Cooley LLP is a Global Law Firm, partnering with clients in circumstances where ‘innovation meets the law’, including transformative deals, complex IP, regulatory matters, and high-stakes litigation. The triumphant company runs 18 offices internationally, employing over 1,400 lawyers.
Renovo was assigned significant tasks by Cooley LLP for their London headquarters, involving the transfer of a workforce of 350 individuals to the recently fitted-out office space at the prestigious 22 Bishopsgate, London. This ambitious project was not only completed successfully but delivered earlier than initially agreed!
The scope of the required services encompassed an array of tasks, each aimed at facilitating a seamless transition for our client. These services included a complete packing service, the deployment of cutting-edge IT equipment, and the intricate process of relocating all the departments. Upon the relocation’s finalisation, Renovo was responsible for the clearance of all redundant furniture from the newly occupied space. This was completed efficiently and precisely, ensuring compliance with the handover requirements and addressing all the expectations and regulations enforced by the Landlord. The furniture was removed with a commitment to transparency between Renovo and Cooley. Audits were carefully performed, documented, and then reported back to the client, establishing an unassailable level of trust in our partnership.
Due to several changes in Cooley’s work practices, which were dictated by COVID lockdowns, Renovo was asked to adapt our methodology as Cooley staff were absent from the office throughout the relocation project. Meaning it was vitally important to the project team, and its stakeholders, that a robust communication protocol was shown, highlighting key milestones within the project were upheld.
Cooley’s were heavily invested with their new workplace, insuring maximum impact and positive welcome on the staff on arrival at their new space. Renovo played a major part in ensuring that all the relocation items weren’t only moved but unpacked into staff coverage lockers on their behalf. This meant that when the staff arrived in their new space, they were presented with a clean and tidy workspace with no unpacking required. This provided an impressive first impression that Cooley had highly anticipated their staff to experience.
Upon reflection of the project’s success, Renovo’s Sales Director, Danny Rutter, said ‘Renovo was thrilled to be involved in this project with such an ambitious client. It was a true privilege to be involved with one of the first moves into what has now grown into a landmark building in London.’
