Moving is disruptive and especially so when it involves your office. You not only have the stress of making sure that all the “moving parts” are in sync but also need to keep your business running efficiently during this time. The solution? Hire a move project manager like The Organizing Zone to oversee all aspects of the move…large and small. This is exactly what happened with the move detailed in the following case study.
The CEO of a NYC-based beauty company decided that the company should move to smaller quarters as they no longer needed all their current office space. It would not only be more efficient from an operational standpoint but also provide a more cohesive environment for the team. As the CEO was traveling extensively, she needed a project manager to oversee all facets of this move and hired my company.
As I had overseen this client’s move into her current space, I was familiar with both the office and building which was an advantage as the initial window for completing this move was originally a little more than a month from the start date. I started by creating a timeline for the project which included decluttering the office, selecting a mover, working with the interior designer on the furniture layout, and coordinating with the IT consultant and other service providers. As the new office was less than half the size, the challenge was to maximize the storage space while providing ample work spaces for the current staff as well as future hires.
Due to the accelerated schedule at the start of this project, the majority of move preparation tasks were completed well in advance of the actual move date. This created less havoc for my client as the move date approached. I was on site on move day and oversaw all aspects of the process coordinating with the mover’s foreman, interior designer, building and IT consultant to make sure that all went smoothly.
With a minimum of disruption to its daily operation, my client was efficiently relocated to its new office on Friday night and the team was back to work on Monday morning. The company was poised for its next phase of growth in a space that was better suited to its current and future business needs.
