Relocation of head quarters – CMA

Client: Competition & Markets Authority
Sector: Business relocation


Relocation of the CMA HQ offices in London. The project involved moving staff and their key assets from the existing site at Southampton Row, London to newly fitted out offices at Canary Wharf, London. The move was completed over two core phases with a legacy asset clearance following.

The overall programme scope and key deliverables were as follows:

  • Relocation of 1000 staff over two core move weekends of approx. 500 x staff per weekend
  • The key deliverables and client assets relocated included:
    • Identified furniture/related assets – chairs, safes, fireproof cabinets
    • Identified existing desktop IT (incl full decommission and recommission)
    • Packing/unpacking of approx. 2000LM of filing and related material
    • Relocation of staff personal effects
    • Completion of a series of highly sensitive ‘secure moves’ involving the relocation of highly confidential case files and related paperwork. For these specific moves we deployed staff with the highest levels of security clearance. The process for these secure moves involved our team packing/unpacking all material in sequential order into secure crates, creation of an inventory for all files packed, multiple route planning to avoid delays delivering the crates to Cabot Square and CAN Security personnel travelling with our team in the relocation vehicle.
  • Provision of a clean sweep service at following the move/clearance to ensure there is no abandoned filing or equipment at the exit locations. Items found in drawers, closets, cupboards or other areas will be bagged and tagged and taken to an agreed holding area for assessment/inspection by CMA staff.
  • Disposal of Legacy Assets following the move, we delivered a full and comprehensive clearance of all legacy assets (furniture, IT etc) from the exit site. All items were either recycled or repurposed via our Refresh Asset Repurposing Scheme with 100% landfill diversion achieved in line with our ISO14001 accreditation.
  • Provision of all labour resources, materials, and vehicles to deliver the core/main relocation and clearance works.
  • Provision of pre and post move support to assist CMA staff with packing/unpacking etc.
