Although each relocation is different, they all begin the same, some much careful planning. Your organisation, morale and productivity can be invigorated with a new facility but if the relocation has been poorly planned then this can have a disastrous effect on work flow.

The Primary OFS site services team was created to get businesses back up and running in record time. We take care of all the details so you can focus on running your business. The Primary OFS project team orchestrates your relocation through a proven set of processes which are tailored to meet your requirements.


Relocation Plan

The most critical component of a successful relocation is the planning. Our team will identify key employees and stakeholders and include them in the planning stage. Together, a detailed plan is created which outlines the roles and responsibilities. The move plan is a living document, constantly updated and communicated to stakeholders as conditions change.

Fragile items, and critical work items are identified at this stage such as computers, printers, phones, and office equipment. Getting these items unpacked and back online is critical to minimizing downtime. At this stage any potential employee issues are identified.

 

Employee Communications

Several days prior to the move employees will receive customized packets. Each packet contains information about the move, new location plans, box labels, and instructions on how and what to pack. Should questions or problems arise, we include extensive ‘who to call’ lists and make ourselves available via phone or email. Throughout the move, we’re on site roaming the facility to answer questions and soothe rattled nerves.

 

The Move

Moves can be phased, done after hours, overnight or on weekends. Our team is prepared to coordinate the entire event. We ensure building administrators are notified, all contents are ‘move-ready’ and that IT teams are standing by for ‘take down’ and ‘re-install’.

The first day employees occupy their new home, a team of installers and technicians work on site to take care of any desired on-the-spot adjustments, and troubleshoot any minor issues that arise.

With careful planning, the right team and the right processes, The Primary OFS ensures your move is a success for everyone. You and your employees can enjoy your new facility and move your company forward more efficiently than ever.
