The students’ centre will be the first new building at LSE for more than 40 years. It will be constructed on the site of the current St Philips building, where demolition has just got underway, within the campus near the Strand in London.
The proposed building incorporating two basement levels is designed to bring together several student facilities under one roof. These include late night student venue, gym, multi-use learning space, bar, roof terrace and office space for student services.
The project team also includes project manager Turner and Townsend, and quantity surveyors Northcroft. Architect O’Donnell and Tuomey has designed the student centre to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard with photovoltaics, CHP units, green roof and integrated water and heat saving measures to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard.
