UCL Laws celebrates Bentham House weathertight milestone
18 September 2017
Bentham House, the home of UCL Laws currently undergoing a three-year £24million re-development, has reached another important milestone with the building being now weathertight.
With the installation of 120 panes of glass across the building, the frontage of the Endsleigh Street view of Bentham House is now completed.
The next stage of the redevelopment is focused on the interior of the building: fitting lecture theatres, teaching spaces, and finishing the student hub, student common room and staircase. Work will continue between now and early spring 2018 in preparation of the reopening of the building.
The finished building will offer an additional 1500sqm, and will house over 100 members of staff, 1000 students and specialist research and pro-bono initiatives in over 180 rooms.
The redevelopment of Bentham House has been delivered by UCL Estates as part of Transforming UCL, the largest capital programme in the university’s history.
Transforming UCL will see substantial investment of over £1.2 billion over a 10-year period to refurbish and develop some of UCL’s most iconic buildings whilst also bringing forward new world class buildings. Together these will enable and support the University’s continued growth.
