Amazing Open Spaces In A Sustainably Designed Building

Events@no6 is the home of and has been purpose built by The Royal College of Pathologists.
The building itself has been designed by Bennetts Associates, the first and only architectural practice in the world to have approved science-based targets and be carbon neutral via the United Nations Climate Neutral Now framework.

The atrium and floor to ceiling heights allow good levels of useful daylight to be achieved which reduces the need for lighting power, and where lighting is required LEDs have been specified. In terms of wellbeing the displacement ventilation uses air-change levels well over those used in traditional servicing strategies and provide improved air quality. Good access to daylight is also proven to improve productivity and happiness.

The building also has a biodiverse green roof that will provide habitats for local bird and insect species, as well as reducing water run-off and reducing the urban heat island effect. Their core values are to reduce, reuse and to recycle.

The venue has nine bright meeting rooms and event spaces, with in-built AV, and flexible breakout spaces. Our bright and airy spaces are available weekdays, evenings and weekends and can accommodate a range of meetings and events from training days to fine dining.
