The firm has clinched a £140m design, build and maintain deal with the London School of Economics and Political Science for a 676 room student accommodation project in Southwark.
Equans will demolish an existing warehouse on Glengall Road before delivering a student accommodation, followed by a 50-year facilities management and lifecycle contract.
The new 15-storey halls of residence will include a new gym, external courtyards, roof terraces, shared kitchens, a cinema room, laundry room, amenity space and staff offices.
Equans will provide energy management and monitoring across the sites, bringing innovative technology to deliver a sustainable student experience, and also optimising levels of energy efficiency within the buildings.
Colin Macpherson, Divisional CEO for Equans UK & Ireland, said: “LSE is one of the world’s leading institutions and we are delighted to be playing a key role in supporting their sustainability drive, while enhancing the university experience for students.
“We have a substantial portfolio of universities, which we are actively supporting to achieve their net zero carbon targets, and currently manage more than 10,000 student rooms across the UK -so LSE is fantastic addition.”
