Refurbishment of Occupied Office Space

Refurbishment of Occupied Office Space

Out-of-hours CHURN is refurbishment of occupied office space over a weekend or Bank Holiday
So how exactly do we do that?
Businesses need to reorganise their office for many different reasons. Some are moving the organisation to a new site, some need to restructure their office or have just renewed the lease and want to make the working environment more efficient and professional looking, for staff and customers. One thing that nearly all Customers require though is ‘minimal disruption’ to their business and their staff.

‘Out of hours office churn’ is the term that we use for moving, re-fitting or relocating occupied office environments at a time when they’re not being used, typically overnight or at the weekend. With the current trend for saturated office space with smaller workstations and better space utilisation, following the introduction of flat screens and smarter ways of working, hot desking, hoteling etc, decanting staff and desks to another place during the move is a thing of the past which, in turn makes your typical churn project a more involved process. It requires a safe set of hands to deliver it properly and ensure everything is in place to be operational first thing Monday when the staff return. Factor in the requirement to relocate IT, add power, data and patch the cabinet then things get even tougher to achieve without staff downtime. Add any form of construction to the mix and now you’re starting to see risk to the business.
