Overbury helps Land Registry move to new home

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Overbury helps Land Registry move to new homeOverbury has completed the office fit out contract for the new home of Land Registry in Nottingham.

Land Registry - the government agency created in 1862 to register the ownership of land and property in England and Wales – has moved to a new regional headquarters at Castle Wharf House in the city centre’s Southside business district. The 14-week project involved 37,900 sq ft of Grade A space over three floors within the 1990s office building in the heart of the canal conservation area.

Around 400 members of staff, who help to keep and maintain the Land Register where more than 23 million titles – the evidence of ownership – are documented, have recently moved to the offices.

Account manager Michele Clifton, at Birmingham-based Overbury, said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for Overbury to work alongside Land Registry to create a wonderful workspace for its 400 employees in a landmark building.

“The project created an efficient and productive environment over three floors of open plan office space with breakout space and local glass fronted meeting areas. One interesting aspect is the provision of showers, installed in the basement, which encourage people to cycle to work and not rely on their cars or public transport.”

The Land Registry is part of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and also a member of the Public Data Group within BIS. Newly appointed Chief Land Registrar and Chief Executive Ed Lester is responsible to Secretary of State Vince Cable and Minister Michael Fallon. It has 14 regional offices including Castle Wharf House in Nottingham.

Pete Downes, Senior Property Asset Partner at Land Registry, said: “We are delighted with the refit and staff have commented enthusiastically on the improved facilities. This was the first time we’ve worked with Overbury who provided a professional service which meant the project was completed on time and to budget.”
