Relocation of staff to new head quarters

Client: Tech giant
Sector: Office Relocation


This project saw the relocation of 2,600 staff from multiple existing buildings in London to the clients newly fitted out European HQ at Battersea Power Station (BPS).

The project was completed over 9 core consecutive move phases. The programme required the following key project deliverables:

  • Full decommissioning/recommissioing of desktop IT (incl Apple Macs)
  • Full pictorial IT audit to ensure IT set ups at existing locations where exactly mirrored at BPS
  • Relocation of staff personal effects (crates)
  • Packing/unpacking of approx. 2500LM of filing and related material
  • Completion of a series of secure moves alongside the main move programme – these secure moves involved the packing/relocation/unpacking of sensitive client assets and technology
  • Provision of a comprehensive pre and post move support programme – Post Move Support Teams included IT Engineers to manage any technical issues on staff members first day in the office.

Due to the comprehensive project planning we undertook with the client and the detailed Move Methodologies and RAMS we agreed as part of this process, we encountered zero technical IT issues following each move phase.

The move itself was challenging in terrns of the number of staff being relocated and the fact that the phasing was consecutive with limited time between phases. The entry site was also unusual in that the distances from the loading bay to the goods lifts was between 175-200 yards. We had to give very careful consideration to the correct level of labour resources to deploy in order to ensure vehicles were unloaded quickly and efficiently. With client assets being transferred to the new floors in order ensuring file unpacking, IT unpacking and IT recommissioning commenced on time, every time.

The project was delivered on time in line with agreed budgets.

Following successful completion of the BPS programme, the client agreed longer term arrangements with us for the delivery of BAU and Porterage workstreams across their UK estate.

We now undertake a mix of works at sites in London (x6), Edinburgh, Cambridge, Cheltenham, Slough and St Albans.
