Rennie Room

About the Rennie Room

Located on the lower ground floor, the Rennie Room has windows giving natural daylight to the space which is styled in a modern, minimalist theme. This, the light coloured walls and uncluttered space result in an ideal function space for meetings, receptions, presentations and dining events for between 36 to 100 people depending on the layout.

An interconnecting door to the Tredgold room can be a suitable breakout space. It is also adjacent to the Palmer room and Godfrey Mitchell Theatre further providing for an excellent combination of rooms.

The room is named after Sir John Rennie who was president of the institution like his father (also John Rennie) before him. They are renowned for building major structures including a number of London bridges, dockyards and harbours.
