London School of Economics & Political Science
LSE The Marshall Building
The building was purchased by LSE from Cancer Research UK (CRUK) in 2013 as a purpose built and designed laboratory building bounded by two listed buildings, the Royal College of Surgeons and the “Old Curiosity Shop”. The current building comprises eight storeys and three basements.
Paul Marshall is part funding the redevelopment (including demolition of existing building) and construction of a new building that will house the Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship incorporating teaching, academic research and sports facilities. It is proposed that the upper floors of the PMB will house the following academic departments and related research centres; Department of Management, Department of Accounting, Department of Finance, Financial Markets Group and Systemic Risk Centre
They will be brought together for the first time into one building. This will enable the departments to grow and to develop stronger interrelationships and collaborations for staff and students while also benefiting from state of the art teaching facilities in a welcoming environment.
This unique world class facility was selected by an architectural competition which was won by Grafton Architects in conjunction with AKTII and CBDSP.
Under a joint venture agreement with G&T, 3PM were appointed by the London School of Economics and Political Sciences (LSE) for the redevelopment of 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields as Consultant Project Managers, Project Co-Ordinators & Contract Administrators for this project.
3PM managed the programme to mitigate the key risks in the development of this technically complex building. We were able to create sufficient time to adopt a hybrid 2 stage design & build approach following a fully collaborative market engagement exercise.
We also instigated a full contamination assurance regime to enable the handover from the CRUK to deliver a fully independently certified “clean” facility in accordance with the vacant possession deadlines.
