We were extremely proud to be appointed by Mace to carry out the full design, supply & installation joinery package on LSE’s Centre Buildings Redevelopment which is their largest ever redevelopment involving the construction of connected 13-storey & 6-storey towers at the LSE’s Aldwych campus. The facility includes lecture theatres, study areas, staff offices, a café/learning commons area & a series of landscaped roof terraces. The Project was very successful all round and LSE the Client were very pleased with the finish and proud of the joinery element in their new flagship building.
Our scope included bespoke veneered timber, laminated & metal door sets with ironmongery. Timber skirtings, bespoke acoustic veneered balustrading to the staircases. Class O timber wall linings, soffit panels, column casings & tables to the lecture theatres & seminar rooms. Timber Inline parquet flooring, diminishing strips & nosing’s. Servery bar, laminated acoustic reflector panels to the atrium & auditorium inc a demountable stage. Back painted glass wall linings & writable walls, sliding writable screen & Acrovyn lift reveals. IPS panels to WC’s & accessible showers, integral benches, cubicle, vanity tops, mirrors & WC fittings.

With the completion of the LSE Centre Buildings Project, I write to express the LSE’s thanks for the high quality of your works on the successful outcome of the project. With the completion of the building and our occupation, I wanted to write to offer our thanks to what has turned out to be an exceptional delivery and a high-quality project that both Mace and SJ Eastern should be extremely proud of. The feedback from colleagues in the LSE is very positive and highly complimentary from all the buildings departments, staff and students.
