Harrow Green move Bristol Royal Hospital for Children
We find out about Harrow Green's latest office removals project assisting the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children
There could be no bigger test of a commercial and IT relocation than ensuring the safe move of a children’s hospital. But Harrow Green have been assisting businesses in their relocation for over 25 years and have a wealth of expertise in providing high quality commercial relocations and storage solutions.
Moving the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children is a testament to the dedication and skill of the commercial removals teams at Harrow Green. It involved considerable liaison with the hospital management team, co-ordination of key people in the move and a lengthy planning process prior to the relocation.
Sue Revell of the United Bristol Healthcare NHS Trust commented: “We were specifically looking for a company that recognised this was not a typical move, and one with no margin for error. Harrow Green’s track record of exceptional moves preceded them.”
Working closely with KKAP Consultancy, they relocated both patients and departments to a new eight-floor building including the transfer of three operating theatres, the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and five medical and surgical wards. Moreover, around 1,000 linear metres of medical records were also transported from a number of different departments. The relocation project took ten days to complete successfully and required considerable organisation and care throughout. Describing their experience of Harrow Green, Graham Nix the Project Director of United Bristol Healthcare NHS Trust said: “Harrow Green got involved with the culture and enthusiasm of the hospital from the start. Very close working relationships were established with all of the departments and the wards. Feedback from the staff, the parents and, of course, the patients, was that the team was ‘absolutely tremendous’.”
