Project scope

Relocate Shropshire Council

Our key tasks

  • 1,200 staff moved
  • Temporary double moves of staff
  • Sequential file packing and unpacking
  • File audits and mapping
  • Confidential files sequentially packed and sealed

When Shropshire Council replaced their two-tier local government structure, roughly 1,200 staff needed to move within buildings and between locations across the county. Some of these moves were temporary double moves and included sometimes conflicting and sensitive needs in terms of continuing service delivery.

Our project management working hand-in-hand with the client

We believe in working closely with our clients, so they have their needs met and if changes to the plan need to be made, they can be done quickly and with little disruption. We asked the council to create a move communications team, made up of a core project team and a group of move champions from each department. We provided a dedicated project manager and helpline to provide constant support throughout the move process.

Confidential security and minimal disruption

In addition to sequential file packing and unpacking, file audits and mapping, our packers also packed (sequentially) several thousand metres of confidential filing into filing crates. They were sealed with a one-way cable tie with a unique serial number.

Where possible, we moved storage cabinets fully intact to their new location mechanically, saving the time and disruption of unpacking and re-packing the cabinets.

They worked efficiently, methodically and effectively

Email to Piers
Just wanted to drop a short note to express my thanks to you and the team for supporting our move yesterday.

Both of your colleagues were a credit to your organisation. Both performed their duties with absolute professionalism. From the first point of contact, through the packaging, removal and unpacking, they worked efficiently, methodically and effectively. They were able to pack and transfer a considerable amount of (in some cases) high value assets without a single incident. The right people in the right place at the right time. Thank you.

Kind regards

Andrew

Greg managed the move really smoothly

Just getting a moment now to say a huge thank you to you and your team.

Greg managed the move really smoothly and him and the team were always willing to help resolve problems and go above and beyond. Feedback from staff now residing in new location is also good.
