The Welding Institute


The Welding Institute is a world-leading authority on the development of engineering practices industry-wide. As part of new Eric Parry designed building on the Cambridge site, Luke Hughes was commissioned to design and install a 9m oak and walnut boardroom table and bespoke etched glass awards boards.

Our design, with a focus on engineering to befit this setting, includes integrated cable management with veneered cable ports set within a broad oval shape with squared ends. A highlight of the project was the design of the new awards boards, set within the window frame of the boardroom. The awards boards are created using etched glass and are illuminated around the edge to enable the lettering to glow. The new facilities, along with our bespoke design, will enable the institute to expand and continue their important work.

The project has since won:
RIBA East Award 2017
RIBA National Award 2017
