New Government Hub for Croydon

New Government Hub for Croydon

A new government hub in Croydon has achieved Practical Completion.

The building is set to accommodate over 5,000 civil servants and enable the Home Office to migrate from three current locations in Croydon to one building building in summer 2024.

Following the completion of Cat A construction, funded by Pensions Insurance Corporation (PIC) and developed by Stanhope in partnership with Schroders and Lendlease, the Government Property Agency (GPA) will now take on the lease and work in partnership with Wates Smartspace, to fit out and complete the building to the Government Workplace Design Standards.

The building will be sustainable, with fully decarbonised power and all electricity procured from renewable sources.

Clive Anderson, Director of Capital Projects at the GPA said: “Today marks the end of three years of hard work by the integrated delivery team, led by the GPA in partnership with PIC, Stanhope, Schroders, Lendlease and their excellent supply chain, who have designed and built this extraordinary building to meet the Home Office needs . I am delighted with the CAT A base build completion earlier than planned ready for the GPA to complete for our Home Office customers in late summer 2024.”

Home Office Permanent Secretary Matthew Rycroft said: “This is an exciting step towards the completion of the new Home Office Croydon Hub. The site will play a major role in our work to keep the country safe, secure and prosperous. It will provide a modern space that is sustainable and which offers a collaborative and enjoyable working environment.

“I would like to thank all those who are working hard to make this innovative building a reality. I very much look forward to its completion next year.”
