Future Thinking

Project Description

Future Thinking required a relocation partner to support the move of staff, IT equipment and some of their furniture from their existing location in Lavington Street, London to a serviced office space. They also required the move of servers and IT equipment to two of their regional offices in Oxford and High Wycombe. The move involved relocating 30 staff, desktop IT and servers, marketing materials, and personnel files. Renovo put together a proposal for the works along with options to support the disconnect and reconnect of the IT.

Our account manager attended a planning meeting to ensure that all preparations and planning was in place for the move and to offer advice to the client team. At this planning meeting we agreed on the final schedule.

Services Provided

Renovo were appointed to carry out the relocation and in doing so, agreed a program for the relocation which included timely provision of packing crates and labels for Future Thinking staff to pack up ready for the move.

The Renovo team were briefed on the requirements of the move. The move was carried out in two separate phases, with the move of servers and archives to High Wycombe and Oxford in the first weekend.

The relocation to the new serviced space was scheduled in phase 2 and to avoid disruption to the staff, all items were loaded in the evening.

All the desktop IT equipment was disconnected, moved by Renovo, carefully packed into purpose made crates, moved over and then delivered onto the destination desks.  The It was then set-up and reconnected by Renovo on the new desks.

Challenges Overcome

The time allowed for planning the relocation was quite short for a move of this size and complexity. Renovo were able to ensure that we were committed to make the move as smooth as possible and spent a lot of time with the client’s project team to fully understand what was required and to offer advice on how best to achieve this.

The new space was not available to move into on the same evening as the collection, so Renovo held the items overnight in our secure storage. The delivery and set-up took place early the following morning.

All works were completed on time and to budget.

Renovo were very accommodating and very easy to work with.  They took the brief and made it work.  Our moving experience felt effortless, thanks!

The removal chaps were friendly, nothing was too much trouble and above all they were professional.
