The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) is a prestigious institution with a history dating back to 1869. With IOM3’s status and clear link to Britain’s industrial heritage – and future – you could regard the Institute as having the weight of history on its shoulders. However, their new conferencing facilities in London’s Knowledge Quarter was a dramatic, interactive and breath-taking feat of contemporary design.
‘The Mine’, as it’s informally dubbed, is a conferencing venue like no other. Designed for use by IOM3’s members to network and hold internal team meetings, and to host external events and exhibitions as a revenue raiser, the space needed to be unique.
