While balanced calendars are getting more widely acknowledged, more often than not, we encounter educational institutions with limited project timelines occurring mainly between the months of June and September. We partake routinely in several local school relocations of nearly every difficulty and scale. Though the vast majority of local school relocation specifies our team to be on-site to move pieces and equipment to and from brief storage facilities during larger building projects, Corrigan is also able to provide services to recently built facilities.
A Typical School Relocation: The Evaluation
During the move out phase of a project, our crew of trained experts is usually responsible for managing the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and relocating goods to a secure storage facility. And, regardless of its presumably easy operation, there is a multitude of details that have to be planned for prior to moving a school.
To start, and for correct planning, an overall job evaluation needs to take place. Throughout this process, a commercial relocation professional from the Corrigan team will generally perform a “walk through” of the property or buildings involved. He or she will gather information relative to the scale and scope of the school relocation project, including the location of all items to be relocated. Depending on the particular project itself, this could be a series of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the general area is reviewed, our commercial relocation team of experts will also be identifying furniture and equipment involved as part of the move. They will be asking about details, such as if any furniture will need disassembly and reassembly as a portion of this project. If disassembly is needed, for cubicles or other business systems, our team will also need to know if there is any reconfiguration scheduled for reassembling. In the case of cubicles, the parts will be put together as they initially fit the location. Throughout this walk-through process, equipment such as computer systems, monitors, media and other articles will be identified. Our relocation professional will be determining any disconnect and reconnection services needed as well as the experience needed for each component of technology being relocated. In the case of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our professionals will be extra cautious to pieces needing unique care and handling, expensive equipment in addition to any samples or caustic items being moved.
While our moving professional works to determine the physical goods requiring to be relocated, he or she will also be planning other, and perhaps not so apparent necessities of the job. When partnering with Corrigan, along with any trained craftsman, there’s an extreme sense of knowledge that inherently addresses the out-of-sight and frequently overlooked essentials non-experts lack. Our team of knowledgeable moving and storage professionals are trained to identify the amount of goods in relation any storage needs, property protection, along with important access locations for an additional layer of protection. We’ll be evaluating packing materials and supplies for example the amount of totes, stickers and cartons are required, in addition to dollies and speed packs required. In addition, our commercial moving professional will decipher the number of people needed, and time involved to quickly complete the demands of each individual project.
When the details of the job are realized, Corrigan’s moving expert is able to organize the information and establish a cost estimate for the project.
School Moving: Phase I, Move Out
After the undertaking of ensuring all specifics are handled, it’s time for Corrigan’s moving crew to enter and literally do the heavy-lifting. We can boast, without delay, Corrigan’s movers are some of the best experienced and skilled movers the field has to offer. With our in-house, hands-on educational spaces and corporate teacher, our relocation professionals are the best in the business.
Given the information and details noted from the first job evaluation, our relocation crew will be prepared to do the jobs required and keep the project on your timeline. During the primary move out stage, our team will make sure the facility is properly protected, including bracing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled spots. We will clearly label each area and the items being transferred, complete any needed packing as well as appropriately disassemble and pack any items requiring our crew’s consideration. Our team will appear on-time, with the correct equipment to guarantee all schedules are met.
As soon as our moving team has appropriately packed all items, they will be placed into short-term storage, either on-site or, within Corrigan’s secured warehouse as agreed to by the school’s administration. There they will remain secured until any required construction projects have been handled by other trades.
School Moving: Phase II
Though Phase II of the move process for many schools is scheduled, Corrigan understands this is a speculative schedule dependent on all other trade work is accomplished. Providing there are no hold ups in the building stage of the project, Corrigan will initiate phase II at the initially agreed upon booked day and time.
Basically this stage of the school moving job is opposite of phase I. Our crew will again ensure the building and facilities are appropriately covered, securing all traveled spots, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Pieces will be delivered out of storage and moved to their appropriately determined area. Our moving crew will work to reassemble any furniture, before connecting equipment and devices.
Once items are effectively delivered to their proper location, and all reconnection services have been accomplished, our team will handle one final walk through with designated school representatives to see that all tasks have been appropriately finished to the top degree Corrigan is known for.
