The Project

E2Open requested an IT office removals from its current position in Winnersh Triangle Business Park to the new premises on the 14th floor of the Blue Tower located in Media City UK, Salford. 

E2Open requested an IT office removals from Winnersh Triangle Business Park to the 14th floor of the Blue Tower, MediaCityUK.

Cube Relocations seamlessly transported all staff, furniture, electronic devices, and equipment into the new building. Via our sister company, Cube Self Storage, we also provided 300 sqft of self-storage service for E2Open’s collection of items.

The move was a two-day midweek programme during normal working hours.

The Solution

The main objective of Cube Relocations is to ensure that the office removals are completed with minimum downtime and to maintain the integrity of the business’s assets. 

The main objective of Cube Relocations is to ensure that the office removals are completed with minimum downtime. Maintaining the integrity of the business’s assets is also our top priority. 

With a wealth of experience, Cube meticulously planned and executed the project from start to finish, which involved:

  • General management and coordination of all move activities including planning and execution
  • The supply of professional equipment such as crates, moving boxes, furniture guards and materials
  • Collaborated closely with the client’s representatives to agree on where items are moving from and to i.e. mapping
  • On-site Supervision
  • Constant review of activities and deadlines with the site Project Manager
  • Professional relocation team including IT Engineers, Packers, Fitters and Porters who are all nominated, fully trained and experienced
  • Sign off with the client’s representative only when the move is completed

The Process

Prior to the office removal commencement date, our Cube Relocations Supervisor carried out an interior buildings condition audit, received a final briefing and signed off with E2Open’s representative. Protective materials of hardboard, paper covers and correx were installed to protect areas of vulnerability in lifts, main entrances and access routes.

Phase 1

Our specialist packing team took down all the TVs from the walls and fully protected them using a padded furniture guard. Other furniture and ancillary items were also professionally packed and loaded on vehicles, ready to be transported to Cube Self Storage’s climate-controlled storage facility to be protectively stored for the duration of the IT office removals. 

Phase 2

The team completed the full delivery to the 14th floor of Media City and positioned the furniture and items as per the client’s instruction. Cube Relocations’ specialist movers worked closely with E2Open to guarantee a smooth and precisely organised relocation. We provided on-site supervision and reviewed activities and deadlines with the site Project Manager daily. The sign-off of the project only happened when everything was fully completed. All unwanted items were cleared and environmentally disposed of. 

Project Highlights

During the on-site survey, our team recommended E2open leave the two 2.4m glass boards which have been siliconed to the wall as moving them would pose a high risk of damaging the office wall. 

Packing Methodologies

Cube Relocations recommended that each workstation/desk be given a unique position number and would be identified sequentially on the floor plan. Personnel were then to be advised of their new location number for the labelling of their personnel crates and PC.

This process should be mirrored for each storage cabinet/cupboard again with a unique number but prefix the label with a C. This indicates to our porter that the crate is to be positioned by a storage cabinet rather than a desk location.
