The Skempton Building houses the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London.[1] It is named after the English civil engineer Sir Alec Skempton, one of the founders of British Soil Mechanics study, and former head of the department.[2] The departmental building changed its name from Civil Engineering Building to its current name in 2004,[3] a short time after Skempton's death in 2001.
