The Client and Commission

The new Global Centre for Social Sciences (GCSS) is an exciting project in the heart of the London School of Economics campus. It will transform the campus visually and will replace several key buildings that currently lower the overall aesthetic of the area.

Blue Sky Building is pleased to have been commissioned to provide independent best practice construction advice on this prestigious project, working alongside a world class team.
