Description of The Marshall Building

The Marshall Building development at 44 Lincoln's Inn Fields in London WC2.

The new building will house a number of academic and research departments including the Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship.

Paul Marshall is a major benefactor of the School and the Marshall Institute will make its permanent home in the new building at 44 Lincoln's Inn Fields which will take his name.

In 2015, LSE shortlisted the following architects to design the new building: Penoyre & Prasad, AL_A, David Chipperfield Architects, Grafton Architects, Herzog & de Meuron Architects, Niall McLaughlin Architects and Scott Brownrigg. The winning team will be announced in April 2016.

Paul Marshall Building was purchased by LSE in 2013 from Cancer Research UK (CRUK) who remain in occupation until their move to the new Francis Crick Institute in 2017.

Mace has started work on the construction of the Marshall Building, the latest addition to LSE's central London campus.

Demolition of the existing structure at 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, the former home of Cancer Research UK, has been completed by McGee Demolition.

Mace has now taken control of the site and will be working over the next two and a half years to deliver a new landmark academic facility for the university. The project is expected to be completed in 2021.

Mace has been working with LSE over the last four years on the construction of the Centre Buildings Redevelopment, which is due to complete later this year and will be open for students in time for the beginning of the 2019/20 academic year.

Kenneth Kinsella, Director of Capital Development for LSE, commented:
“This is a real milestone for the project, and we look forward to working with Mace over the next two years to turn our plans for the Marshall Building into reality. The demolition of the existing buildings has gone very well, and our success to date is a reflection of all of the hard work put into the project so far by the entire team.”

Terry Spraggett, Managing Director of Public Sector Construction for Mace, added:

“Over the last four years we have built a fantastic working relationship with LSE, first with the redevelopment of the Centre Buildings and now with the Marshall Building. They are a fantastic client, always pushing us to be more ambitious; and we are extremely pleased that they have chosen Mace to deliver the second phase of this very important project. The Marshall Building will be an iconic addition to the LSE’s campus, and we have been working closely with the architects, Grafton, to bring this ground-breaking design to life.”
