Bernard Weatherill House is a municipal facility in Croydon, London. The building, which is located just south of Croydon Town Hall, provides accommodation for many of the offices of Croydon London Borough Council.

History[edit]

The building was commissioned by Croydon London Borough Council to replace the aging Taberner House.[1] The new building, which was designed by EPR Architects and built by AELTC at a cost of £107 million, was completed in May 2013.[2] Croydon Council established a new Public Services Delivery Hub ('PSDH') within the new building in September 2013.[3] The new building, named Bernard Weatherill House after Bernard Weatherill, the late former local MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, is 12 storeys in its highest section.[4]
