Although balanced calendars are growing more widely recognized, more often than not, we work with educational facilities with restricted project dates occurring mainly between the months of June and September. We participate yearly in many local school moves of nearly every difficulty and size. Though the vast majority of local school moving requires our team to be on-site to move pieces and technology to and from brief warehouse facilities during larger construction projects, Corrigan is also capable of providing services to recently built facilities.
A Standard School Move: The Estimation
During the move out step of a project, our team of trained experts is usually responsible for handling the disassembly of furniture, packing equipment and moving items to a safe storage facility. And, in spite its seemingly easy process, there is a number of specifics that have to be addressed before relocating a school.
To start, and for proper planning, an overall job evaluation must take place. During this process, a commercial relocation expert from the Corrigan team will generally perform a “walk through” of the facility or buildings included. He or she will accumulate info related to the scale and complexity of the school relocation job, including the whereabouts of all pieces to be relocated. Depending on the specific project itself, this can be a series of classrooms, offices or departments.
While the general space is reviewed, our commercial relocation team of professionals will also be identifying furniture and equipment involved as part of the move. They’ll be asking questions, such as if any articles will need disassembly and reassembly as a piece of this project. If disassembly is necessary, for cubicles or other business furniture, our experts will also want to know if there is any reconfiguration intended for reassembling. In the situation of cubicles, the parts will be put together as they primarily fit the area. Throughout this walk-through procedure, technology such as computer systems, monitors, media and other pieces will be noted. Our moving expert will be determining any disconnect and reconnection work required as well as the expertise required for each piece of technology being moved. In the case of moving science laboratories, or technology labs, our experts will be extremely sensitive to pieces requiring special oversight and handling, high value pieces as well as any samples or regulated materials being moved.
While our moving expert works to confirm the physical pieces needing to be relocated, he or she will also be gauging additional, and perhaps not so clear needs of the project. When partnering with Corrigan, as well as any adept craftsman, there is an extreme sense of expertise that intrinsically addresses the out-of-sight and often overlooked essentials non-experts lack. Our team of skilled relocation and storage experts are educated to identify the volume of items in relation any storage requirements, property protection, in addition to critical entry locations for an added layer of protection. We’ll be considering packing materials and supplies like the number totes, stickers and cartons are needed, as well as dollies and speed packs required. Furthermore, our commercial moving expert will determine the number of people necessary, and time involved to efficiently meet the needs of each unique project.
Once the specifics of the job are realized, Corrigan’s moving expert is able to organize the specifics and provide a budget for the project.
School Moving: Phase I, Move Out
After the undertaking of checking all particulars are managed, it’s time for Corrigan’s relocation professionals to step in and actually do the heavy-lifting. We can say, without a doubt, Corrigan’s movers are some of the most intelligent and well-trained movers the business has to offer. With our internal, hands-on training spaces and corporate teacher, our moving teams are the best in the business.
Provided the specifics and details noted from the first job walk-through, our relocation team will be equipped to do the work necessary and keep the project on schedule. During the primary move out process, our crew will make sure the facility is properly protected, including bracing all door jams, walls and floors in traveled spots. We will correctly tag each spot and the belongings being relocated, complete any needed 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 guarantee all timetables are met.
Once our moving team has appropriately packed all pieces, 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 remain secured until any needed construction projects have been finished by other trades.
School Relocation: Phase II
Though Phase II of the relocation process for many schools is booked, Corrigan realizes this is a speculative timeline dependent on all other trade work is complete. Providing there are no interruptions in the construction stage of the project, Corrigan will start phase II at the first agreed upon scheduled day and time.
Basically this stage of the school relocation project is the turnabout of phase I. Our crew will again make sure the building and facilities are adequately covered, securing all traveled locations, including door jams, elevator entrances, walls and flooring. Furniture will be delivered out of storage and transported to their correctly determined spot. Our relocation team will work to put together any furniture, before reconnecting equipment and devices.
Once articles are efficiently delivered to their appropriate area, and all set up services have been completed, our crew will handle one last walk through with designated school representatives to ensure that all tasks have been properly accomplished to the highest level Corrigan is revered for.
