Fire Protection installed a kitchen and dedicated smoke extract system within the newly refurbished Public Trustees building at the London School of Economics (LSE). Built in 1915, the building, located in Kingsway, has been refurbished internally while still retaining the building's historic facades.

The newly refurbished LSE building features sixteen seminar rooms, four lecture theatres (including a 400-seat theatre), an Internet café, five floors of office accommodation and two IT teaching rooms, providing an enhanced learning environment for LSE's students.

Fire Protection was employed by Briggs & Forrester Ltd to undertake the installation of the kitchen extract and dedicated smoke extract system due to the specialist experience gained on other high-profile refurbishment projects, such as the kitchen refurbishment at the House of Lords. Fire Protection Ltd provided a flexible solution, while meeting the highest standards of performance demanded by BS476, using its world renowned Flamebar BW11 system.

The refurbished LSE building was opened by The Queen on Wednesday 5th November 2008.
