Tavistock Place update

Now more than ever the importance of research in global health is at the forefront of minds everywhere. The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine continues to lead the way in this field with fellow experts from all over the world. We also remain committed to ensuring our facilities meet the demands of this essential research.

We restarted construction works at our Tavistock Place site on Monday 1 June 2020.

The project

The project has been split into two separate packages of work: 

  1. Enabling works, which deals with the demolition of the existing buildings and internal alteration works (ie relocation of reception and a new internal stair) which has now been completed.
  2. Main works, which is for the construction of the new TP2 building, this commenced in February 2021 with our contractor 8Build and is due for completion in December 2022. 


We will continue to meet the requirements of Camden Council planning and  in particular our plan for managing the construction works via the Construction Management Plan (CMP). This is a key document to ensure we construct the building safely while minimising the impact on staff and the local community. The approved plan has been issued to our framework contractors who will adhere to its requirements. The CMP is a 'live' document and will be continually monitored in tandem with Camden Council and the community to ensure operations are streamlined to the benefit of the community and our students and staff.

Community Liaison Group (CLG) meetings are currently via video-link to ensure there is a continuing opportunity for local community representatives to scrutinise and monitor our construction methods.
