Celebrating a milestone for Project Transform. Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) President, Professor Derek Alderson, was joined by past presidents Sir Barry Jackson and Dame Clare Marx, alongside Jackie Weller, Project Director, for the groundbreaking ceremony.
The project will see a large new build extension and refurbishment of the RCS, which faces onto Lincoln's Inn Fields, one of the most important historic open spaces in London. The project provides new facilities for the college including flexible teaching spaces, examination rooms, function rooms, a cafe and a large glazed central atrium, promoting cross fertilisation of knowledge through shared flexible and social working environments. The project also includes the redesign and relocation of the historic Hunterian Museum.
Work is due to be completed in 2020.
“This moment represents a significant milestone in the long and eventful timeline that is the repeated cycle of construction, destruction and reconstruction of the Royal College of Surgeons which stretches back to the early 1800s.”
