Project Summary

Complete refurbishment of 120,000 sq-ft Police station, in 3 phases whilst in occupation. Key to the project was to maintain all services whilst the custody suites and office areas remain occupied. Refurbishment including all new mechanical and electrical installations, new raised floors, IT, security, lifts, raised floors, ceiling, joinery, toilets together with renovation of roof, windows, doors, repair and replacement of render and external redecoration. New air-conditioning plant was installed at the ground floor with the creation of a plant enclosure in the central courtyard as a solution because we were not allowed to use cranes to lift plant.

I rate Overbury over all other contractors I’ve worked with.  Your biggest strength is you, you just get things done.  There are no issued and nothing was ever too much trouble.  Your team are really approachable.

What a pleasure it has been to work with John Dryden and his team over the last year as he has overseen the transformation of Charing Cross Police Station into a fantastic building that is a fit HQ for frontline policing in central and west London.
