- Project & Move Management
Successful relocation depends on regular and accurate communication at all times throughout the process. From the initial appointment of a Contractor to Final Project Sign Off, when engaging one of our Members as your Project or Move Manager you can be assured of constant updates and feedback at every important milestone of your move.
Space planning is a fundamental element of the relocation process starting with an in-depth analysis of how the space is to be used.
CMG Members can provide you with an experienced designer who will draw up a plan defining certain zones of space, taking into account the activities that will take place in those zones.
The space plan will also define circulation patterns that show how people will move through the space, and will be finished by adding details of all the furniture, equipment and hardware placement with specific numbering to assist easy identification during your relocation.
Relocating, churning, refurbishing or restructuring are ideal times to consider a full audit of your filing.
A filing audit will determine a detailed quantification and qualification of company documentation by media type, conditions and utility.
Ideally the end result of a filing audit will be to highlight any inactive documentation in the office environment which will enable your CMG Member to make recommendations of action to make better use of your space
Your CMG Member can carry out a simple audit based on desk layout and usage to a fully detailed audit including every item of furniture from Seating to Storage complete with photographic references if required.
All CMG Members can supply specialist IT services ranging from straightforward internal moves and changes, to full server relocations.
Their professional approach to the operation will ensure that all IT equipment will be handled correctly, moved safely and fully protected, and will arrive at its destination on schedule and ready for recommissioning and continued use.
Your chosen CMG Member will assess how many removal crates you will require to effectively relocate the contents of your office including desk contents and filing.
All crates will be delivered as per the Move Schedule, transferred to their new locations and collected on an agreed date. The CMG Member will provide you with an ongoing check on outstanding crates to ensure that you are aware of any additional charges for late returns.
Filing systems are essential to the continued trading and operating of many office environments, and the need for immediate access to important files upon relocation is often an important requirement for many businesses, thus ensuring they can continue to trade with no downtime.
CMG Staff have been trained in the relocation of filing in a sequential manner to ensure that all paperwork and filing is placed in the exact same position as that before it was moved, or as required by the client.
It’s often advisable (if possible) for filing relocations to be carried out as a ‘pre move’ exercise so as not to hinder the physical relocation of your office.
Every CMG Member will advise you on the best method of disposal of your redundant furniture or IT equipment. This could be either to re-sell or recycle, with the main aim being to reduce or completely negate the chance of it being sent to landfill.
Once collected and responsibly recycled or resold your CMG Member will provide you with a certificate measuring your particular project against good practice standards.
- Confidential Waste Disposal
Commercial Moving Group Members are required to have an Environmental and Waste Disposal Policy in place, with many of them certified to BS EN 15713 the European Standard for Secure Destruction of Confidential Material
The additional knowledge and health and safety requirements for Factory moves, including in depth Risk Assessments and Method Statements along with specialist equipment and highly trained staff, ensures that heavy and difficult pieces of machinery are moved with ease, but under strictly controlled and monitored conditions.
From a small reference library to that of a major university, both of which could include the dismantling and rebuilding of shelving, a CMG Member company will ensure that the move is planned to perfection in order to maintain book sequence or in some cases the need to integrate or merge collections.
The key to a successful Laboratory move is in having a full understanding of the hazards involved, along with knowledge of the sensitive nature of the equipment to be moved.
Specially trained staff will be deployed throughout the project to carry out all packing and preparation for moving, and thorough method statements and risk assessment will be put in place beforehand.
