Our project clock starts 120 days prior to the move as we begin our detailed analysis and documentation of your systems.
We start by assessing the systems in your current environment and identifying any potential “gotchas” up front. We make sure that all systems operate smoothly before and after the move.
Planning & Assessment
We work from our detailed office move project playbook, documenting and tagging all servers, workstations, printers, and network boundary devices.
We generate an office floor plan identifying employee locations, network printer locations, copier locations, server room, service demarc, and any other locations for your essential IT systems.
Coordination, Move & Setup
We orchestrate the moving of equipment, coordinate with 3rd-party vendors and stakeholders to ensure all communications services & construction build-outs are ready for the move-in date.
We assess your security posture, identify potential vulnerabilities, and implement cyber security solutions designed to match your organization’s needs.
Phone Systems & Service
Our telecom experts analyze existing phone systems and services to determine if these will satisfy needs in new location. If more effective solutions exist, we provide our recommendations along with cost-benefit analysis.
Infrastructure Wiring & Wi-Fi
Our cabling experts do an advanced walk-through to determine where Wi-Fi access points and network cabling drops are required. We install cabling in a neat and organized manner, clearly marking jacks and ports in telecommunications closet.
Testing & Support

How do I plan an office relocation?
There are so many components to a successful office move that the only easy answer is to start planning early on. The more time you allow yourself to get this move accomplished, the more time you’ll have to factor in specific needs and requirements at the new address. Employee input is enormously helpful, and you’ll want them to be as excited about the move as you are.
How do I reduce the stress of my office move?
Planning and communicating with your staff can help circumvent many frustrations with the moving process. Creating alternate work arrangements, such as a virtual or temporary office, can help prevent a drop in productivity. The sequential order of your move, such as when to handle the network relocation, matters so that you don’t accidentally inconvenience your employees. Hiring experienced consultants to help you move can eliminate the pain often associated with relocating your office and staff.
What is the impact of an office move on employees?
While office moves are typically executed to improve the workplace, some people inherently face challenges when moving to a new location. That said, 68% of employees say a relocation had a positive impact on them. Proper planning and employee input is essential for providing a positive office relocation experience for your team.
Do I need video surveillance?
A video surveillance system protects against property theft and vandalism, acts as an excellent deterrent to falsified lawsuits and staged accidents, helps deter thieves and shoplifters and other forms of crime. If an event occurs, you’ll have the required footage to know what happened, when, and who was involved.
What about access control?
A great add-on to video surveillance, access control provides the ability to allow employees to enter specific areas of your facility at a particular time. It also gives you the ability to monitor who comes and goes. When an employee leaves the company, you can deactivate their access profile, eliminating the need to go door-to-door to recode or rekey them.
