Autumn Scientific Meeting 2015

at One Great George Street, London
15-16 October 2015

The meeting will be held on 15th & 16th October 2015 in the Telford Theatre, One Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AA.  

The building, designed by James Miller, is the headquarters of the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE), the world's first professional engineering body. 

The spread of government offices down Whitehall led to the compulsory purchase of the previous headquarter building in 1908 which was on part of the site where the Treasury Building now stands. ICE was offered the freeholds of 1-5 Great George Street and £30,000 compensation; ICE purchased 6-7 to enable construction of the current building with the north-west corner being completed in the 1930's once the freeholds of 8-9 Great George Street expired.

It first opened on Monday 25th October 1910. It celebrated its 100th birthday in 2010 when a time capsule and plaque were revealed to commemorate the centenary.
