Educational Facility Relocations

If you are planning to relocate a school, university or other educational facility, there is likely to be a large number of people and parts to shift.  

Whether a relocation is considered small, simple or complex, every item of furniture and equipment needs to be mapped from its current location to the new location.  

From experience working with other education institutions, we understand that you are constrained by a structured calendar to deliver the curriculum and/or research commitments.  

Factors that need considering in the detailed planning phase can include whether the item requires any specific services such as power, water or gas, security and transport limitations (e.g. disassembly, packing and reassembly). 

We work with you and your team to ensure every last document, piece of equipment, specimen, item and process is taken into account and relocated in a seamless manner so everything you need is ready on “go live” day.  

So get peace of mind and give us a call today to discuss your relocation project.
