The Centre Building at the LSE wins Civic Trust Award
The Centre Building at The London School of Economics has won a prestigious Civic Trust Award.
To win the award, schemes had to ‘demonstrate excellence in architecture or design, whilst being sustainable, accessible and providing a positive civic contribution’.
The Centre Building is pre-dominantly naturally ventilated achieved and BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, largely due to a 30 per cent reduction in embodied carbon.
Civic Trust Award judges praised the scheme, which was led by architects RSH+P and included Mace, AKT II, Gillespies and Max Fordham, as ‘a building designed for people’.
The LSE has chosen to partner with chapmanbdsp for MEP and environmental consultancy on its last three major projects - the Saw Swee Hock, Centre Building and 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields - in a relationship spanning more than a decade.
