An office relocation is often the ideal solution for London companies which are growing and need more space. Sometimes firms also need to relocate because a lease is ending. Whatever your reasons for deciding on a move, Thames Contracts can organise your whole relocation to new office premises, and make sure it goes smoothly from start to finish.
One major advantage of moving is that you can choose a site which is ideal for your current needs, whereas an older building may have become outdated and unsuitable. You can also decide on an improved location, which will be easier for your clients to reach and where there is space to expand if needed in future.
When moving to a new site, commonly companies need an office relocation service, locally based in London, which includes refurbishing the new building, removals and installation. Another important part of the service is restoring the old building to meet lease requirements. If you choose Thames for your move, we are able to provide a full service which will cover all these elements.
Office Relocation Service
Refurbishment of New Premises: Before you move into your new premises, you will want them fully refurbished to make sure they are suited to the needs of your business. Thames is highly experienced in carrying out office refurbishments of all sizes, and can cover every aspect that is required during the project, providing a one-stop shop.
We will start by visiting the new premises and meeting you to discuss your requirements. This involves carrying out office space planning to ensure the most efficient use of every area of the workplace. We then draw up a computer-visualised office design, together with a detailed quote. This is followed by a pre-contract meeting with you to arrange a timescale for the work, bearing in mind all the priorities of your business. On average a full installation takes just four weeks from start to finish.
Elements which can be included in the office refurbishment include installing new walls and flooring and adding new areas such as additional washrooms or dining areas. Office decoration, carpeting and furniture, such as bespoke desks and storage cabinets, can also be built into the design. Our teams are also able to install all facilities such as air conditioning, electrical work, lighting and data wiring, so there is no need to call on other contractors for these aspects.
Most new offices tend to be mainly open-plan, but it is often necessary also to provide meeting rooms or individual offices within an open area. This can be achieved by use of office partitioning, and Thames specialises in fitting all types of partition, including acoustic and solid partitions as well as glass walls.
Thames also deals with all appropriate approvals from local authorities, including compliance with building control regulations.
Restoration of Old Premises: While your main focus will be on your new buildings, you may also need to restore your old offices after moving out. The terms of a lease often require clients to reinstate premises to the condition in which they were when they took occupation. This could include removal of office partitions, redecoration and any necessary repairs, such as replacing flooring. Thames has expertise in all these areas and can ensure that your old offices are fully restored before you need to hand them back to the landlord.
Moving of Furniture and Equipment: As part of our office relocation service to companies in the London area, Thames can arrange for the physical removal of items from your old premises to your new one. This can include packing and unpacking, as well as setting up of furniture and IT equipment.
