This project for London School of Economics (LSE) involved the construction of a state of the art flexible and highly sustainable academic and teaching building, designed by renowned architects Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners. It also included a new public square at the campus for LSE's largest ever redevelopment.
Creagh's scope of work involved the supply and installation of 13 stories of hollowcore flooring, grouting and structural topping for the building.
Opening in 2019, the new building will become a world-class home for the political sciences. The lower floors of the building provide students with a place to convene and call their own, with flexible spaces for independent study, and a number of lecture theatres and seminar rooms for teaching.
The Departments of Government and International Relations, the European Institute, the International Inequalities Institute and a new School of Public Policy will occupy the upper floors of the building, creating the first composite home for the political sciences.
The new public square that will be created at the northern end of Houghton Street will provide the campus with a clear central landmark. The building also includes the LSE Alumni, a custom-designed space through which they can welcome their alumni back to their campus.
