth floor, which is set back from the main façade at front and back, will have roof terraces on both sides and will be used as a meeting and function room. The seventh floor will house much of the mechanical equipment for the building, as well as several study bedrooms for members to use
when staying in London on College business.
