LSE Centre Building shortlisted for BREEAM award
The London School of Economics (LSE) Centre Building has been shortlisted for a BREEAM award.
The project has been named a finalist in the 'Public Sector Project - Post Construction Award' category along with four other projects.
The Centre Building, which is pre-dominantly naturally ventilated, achieved a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating.
The award winners will be announced at a ceremony in March.
Building services and environmental design consultancy, chapmanbdsp, has provided the LSE with MEP and environmental consultancy on its last three major projects, a relationship spanning more than a decade.
On each of these buildings – the Saw Swee Hock, Centre Building and 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields - the LSE has invested in a fully integrated design approach.
This involves the whole project team taking environmental engineering to the heart of the design process from the outset, with the aim of ensuring the building performs as well as possible in terms of energy and comfort.
The Centre Building project was led by architect RSH+P, in collaboration with Mace, Max Fordham, AKT II, Dornan Engineering, Deloitte and others.
