Hospital Move Success by Quicksilver Removals & Storage, Newcastle
Since the turn of the year we’ve been working closely with the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle to help staff move departments to a new Clinical office block.
This was a demanding and highly time sensitive project to have staff, equipment and furniture moved in a short period of time, working around hospital demands. We’ve worked over night to avoid disruption to working hours and all of the staff at the RVI have been wonderfully accommodating with the move schedule.
From initial surveying to planning the move, we carried out in-depth inspections of everything to be relocated, packed and wrapped to ensure a smooth move for everyone.
We love stats so here are a few dazzling figures that are involved with this critical move…
4500 crates of desk contents, administration files and equipment relocated
967 IT desks all packed, wrapped and moved
35,420 cubic feet of furniture relocated
40 microscopes and associated equipment all packed, wrapped and relocated
121.5 tonnes of redundant furniture recycled
8.5 tonnes of redundant furniture reused and re purposed
Our specialist commercial removal teams were working to their limits with some of the heavy and large items required to be relocated; not only did we pack, wrap and relocate hundreds of items, we also collaborated with the Trust to identify furniture for reuse and recycling.
Old or damaged furniture was brought back to Quicksilver HQ to strip down to component parts and recycled via wood and metal specialists. We’re far more than just a removal firm and the Trust were impressed with our wide range of services that complemented this project from start to finish.
We work closely with many NHS trusts and with our experience, we can quickly and effectively relocate departments with minimum disruption to everyday working hours.
Now onto the next job!
We often have furniture that is repurposed and is suitable for reuse so if you have any requirements for second-hand furniture please get in touch and email firstname.lastname@example.org
