Overbury is celebrating after receiving five awards for its industry-leading approach to construction in Cambridgeshire and the East of England.

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 four Silver certificates for demonstrating the highest levels of consideration and care for the community, the environment and the workforce, at refurbishment projects in Cambridge and Ipswich completed in 2019.

The winning projects include:

  • Eversheds Sutherland, 50/50 Station Road, Cambridge
  • Eversheds Sutherland, 159 Princes Street, Ipswich
  • GEANT, 126 -130 Hills Road, Cambridge
  • Hive, 50/60 Station Road, Cambridge
  • Global pharmaceutical company, Cambridge

Overbury has received four awards for the delivery of impressive refurbishment projects in Cambridge on behalf of clients including a global pharmaceutical firm and telecommunications service provider, GEANT.

The contractor 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 was also recognised for a further Eversheds Sutherland project in Ipswich town centre, and two additional Silver awards for projects completed on behalf of the University of Birmingham and Alzheimer’s Society in Birmingham.

Andrew Wood, managing director of Overbury’s Central England 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.
