We’re just edging into summer now and I realised that it’s been a couple of months since I took you behind the scenes of our new building at Adanac Park. You can see from the pictures above how things have progressed since March and across the business we’re all starting to find out the important things like where our teams will be sitting and what food and drink options will be available!

There are also mixed feelings for many people as Romsey Road has been Ordnance Survey’s home since the 1960s and we’re now in our final months there. The pictures below show you how this site looked in its early days. If you have any memories of Romsey Road, let us know as we’re gathering stories on our wiki from all our employees, past and present.

  1. Hi Gemma,
    I remmember the queen comming to open the new complex in Romney Road. I was doing my basic training, Survey. Quite an event we all (the mob) were outside so that we could see the queen arrive and then see her and the party review the displays set out under the arcade. Took some pictures of the event. A great start to my 11 year stint with the OS.

    Yours Gareth
