While balanced calendars are growing more widely accepted, regularly, we collaborate with educational institutions with restricted project dates occurring primarily between the months of June and September. We participate annually in many local school moves of nearly every complexity and scale. Though the vast majority of local school moving requires our professionals to be on-site to move pieces and technology to and from short-term storage facilities during larger construction projects, Corrigan is also able to provide solutions to newly built facilities.
A Standard School Relocation: The Evaluation
Throughout the move out step of a project, our crew of educated experts is usually responsible for managing the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and relocating goods to a safe storage location. And, despite its presumably easy procedure, there is a slew of particulars that have to be addressed prior to moving a school.
First of all, and for adequate organizing, an overall job assessment must take place. Throughout this process, a commercial relocation expert from the Corrigan team will usually perform a “walk through” of the facility or facilities involved. He or she will accumulate info relative to the scale and complexity of the school relocation job, including the location of all articles to be moved. Based on the particular job itself, this can be a series of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the general area is assessed, our commercial moving team of experts will also be determining furniture and equipment included as part of the move. They’ll be asking about details, like if any articles will require disassembly and reassembly as part of this project. If disassembly is necessary, for cubicles or other business systems, our professionals will also need to know if there’s any reconfiguration scheduled for reassembling. In the case of cubicles, the pieces will be put together as they originally fit the space. During this walk-through procedure, electronics such as computer systems, monitors, media and other equipment will be noted. Our relocation professional will be determining any disconnect and reconnection work required along with the expertise necessary for each part of equipment being relocated. In the case of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our team will be extremely sensitive to articles requiring customized oversight and handling, high value technology in addition to any specimens or caustic items being relocated.
While our moving expert works to confirm the tangible pieces requiring to be moved, he or she will also be planning additional, and possibly not so apparent requirements of the job. When collaborating with Corrigan, as well as any trained craftsman, there is an extreme sense of knowledge that innately addresses the unseen and often forgotten basics non-experts lack. Our team of knowledgeable relocation and storage professionals are instructed to establish the volume of goods in relation any storage needs, property protection, in addition to key entrance locations for an added level of protection. We’ll be considering packing materials and supplies like the number totes, stickers and boxes are needed, along with dollies and speed packs necessary. In addition, our commercial moving professional will decide the number of crew members required, and time involved to quickly complete the demands of each unique project.
When the particulars of the project are known, Corrigan’s relocation expert is able to organize the specifics and provide a proposal for the project.
School Relocation: Phase I, Move Out
After the heavy-lifting of checking all details are managed, it’s time for Corrigan’s moving team to step in and literally do the heavy-lifting. We can brag, without delay, Corrigan’s movers are some of the most experienced and well-trained movers the business has to offer. With our internal, hands-on training spaces and corporate teacher, our relocation teams are the best of the best.
Supplied with the particulars and details noted from the first job walk-through, our relocation crew will be ready to do the tasks necessary and keep the project on track. During the primary move out process, our team will make sure the building is adequately protected, including securing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled locations. We will properly document each area and the items being transferred, accomplish any required packing as well as properly disassemble and pack any items demanding our crew’s review. Our team will appear on-time, with the proper tools to ensure all timelines are reached.
After our moving team has appropriately packed all articles, they will be moved into interim storage, either on-site or, within Corrigan’s secure warehouse as decided by the school’s administration. There they will remain secured until any required construction projects have been completed by other vendors.
School Moving: Phase II
Though Phase II of the relocation process for many schools is booked, Corrigan knows this is a tentative timeline dependent on all other trade work is accomplished. Assuming there are no interruptions in the building phase of the project, Corrigan will initiate phase II at the first discussed reserved day and time.
Essentially this stage of the school relocation job is reverse of phase I. Our crew will again guarantee the property and facilities are adequately covered, protecting all traveled areas, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Items will be delivered out of storage and relocated to their correctly designated location. Our moving crew will work to put together any furniture, before connecting equipment and devices.
Once items are effectively delivered to their final spot, and all connection services have been finished, our crew will perform one last walk through with appropriate school representatives to see that all items have been correctly completed to the finest level Corrigan is known for.
