London PR Firm
Art + Office relocation
In early 2015, Edward Baden completed a complex project for a London based public relations firm, which comprised of a corporate office relocation, as well as the relocation of valuable artwork.
Prior to moving their full office inventory, the client required the safe relocation of 54 artworks of various sizes and values (ranging in value up to £2.5m). As well as the standard hanging framed artworks, the client required the relocation of a Harley Davidson Hydra Glide and an aircraft wing via stairs. Our project manager undertook several pre-move visits to ensure that the best possible preparation was in place, and to decide on the most economical way of transporting the artwork safely.
It was decided to produce bespoke polystyrene-lined plywood cases for the most valuable artworks. All artworks were export packed by our specialist fine art team, and transported via our air-ride suspension vehicle to the new site over a three day programme. The Harley Davidson and aircraft wing were transported by our heavy division using machine skates, a stairclimber and specially designed ramps.
At the new site we provided a hanging team which rehung all artwork in the designated positions, using a scaffold tower where necessary.
The office relocation involved the relocation of 280 staff members from 5 floors to the client’s new office site over a two day weekend programme.
Specialist fitters were deployed to carry out dismantling and reassembling of furniture. IT packers were assigned to carry out specialist packing of PCs and associated equipment using Edward Baden’s IT crates and packaging materials, in line with our strict packaging methodology.
Both parts of the relocation were completed successfully and within the required timescales. So please contact us or call us on 0800 169 5309.
