Seven industry awards for specialist firm

Overbury’s Birmingham office is celebrating after receiving seven awards for its industry-leading approach to construction.

The fit out and refurbishment specialist has been recognised for delivering some of the highest performing construction sites in the UK and Ireland at this year’s Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards.

Overbury was awarded a Bronze and six Silver certificates for demonstrating the highest levels of consideration and care for the community, the environment and the workforce, at refurbishment projects in Birmingham, Ipswich and Cambridge completed in 2019.

The winning projects include:

Overbury has received four awards for the delivery of impressive refurbishment projects in Cambridge, on behalf of clients including telecommunications service provider, GEANT and a global pharmaceutical firm. The contractor also picked up Silver and Bronze awards for a brace of tenant fit outs in the same nine-storey Cambridge city centre building. The projects for global law practice, Eversheds Sutherland and Centrica, the company behind Hive smart devices, were both delivered at the multi-tenanted 50/60 Station Road.

Overbury won Silver for the significant ground floor refit and refurbishment of the Institute of Biomedical Research (IBR) at the University of Birmingham. The project delivered a modern, vibrant ground floor facility in keeping with the IBR’s status as a nationally renowned medical research centre.

The firm was presented with a further Silver award by CCS for its completion of a new dementia-friendly office for Alzheimer’s Society in Birmingham. Overbury’s design and fit out of the 7,250 sq ft office space was created to facilitate neurodiversity in the workplace and was influenced by people affected by dementia and academics from the University of Stirling.

Andrew Wood, managing director of Overbury’s Birmingham-based office/team, said: “I am extremely proud that so many of our construction schemes have been recognised at this year’s CCS National Site Awards. We work extremely hard to ensure that our fit out and refurbishment projects are delivered safely and responsibly and respect both the needs of our clients and the community. These awards are testament to the excellence of our project managers and the dedicated team members that support them.”

CCS chief executive, Amanda Long, said: “Achieving any level of CCS National Site Award requires dedication, effort and commitment to raising standards of considerate construction and we are delighted that many CCS-registered sites have achieved the exceptional level of performance in order to receive a National Site Award this year.”

The CCS is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image. Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to abide by a code of considerate practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
