The CII will move in June to its new office at 21 Lombard Street, 1st Floor, EC3V 9AH -- next door to the original site of the Lloyd's Coffee House, to where the origins of insurance can be traced. The move is part of the CII's commitment to modernising itself in line with its Strategic Manifesto. The move to Lombard Street will provide an open-plan, fully up-to-date and technologically-sound base from which to operate.
The Knowledge Services team will continue to provide their services in the new office, including offering access to items stored in offsite locations.
The Aldermanbury building is being sold to the City of London, which is keen to protect and promote it. The Great Hall will be shut for refurbishment from 28 September 2018.
A selection of CII heritage articles will move to the new office, including facsimiles of the windows, insignia and the Royal Charter. Selected remaining articles will be placed in safe storage, with the intention of holding an auction in aid of the Insurance Charities.
The CII's other locations are unaffected.
