Mind is a charity that provides advice and support and campaigns on mental heath issues. The refurbishment of all seven floors of their central London headquarters by Workspace involved the relocation of nearly 250 staff. This mammoth task was completed by B&S over 7 weekends between July and November 2013 and involved 57 B&S movers, 21 vehicles and the use of around 2,300 crates.
Many staff at Mind had to be moved more than once to enable the building works to be completed on the various floors, so people got used to seeing our crews hard at their work. Office Manager Jan King observed: ‘The B&S teams were quite stunning in their efforts, nothing was too much for them. We will quite miss them now the work is all done, as they became part of the team’.
Teamwork is very much part of the B&S ethos, and the careful planning that took place with our client prior to the move, ensured that any disruption to the vital work of the charity was kept to an absolute minimum.
