Most companies think they can't afford to hire professional Relocation Project Managers so assign the responsibility to a member of their own staff. But the reality is that most employees have little to no experience of managing an office relocation project. Let's face it moving office can be a full-time job in itself - and not forgetting that you have to continue to take care of your day-to-day responsibilities. It's no wonder that companies fall prey to the same moving office pitfalls time and time again.

The bottom line is that companies moving office all have the same end goal; to end up in the right office, on the right lease terms, with the right office design and everything working on that first morning in the new office – and all this having happened on time, to budget and with minimum hassle and business disruption. It sounds easy when you say it quickly!
