The Laboratory Equipment Relocation Project

This project involved the careful movement, management, and storage of specialised equipment, associated furniture, and paperwork.

Building Protection

Prior to the move, Cube’s expert movers meticulously documented the building’s interior using a digital camera. This collaborative approach ensured transparent communication, as any identified concerns were addressed and confirmed in a mutually agreed-upon report.

To safeguard vulnerable areas like doorways, elevator interiors, and access routes, the team employed a combination of protective materials, including Correx, layered paper covers, and hardboards.
