Selected items were moved to a new office in Blackfriars, while others were placed into a storage facility in West Thurrock. Excess IT equipment was moved to other offices located in the Netherlands – each of these moves required detailed organisation to ensure everything gets to where they're meant to be.
One section of the project's management that we were heavily involved with, was the segregation of metals (from furniture deemed unusable), for suitable reuse. This is a key proponent of sustainability as it allows materials to be recycled, keeping them out of landfill – meaning that fewer metal parts will need to be produced. When done on a mass scale, it will make a huge positive impact on the environment.
Commencing in March 2021, the project saw two large openplan floors (with meeting and break-out facilities) fitted out. The main bulkof our facilities management contribution was to assist sustainableclearance and recycling of excess furniture – some items were re-purposed, somesold on, and some donated to local charities.
