London South Bank University, Southwark Campus

Contract Value:
London, UK

We are helping to deliver the refurbishment of the London Road Building (LRB) and the new St George’s Quarter building (SGQTR).

The LRB comprises an extensive refurbishment to provide: improved teaching facilities; lecture theatres and seminar spaces; research laboratories; a new Arts and Creative Industry (ACI) teaching facility, as well as the relocation of the current ACI facilities; an improved Academy of Sport Facilities to meet Sport England standards; and a new façade and roof.

The SGQTR comprises a seven-storey Learning Centre and a five-storey Creative Design Centre with a new concourse between the new buildings, which also links in with the existing LRB. This concourse will act as a community and student “front door” to the Southwark Campus, allowing 24/7 access and improved connectivity. The building will provide and accommodate: a library with a state-of-the-art automated book retrieval system; the façade retention of an existing Grade II listed chapel; new lecture theatres, teaching and learning academic spaces; new lounge and study areas; flexible adaptable conference spaces; and a gallery, cafés and retail spaces.
