ACCA to leave Lincoln’s Inn Fields for The Adelphi

THE HISTORIC Lincoln’s Inn Fields will no longer house the ACCA – but it is making only a short trip down the road to newly-refurbished, and equally historic, floors at the Adelphi Building.

The institute has housed itself within London’s Holborn since 1996, and it will stay in the area with two floors at The Adelphi – whose art deco façade was added onto the 18th century edifice.

Moving will bring together the institute, which currently operates from three sites across central London.

“Over time, this arrangement has become increasingly unfit for purpose,” said ACCA chief executive Helen Brand.

“Our new home will provide us with a dynamic, inspiring and sustainable workplace to which we will be proud to welcome our staff, students, members, partners and other stakeholders from around the globe – a world class London headquarters that befits our world class organisation.”

Refurbishment at The Adelphi will be complete in December 2015, with staff in the building from January 2016.

ACCA’s move follows a trend which has seen other institutes up sticks.

CIMA moved last month to The Helicon, in London EC2, while CIPFA moved from its Robert St office in London’s West End to Mint House at St Katherine’s Dock last year.
