When you move your company, there are hundreds if not thousands of details associated with the planning and orchestration of your move. JBA’s clients find that our hands-on, proactive effort in the planning and orchestration of their relocation protects their ongoing business and drives a seamless transition.
JBA’s initial focus is defining exactly which assets and property will be moved. We then look very carefully at the migration of these assets in a sequential fashion that eases the planning and orchestration effort. In many cases, we will number and color code all furniture, equipment and other assets by area and department. We can showcase the current assets in place and illustrate how they will “disappear” from the origin and “reappear” in the destination.
In general, relocations are stressful. JBA’s approach, tools and systems are designed to organize your move and reduce stress. In many cases, we develop an in-house move management team that works closely with JBA . This team often represents an area or department within the larger operation. JBA uses the approach “train the trainer” to communicate clearly to all team members to ease the relocation program.
JBA has assisted in the planning and orchestrating of millions of square feet of office space, clients range from ten or less employees to several hundred. JBA follows a proven office migration model in planning and executing seamless office relocations. This includes the accurate documentation of the current layout, furniture, workstations and all office assets.
We work closely with the operator of each workstations to identify their requirements in their new office space. In some cases, we are moving a single office to a new single location office and in others, we are consolidating multiple facilities into one. In each case, we are tracking hundreds of assets and multiple vendors to support the effort. These vendors include architects, engineers, furniture suppliers, low voltage cabling firms, security specialists and many others. JBA looks to “simulate” each move step by step throughout the process and provide structure and comfort in each office move.
The selection of the ideal commercial office mover is critical. Some initially think “a mover is a mover”, but we have found the best movers have a detailed plan, experienced supervisors and movers and have a proactive customer service focus that provides great value. One of JBA’s many skills is vendor selection; it is important to know who to invite as well as whom not to invite.
JBA has completed hundreds of industrial and manufacturing projects since 1954. These projects include heavy manufacturing, plastics manufacturers, medical device organization, pharmaceuticals, food processing, etc. Each industrial move must be planned to protect the ongoing business. It is critical to define the current state including all manufacturing tools as well as defining all tools and systems to be included within the new improved space.
JBA’s industrial moves include the development of budgets, schedules, migration plans, request for proposals, and heavy onsite move management throughout the critical relocation activities. JBA has supported extremely complex moves. One such move consolidated nine metal fabrication facilities into one. With solid planning and vendor selection this was accomplished over one weekend in a solid fashion. Your relocation requires a custom approach. Whether you are a plastic manufacturer, metal device distributor or a food processor, you require a different industrial moving plan. We integrate multiple specialists within your industrial move plan and provide customized approaches to meet your specific needs.
