The Russell Building, on the Rothamsted Research campus in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, was constructed between 1914 and 1918 and was officially opened in 1919. It originally housed the soil laboratories and was later used as the Institute’s administrative offices and library.
Over one hundred year’s later, the Russell Building continues to be a vibrant and dynamic R&D hub – where agri-tech visionaries turn cutting edge scientific research into practical, workable solutions.
