The LCA Business School was founded in 2000, is part of Anglia Ruskin University and one of the UK’s top private sector higher education institutes. The refurbishment of the 5th floor of the Export Building at Republic, E14 was the fourth project in a series of refurbishments we managed for ARU over a period of c2.5 years. It was completed for the beginning of 2022.

The brief was to create an entirely new look and feel and to house circa 550 students. The fire strategy for the building dictated the occupancy rate and planning permission for additional louvres was needed to increase the amount of fresh air on the floor. We provided a high level brief and in partnership with an approved M&E consultant, a performance specification for the M&E. This information was used to run a negotiate with Maris who had won the tender for UoNL and were already working on the 6th floor of the Import Building..We subsequently, and with the Maris design team, specified and tendered a separate furniture package to ensure best value.

“ The Workspace Consultants were also our project manager for the LCA refubishment in East London. The project was managed efficiently from start to finish, they were involved throughout with the landlord, planners, main contractor and technical contractor. We did not have to deal with the third parties and were simply kept informed of progress and costs diering our weekly meetings with the Workspace Consultants.
We are very pleased with the outcome of all projects and thankful to The Workspace Consultants for completing them successfully. They acted professionally throughout and safeguarded out interests. The are project managers whom I can wholeheartedly recommend.”
