Project Profile: World’s Largest Security and Fire Protection Company

Nationwide Customized Solutions for World's Largest Security and Fire Protection Company

The Challenge

When it was announced that the world’s largest electronic security product, installation and services company would be separating into three independent companies, they were faced with the tremendous challenge to physically separate the occupancy, furniture, fixtures and equipment in 68 locations across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico over a 12-month window. Their mission critical challenge was to boost planning and relocation capacity in a very short period of time and establish a delivery framework that would ensure a consistent level of service across a very diverse portfolio of activity without compromising core business operations. Nothing can prepare a facilities and real estate organization for such a massive amount of work in a short period of time. The client quickly realized the need to identify key suppliers to ramp up for the massive work load. Not only did they need to identify key providers, it was critical to find partners that complemented each other in the planning and delivery process.

Project Goal: Separate the occupancy, furniture, fixtures and equipment in 68 locations across the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada over a 12-month window.
