London Business School

The comprehensive structural upgrade, refurbishment and new build extensions to the former Marylebone Town Hall (Council House and Annex buildings), forming a new state-of-the-art campus for London Business School. Both buildings were remodelled internally to create study space, seminar rooms, lecture theatres, libraries, offices and rest facilities.

This included the major refurbishment and refreshing of existing heritage finishes and complex integration of new state-of-the-art services installed throughout.

  • £73m Value
  • 141 weeks Build
  • Competitive tender Procurement

Significant structural alterations were required to enable incorporation of 11 new lifts and the construction of a glazed link building between the Council House (5 levels) and Annex (7 levels).

To manage the integration of new services across new build and the Grade II Listed elements, we engaged Wates Building Services, our in-house MEP engineer and management team, to work alongside the services consultant. This ensured an integrated design and installation solution was implemented, providing greater cost certainty and transparency from preconstruction to project completion.
