This  project, delivered by Overbury, is a £89m strip out and refurbishment of the 380,000 sq ft. of space in 1 Embankment Place in Westminster, London. The building has a unique construction as it was erected 21 years ago above the existing Charing Cross Station. The refurbishment project involves a complete plant replacement scheme in the basement areas, roof and terraces, then fit out of the commercial office space on floors 1 to 9. The station is found between the building’s Ground floor entrance and the office space on Floors 1-9.

Overbury commenced on site in December 2011 and the project completion is scheduled for August 2013. The client remains partly in occupation of the building which means that a strategic, phased approach to the project is required to maintain the client’s business continuity throughout.

This is the second project for this particular client where ‘BREEAM Outstanding’ is a requirement. This means a number of interesting environmental features and initiatives can be viewed during the site visit, including biodiesel fuelled CHP Tri-Generation plant.

This visit should prove interesting to a variety of CIOB members, whether they are interested in the environmental aspects, structural  complexities or the challenges posed by carrying out such a project in an occupied building with minimal disruption to the client or the other interconnected tenants.
