Although balanced calendars are getting more widely acknowledged, more often than not, we work with educational facilities with limited job timelines occurring primarily between the months of June and September. We participate yearly in many local school relocations of almost every scope and scale. Though the wide majority of local school moving need our team to be on-site to move goods and equipment to and from temporary storage facilities during larger building jobs, Corrigan is also capable of providing services to newly constructed facilities.
A Typical School Move: The Evaluation
During the move out phase of a project, our team of trained experts is generally responsible for handling the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and moving items to a secure storage location. And, in spite its seemingly straight forward procedure, there is a number of particulars that have to be planned for before relocating a school.
To start, and for correct planning, an overall job estimate needs to take place. Through this process, a commercial relocation professional from the Corrigan team will typically complete a “walk through” of the location or buildings involved. He or she will collect details relative to the scale and complexity of the school relocation project, including the whereabouts of all articles to be moved. Depending on the particular job itself, this can be a sequence of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the primary location 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 questions, like if any furniture will require disassembly and reassembly as a portion of this project. If disassembly is required, for cubicles or other business systems, our professionals will also need to know if there is any rearrangement planned for reassembling. In the case of cubicles, the pieces will be reassembled as they originally fit the space. Through this walk-through procedure, equipment such as computer systems, monitors, media and other equipment will be shown. Our moving professional will be determining any disconnect and reconnection services needed along with the expertise needed for each component of equipment being relocated. In the event of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our experts will be absolutely thoughtful to items demanding customized oversight and handling, expensive pieces along with any specimens or regulated materials being relocated.
While our moving expert works to determine the tangible furniture requiring to be relocated, he or she will also be gauging additional, and potentially not so obvious necessities of the project. When collaborating with Corrigan, as with any skilled craftsman, there is an inherent sense of knowledge that intrinsically addresses the unseen and often overlooked essentials non-experts lack. Our crew of trained relocation and storage experts are instructed to identify the amount of furniture in relation any storage requirements, property protection, along with important entrance spots for an additional layer of protection. We’ll be determining packing materials and supplies for example the amount of totes, stickers and boxes are needed, in addition to carts and speed packs required. Furthermore, our commercial relocation professional will decide the number of crew members necessary, and time necessary to quickly fulfill the requirements of each individual project.
When the particulars of the project are understood, Corrigan’s relocation expert is able to assemble the specifics and calculate a budget for the project.
School Moving: Phase I, Move Out
After the task of checking all details are covered, it’s time for Corrigan’s moving crew to join and actually do the heavy-lifting. We can say, without delay, Corrigan’s movers are some of the best experienced and educated movers the field has to offer. With our internal, hands-on educational locations and corporate instructor, our relocation teams are the best in the business.
Supplied with the specifics and details shared from the first job assessment, our relocation crew will be ready to do the tasks required and keep the project on schedule. During the initial move out process, our team will be certain the facility is correctly protected, including bracing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled locations. We will clearly label each area and the belongings being transferred, complete any necessary packing as well as properly disassemble and box up any items demanding our crew’s attention. Our crew will appear on-time, with the appropriate tools to ensure all timetables are reached.
Once our moving team has carefully packed all articles, they will be relocated into interim storage, either on-site or, within Corrigan’s secured warehouse as agreed to by the school’s administration. There they will continue to be secured until any required construction projects have been completed by other vendors.
School Relocation: Phase II
Though Phase II of the move process for most schools is reserved, Corrigan understands this is a tentative timeline hinging on all other vendor work is finished. If there are no hold ups in the building phase of the project, Corrigan will assume phase II at the first planned booked day and time.
Essentially this phase of the school relocation project is opposite of phase I. Our professionals will again guarantee the building and facilities are appropriately covered, securing all traveled areas, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Furniture will be delivered out of storage and relocated to their properly labeled area. Our moving team will work to assemble any furniture, before connecting equipment and devices.
Once items are efficiently delivered to their proper location, and all reconnection services have been finished, our crew will conduct one concluding walk through with appropriate school representatives to see that all work has been correctly completed to the top degree Corrigan is known for.
