Muse is Lambeth Council’s selected partner for a project which comprises a new 120,000 sq ft civic office and customer service centre, the refurbishment of a Grade II listed town hall, new public realm and 120 new homes.
The project will reduce the Council's core office buildings from 14 to two, saving at least £4.5m a year. It will also create new jobs and homes and free up space in the town hall for business and community use.
