Relocate Loughborough University's Pilkington Library
Our key tasks
Sequential packing of over 5,000 linear metres of journals, books and specialist collections
Packing and decanting of the library stock for offsite storage during refurbishment works
Interfiling in order to bring collections together.
While working at Loughborough University with the reorganisation and relocation of over 450 staff from their iconic Hazelrigg and Rutland buildings, BCL was awarded the contract to relocate the Pilkington Library at Loughborough University. The Pilkington Library move involved the sequential packing of over 5,000 linear metres of journals, books and specialist collections and interfiling to bring collections together on their replacement in the refurbished library.
Project management and planning was the key to success
The move was project managed throughout, and was a more demanding library move than normal. This was due to needing for interfiling in order to bring collections together.
The move involved the packing and decanting of the library stock for offsite storage, while refurbishment works were undertaken during the summer period.
Following a 13 week refurbishment program, the library stock was sequentially returned, unpacked onto shelves with interfiled stock, in line with the new library layout.
PETER UPTON, PROJECT MANAGER, FACILITIES MANAGEMENT
"I was at a meeting of the Library’s Building Development Group yesterday and they asked me to thank you and the other BCL staff involved in the contract for the way you have worked with them during the refurbishment works.
The project has been very challenging for all involved but both the Library and ourselves have found you to be very responsive to our requests and requirements throughout the project.
Thank you once again".

Made a difficult job that bit easier
Just want to pass on our thanks to you, for putting up with all our demands and letting us store some leftover items at Phoenix.
If you could pass on our thanks as well to all the guys from BCL who helped with the move. They were extremely helpful, struggling for hours with some of the dodgy old shelving we had, along with moving the crates from one point to another so we could unpack them with ease. They were really helpful & they made a difficult job that bit easier.Central LibraryManchester
