Taberner House now on site

October 2018
Hub Group’s four-building high rise residential scheme in Croydon is now on site, with piling nearly completed and the ground floor of the first building started.

The Taberner House project reuses the 1960s basement of the local council building that once occupied the central Croydon site. Early works included a condition survey to establish the basement’s suitability, and the geotechnical design, which we delivered in collaboration with our colleagues at Wood Thilsted, had to take existing piles and pile caps into account. Reuse of the basement structure is saving on costs and the need for new materials.

Taberner House

The four concrete frame towers share a lightweight super-efficient structural design, based on a uniform grid layout and shared approach to construction. The architect is Alford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) and the project is due for completion in 2019.
