The 500-unit scheme by Hub Group, with architect AHMM, will include apartments for private sale, build-to-rent, shared ownership and affordable rental accommodation, as well as retail and commercial space.
The site was once home to the Croydon local council building, also called Taberner House, adjacent to the popular Queen’s Gardens, which will be regenerated by landscape consultants Grant Associates as part of the project. Among the challenges the site presents is an existing two-storey basement, which will be retained, and a number of large in situ under-reamed piles.
As well as the structural design, Whitby Wood is also providing geotechnical and civil engineering. The development of an optimised construction programme is key to achieving the project’s strict cost profile.
