Corporate Relocations

Over the past twenty years or more, we have developed a stellar reputation assisting a number of domestic and multi-national corporates relocate smoothly.

As specialist corporate office relocation project managers, we offer customised services for corporates across New Zealand and Australia.

Our comprehensive relocation project management methodology ensures your transition to a new location is seamless, with minimal disruption or downtime.  Everything you need on go live day in the new premise is accounted for and the people have the right knowledge to locate something whenever they need to.  As you may have heard “everything has its place, everything is in its place” and we are the team that gets everything from A to B.

With over two decades helping companies move, we understand the stress and overwhelm that a complex move can place on both key stakeholders, as well as employees.

Our unique ability to provide specialist corporate and commercial relocation project management sets B&W Consulting apart. You can count on us to work with you and your team, providing comprehensive yet easy to understand documentation that takes into account even the most minute detail (milk in the fridge is guaranteed!).  We bring calm and peace of mind to what can be a chaotic time for all involved.

If you have a corporate office or commercial relocation in the pipeline, get in touch as early as possible and we will be there to support and advise throughout the planning (and moving) process.
