Facilities and room hire

Facilities at the Energy Institute

The energy institute (EI) is located in an attractive Grade II* listed Georgian building which was once home to the famous Victorian architect Sir Alfred Waterhouse. Sir Alfred Waterhouse set up his home and architectural practice in 1865. Two of Waterhouse’s most famous buildings are Manchester Town Hall and The Natural History Museum ‘a cathedral of nature’.

61 New Cavendish Street underwent a refurbishment which enabled the EI to showcase the retrofitting of an historic property with energy efficient features. Members and external organisations are invited to hire the rooms to hold conferences, meetings and seminars.

Our friendly and experienced staff can ensure all your venue requirements are catered for, each of our rooms are air conditioned and layouts can be adapted according to your own specifications. All rooms may be hired for sessions between 09:00-13:00 and 14:00-17:30 Monday to Friday (except bank holidays).
