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.

Looked complicated but dealt with very quickly and effectively

As usual your guys have provided an excellent move which looked complicated but dealt with very quickly and effectively. Have a good weekend and pass my thanks on to Jamie and the team for an excellent move and I hope the guy who got stuck in the lift has recovered. LOL

The overall service provided by your company has been excellent value

I wouldn’t normally get involved directly in providing feedback on performance of our contractors, but feel I must commend the excellent service that we have received from your team in moving us to our new office on Hagley Road and the clearance of Calthorpe Road.

The team were both efficient in their work and extremely well-mannered. Three days ago I couldn’t have imagined sitting here now in a functioning office with our old office completely clear of the clutter that had built up over 20 years. Please extend my thanks to them.

I feel that the overall service provided by your company has been excellent value and I would not hesitate to recommend you in the future.
