Relocating 1,250 people, 1,500 metre crates, 200 IT crates and all their equipment.
Tonbridge Grammar School needed to move out of their disparate and scattered old school buildings and into the new Hands Building which had just been completed for them by Rydon Group.
Our re-location team were duly summoned:
With all the teaching aids, over 250 PC's, chairs, desks, copiers, printers, musical and gym equipment and the collective classroom contents for over 1000 children and their teachers this presented a significant challenge. The School tendered the work and after meeting our team granted us the contract to project manage and move them.
The move took place over the Autumn Half Term and had to be complete by the time the pupils came back. Working alongside representatives from the school and the builders Capex attacked the job with enthusiasm and beat the deadline. The clutter alone filled over 1500 1 metre lidded crates and 200 3/4 cubic metre IT crates.
Additionally, all the network PC's, printers and AV equipment had to be connected and run-up by our team of movers.
David Wells, Tonbridge's Bursar writes the following: “I want to put on record my appreciation of the work done by Capex Office Interiors Ltd in the relocation of the teaching and learning operations of Tonbridge Grammar School.
From initial contacts and surveys to preparation and execution the approach taken has been proactive, positive and co-operative. During the very hard work involved in moving material among the various buildings, Capex's operatives have remained punctual, courteous and strong!
I have been particularly impressed with the initiative shown by the supervisors, and by the care they have taken with the school's equipment. In my opinion, Capex has proved an excellent choice for the task”
