PROJECT OVERVIEW:

The Facilities Director at Newsweek Magazine contacted our company to manage the relocation of approximately 500 employees from midtown to downtown Manhattan. This 160,000 square foot project required several months of coordinating to ensure that all libraries, files, and departments were relocated to their proper destinations. Our team held move committee meetings to meet with each move captain to determine their specific needs and fulfill their requests. Additionally, our team implemented a unique communications program tailored specifically to the Newsweek culture that included distributing move newsletters and a welcome package. Our staff took weekly construction progress photos, published them on client intranet, and sent email blasts with a link to all employees. Most importantly, we successfully negotiated the vendor contract to only $83K ($0.52 per square foot – $166.00 per person).
