WILLMOTT DIXON SECURES LONDON UNIVERSITY DEAL

 WILLMOTT DIXON SECURES LONDON UNIVERSITY DEAL

Willmott Dixon Interiors is to deliver a £39m refurbishment at London South Bank University’s (LSBU) London Road Building.

It extends the substantial presence that both Willmott Dixon’s construction and fit-out businesses have in the universities sector with over £250m of work currently being delivered or recently completed. 

This latest project will see Willmott Dixon Interiors transform LSBU’s London Road Building into a dedicated learning zone. It is a key part of its wider redevelopment project at its campus at Elephant and Castle which aims to consolidate the University’s position as a top London Modern University and building on awards for two successive years as University of the Year for Graduate employment (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide).

When complete, the new learning zone will create new and different ways of engaging students and supporting their learning needs. It will provide a state of the art library and learning resource facility as well as offering improved Academy of Sport facilities. 

Professor Paul Ivey, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Innovation) and Chief Business Officer at LSBU said: “The Wilkinson Eyre Architects design for London South Bank University’s ‘Learning Hub’ ensures our facilities, learning spaces, and technology remain fit for the future. This is a confident statement of intent from the LSBU group to build an educational presence in South London for the community of students, staff and other stakeholders recognising that modern, technologically driven, applied education connected to employers, is key to the future of so many.”

This latest project adds to Willmott Dixon Interiors’ growing London presence. Recently the company refurbished the grade two listed Dagenham Civic Centre to become Coventry University's new London Campus. It was also behind the creation of a new HQ for the Design Museum at the iconic former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington and the refurbishment of Old Admiralty Building which overlooks Horse Guards Parade for HM Government.
