William Penney Data Science Institute

A Centre for Data

The refurbished William Penney Building ground floor accommodates the prestigious new Imperial College Data Science Institute (DSI). The space was designed to accommodate both the DSI and act as a collaborative space with its national and international partners including KPMG.

The aim of the new space was to create Big Data research institute that is world renowned for research in and across the core technologies that are driving the Big Data revolution. The Data Science Innovations Hub focuses on research themes in data science and technology that are new and/or difficult for individual departments to pursue independently due to their unique cross-departmental nature.


538 sqm


London, UK


Imperial College London

The space includes an open plan research laboratory, a visualisation studio, offices, meeting & seminar, breakout and support spaces with a state-of-the-art IT system which projects images onto the façade glass. Staff and Users were decanted from the ground floor of the centre whilst phase works took place within the building which also remained fully occupied on the floors above.
