Director of Fox Lloyd Jones and Project Manager for the scheme Gavin Beevers, said:
“The internal fit out scheme designed by Strive and MRB will deliver an outstanding business environment and we are delighted to welcome Overbury to be a key part of the delivery.
The external transformation of the building is already looking very dramatic and we feel the internal works will be equally impressive on completion”

“Walker Morris and their consultant team have carefully taken their time to engineer and design a stunning and highly engaging environment for their internal teams and clients at 33 Wellington Place.
Overbury are delighted to be delivering this high quality scheme that will set a benchmark fit-out for the region and support the client in their continued success over the years to come”
