Our project managers begin work on the customer’s premises before the relocation and continue to closely monitor the process throughout, in order to ensure that all queries are quickly answered and any potential issues are identified and addressed before they emerge.
Our relocation team, led by our Project Manager, will be dedicated to your project throughout and will work closely with you from the start, in order to develop a deep understanding of all the departments, data, instrumentation and machinery to be moved, as well as any research specimens, hazardous goods or chemicals or any specialist items. Our team will establish where inter-dependencies exist and they will be incorporated into a draft relocation schedule to ensure a smooth transition.
A detailed risk matrix and contingency plans will be formulated and used as a working document for the duration of the project. The matrix and plans will be regularly reviewed and updated at agreed points within the project timetable.
A crucial aspect in project managing any size laboratory relocation is the liaison and communication with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). We are hugely experienced in dealing with OEMs, vendors and other third parties involved in laboratory relocation. We are fully familiar with instruments which are under warranty the way this impacts on preparation, handling and transportation.
Our OEM processes, which are built into the overall relocation plan, include OEM communication and a detailed audit trail for proper and correct decontamination and decommissioning procedures of all instrumentation under warranty. Our focus is always on providing and receiving timely information to avoid unnecessary delays or costs.
Our comprehensive Project Management service offers you peace of mind, guaranteeing that every aspect of your relocation is in safe hands and will receive the right level of focus, saving you time and money and significantly removing distractions. Our dedicated approach allows your people to concentrate on their core research work while we handle the details.
