SPC joined the Co-operative’s Facilities Management Shared Services Property Strategy Team to review and implement strategy and project manage existing staff migration to other offices. This led existing buildings where the lease could be terminated or the building being offered up for sale.

The migration of staff required considerable project management due to the existing portfolio being split across their core business areas i.e. Bank, Food, Pharmacy and Funeral. All with their own IT, Telephony etc. requirements it was critical that this was accommodated in their new accommodation as no ‘down time’ was acceptable. All the services and migration had to be undertaken in tight timescales to ensure the surrender of the lease or the sale of the building could go through so again it was critical these milestones were achieved.
