  • Relocating all equipment, crates and effects to new premises and position as per designated plans.
  • Unpacking of IT if required.
  • Unpacking of general crates.

The Process

Upon arriving at Pax8, Edward Baden Supervisor received instructions and final briefing from the client representative. The team carried out the unpacking of appr. 750-800 boxes of IT equipment consisting of monitors, docking station, keyboard, mouse and moved them on the new workstations to be ready for the IT Team. All packaging was gathered and placed into the agreed holding area. 

Edward Baden IT Division commissioned 185 workstations, each one consisting of 2 Dell monitors, 1 Dell docking station, webcam, keyboard, mouse and network cables. The process of attaching monitors to monitor arms, completing wire management, setting up the desk in accordance to briefing and snagging took place. 

At the end of the operation, our Supervisors signed off with the on-site representative to ensure approval and satisfaction.
