Overbury scoops £30m Canada House refurb

The Canadian High Commission has chosen Overbury as contractor for the £30m refurb of Canada House on Trafalgar Square.

The project, expected to be completed by 30 November 2014, will see Canada House refurbished and connected to the adjacent building at 2-4 Cockspur Street, which will also be upgraded.

The linked buildings will house all the Canadian High Commission activities in the UK.

First acquired by the government of Canada in 1923, Canada House on Trafalgar Square is Canada’s diplomatic home in the UK and will be joined with 2-4 Cockspur, which was constructed between 1926-29 by a Canadian firm and recently acquired by the Canadian government.

Overbury, which is the fit-out arm of Morgan Sindall, had been up against Bam Construct, Chorus and Como, according to construction intelligence provider Glenigan.
