Tour of Lloyds Building
The internationally renowned Lloyd's Building was designed by the architect Richard Rogers and took eight years to build, and used over 33,500 cubic metres of concrete, 30,000 square metres of stainless steel cladding and 12,000 square metres of glass during the construction.
The Insurance Institute of Sussex is now giving members (and one guest each) a chance to have a "behind the scenes" tour of this, the centre of the world's specialised insurance market. This will be provided by Martin Leach, a member of the Lloyd's visits team.
Costing just £12 per person, the afternoon will begin with a sit-down talk on the history, development, structure and present day activities of Lloyd's and will be followed by a tour of the building. This will include a visit to the Adam Room, glass lifts, Underwriting Room, Loss Book, Lutine Bell and Nelson Collection.
Dependent on the number of questions asked, etc. the tour is expected to last approximately two hours.
