Try a polarizer. Works best if the sun is perpendicular to what you're shooting. But not that it's will not make an overcast sky blue.

I used a polarizer on a autumn sky. It was slightly dim, can't see the sun. Is that what you call an overcast sky? I could see some noticeable difference in the colour of the sky after turning the polarizer, but the prints that I got show just a white sky, not even dim. Can anyone advise on this?
Does the polarizer makes the sky blue and not the clouds?

First, you need to find a blue sky.
Polarizor just increases the contrast between the sky and clouds and increases apparent saturation. It can't turn a non blue sky blue.

If sun is behind you and the building is in sunlight and the sky behind is blue, you can just meter the building and take the shot. Metering the sky would give a similar effect as well because in this case, the sky would only be slightly brighter than the building.
