Prater delivering roofing package to LSE

Prater is delivering a complete roofing package for the Centre Buildings of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

The project, which is designed by Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners and is being constructed by Mace, is part of a £120m redevelopment programme and is due for completion in April 2019.

The largest construction project LSE has commissioned in its 120-year history, the Centre Buildings, which are situated at the heart of the LSE campus, will include academic and research suites alongside teaching and social interaction spaces.

Work is already underway and Prater’s scope of works includes installing inverted waterproofing systems to all terraces and roof levels. In addition, a number of finishes including Moordale Paving, and both green and brown roofing will help the building to achieve its requirement for a clear sustainable focus.

As part of the roofing package, Prater will also provide a variety of bespoke planter systems for a number of terrace levels.

Russell Green, Senior Project Manager at Prater said:

“We are delighted to be delivering a complete roofing package to one of the world’s leading universities. Having now arrived on site, we are looking forward to bringing our experience in providing sustainable solutions to this great project.”
