Fit-out specialist Overbury will deliver a major building refurbishment project as part of Coventry University’s £60m investment in health and life sciences.

The project to transform the 100,000 sq ft Crossman building in the University’s new health and life sciences quadrant is the company’s largest higher education project in the region, having previously worked with University of Warwick, University of Birmingham and Aston University.

Account manager David Johnson said: “This is part of a major investment by the university in its health and life sciences offer and the refurbished building will complement a new-build which is currently under construction next door.

“This is a 12-month project which we will be carrying out over seven phases where we will be creating some highly-specialised teaching and research facilities whilst ensuring the building remains operational throughout so it is quite a complex Rubik’s Cube of a project.”

Overall, the university is investing £300m across the entire campus in new infrastructure and research and teaching facilities over the next 10 years.
