These finished yesterday, with everyone all moved in and working away without any major hiccups. Wayne & Brian did a fantastic job for us, particularly in the heat that we’ve had this week, and I’ve had nothing but the highest of praise for all their hard work and especially patience when dealing with the staff here during the moves. It goes without saying that Lee & Alfie have been absolutely brilliant as always, I really couldn’t have sorted the logistics without their help, time and patience. I really hope B&S know what they’ve got with those two fellas, they’re absolutely brilliant when it comes to adapting to all the changes and extras that are thrown at them, and they always go that extra bit further to make sure that the job’s done in a manner that everyone in the office should be proud of. Thanks to you guys and to Ray for bearing with us and providing all the crews at the earlier start times, it’s really worked well along with the IT guys and various other on site teams here.
We’re now onto another big series of moves, but in the meantime, my genuine thanks to all involved.

I just wanted to send a note of thanks to everyone for all their hard work and efforts over the last month or more during the recent series of moves and re-shuffles that we’ve had. We’ve had a couple of very high profile groups to relocate into their new areas, our Senior Management team at the beginning of the month, and a 300+ staff and client based project over this past weekend, and thanks to your help everyone’s been successfully moved and has been up and working when they come in the next day!
There’s a few people I’d like to single out if I may. Firstly thanks to Carl for putting the programmes together for us, as that was a big help, especially when we’re dealing with large groups of staff over a couple of longer weekends. Thanks as always to Hayley and Julie for putting through all the orders for men, crates, vans, boxes, bubble wrap, etc etc!! Their help, fun and a bit of banter goes a long way to making things a lot easier and gives us a few laughs into the bargain.
Then there’s the boys up here who’ve been doing all the work for us. Too many to thank them all individually, but the likes of Wayne and Karl who’ve been managing the crews and co-ordinating things on the ground for us. There’s the two Alf’s who’ve either been liaising with staff and client about storage requirements, or with our various other site services in order to make sure that offices and conference rooms were successfully moved and were able to be up and working, something which the client stipulated as a key requirement for this recent move. And lastly to ‘our’ Lee who it’s a pleasure to work closely alongside on a daily basis and who knits everything together for us whether it’s taking phone calls and requests from the likes of me, our IT team, Maintenance, Cleaning, Catering, Security Teams, including all the calls he gets from his own crews.
Everyone did a great job, you should all be very proud of yourselves! You’re a great team!!

I realise that we can’t build a mountain in a day but they have been great working so, so hard to accommodate us. Momentum is building for us with the business and I think there will be much more work in the future.

Your removal guys were absolute sunshine in what was a really stressful couple of weeks. All the guys did a great job given the mad circumstances, they were super professional whilst keeping the atmosphere up. They provided all the moral support I got throughout the whole process too! There were a number of times I got stressed, and out would pop Nick, skipping about with some questionable dance moves. They cheered me up no end, both Nicks, Darren, Calvin, Nathan, all of them! I was genuinely sad to see them go, and sincerely grateful for all their support. Send my very best of wishes to all. I'll have to convince my bosses to move again just to drag them back to see me!

I do want to pass on my thanks on behalf of everyone involved here to yourselves and especially the guys who worked for us.To say that parts of the weekend were ‘challenging’ would be an understatement, none of it our making of course, but the way that your guys reacted and all clubbed in together to help us out when needed is greatly appreciated.
There’s a few special notes of thanks: To Carl Gough for actually making some sense of what we were being sent in terms of labelling etc. To the likes of Karl Trim and Steve B who did a great job, really showing the extra care and attention to detail which we’ve received from you guys over the years. I’d like to pick up both Alfie and Wayne who we’ve had working up here for a long time now - they’re an absolute pleasure to have on site and get on extremely well with all our staff and clients - everyone talks very highly of them.They’re extremely hard working and diligent guys who always want to do their best for anyone they deal with, and they’re a credit to themselves and also to Burton & Smith.
Lastly a very special note of thanks to ‘our’ Lee - an invaluable member of our team here, and like Alfie & Wayne, an absolute pleasure to work alongside. He goes about his work in an incredibly professional manner, and always looks to go above and beyond the call of duty in order to make sure that whatever is asked of him is carried out in the right way. On a daily basis he’s in front of senior KBR members of staff and also important Client Management as well, so his profile here is very often extremely visible. More often than not he is the face of our Facilities Team that staff on the floors see the most of, so to be able to trust and feel comfortable that we have someone like him leading our removal team here is very important, and also valuable. He liaises with other contractors working on site, more often than not using his own initiative in order to achieve the best end result for all parties concerned. I truly hope that Burton & Smith value and appreciate what a positive asset they have in the likes of him, Alfie & Wayne working in their teams. Not only are they diligent hard working guys, but more importantly they’re great blokes as well. Thanks again to all concerned.
