BMJ Architects undertook six phases of refurbishment of the ACEX and Bone buildings situated on ICL’s South Kensington site adjacent to the Knightsbridge Conservation Area and the listed Royal College of Music.
Refurbishment includes the overcladding of the existing buildings and provision of a new welcoming entrance. Fit-out within the building includes the Carbon Capture Pilot Plant, office research laboratory, teaching, seminar and breakout. A rooftop extension provides a new floor of flexible laboratory, office and seminar space for the department of Chemical Engineering.
The fit-outs were designed to provide modern, open plan, flexible space to support world class research activities and diverse teaching styles.
