Willmott Dixon’s interiors company has won the £10.6 million project to fit-out a new eight storey building for the world famous London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
The project follows LSE’s acquisition last year of 32 Lincoln’s Inn Fields to enlarge its campus and will see Willmott Dixon carry out a full internal modernisation of the Grade two listed building to integrate it with LSE’s existing campus. The scope of work covers approximately 11,500m2.
Willmott Dixon will start on site at the end of March, working with LSE’s project manager Davis Langdon, and complete by November. Also on the team are Jestico and Whiles, architect, Ellis & Moore, structural engineers and Hoare Lea for the M&E.
The fast-track programme will give LSE a completely new interior at 32 Lincoln Inn Fields. It involves stripping out chimney stacks, partitions and M&E services to create a new learning environment packed with the latest academic facililities including two Harvard style lecture theatres.
Gerry Graville, Willmott Dixon Interiors managing director says, “This is great news for London as it will see a major enlargement of one of the capital’s most renowned places of learning. We are looking forward to helping LSE realise its growth ambitions."
