Trustee, Custodian and Financial Administration services provider, Trustees Executors, were required to vacate their existing premises, as their lease was due to expire and the landlord needed consecutive floors for another tenant. To assist, AMP provided them with alternative office locations to consider, in other buildings that they owned.
Finding the time to evaluate new space for their office premises and relocating 25 staff into a new office building was a time consuming task for Trustees Executors. And as we had worked with them previously on several office alterations, we were invited to assist with the spatial assessment and selection of their preferred office space, and help manage the design, fit-out and office relocation.
Thomas Hoey, Group Executive, said "based on high level plans and budget numbers that Malcolm & Sumner supplied, we were able to make a confident decision to move to Shortland St."
“From my perspective, Diane did everything, and more, to help us achieve our goal. Malcolm & Sumner's part was critical - from their design advice, space planning, accurate drawings and overviewing the fit-out and the entire relocation process."
"At the end of the day, you can't put a cost on time. Diane sees things differently than we do. Diane sees in a space, things we wouldn't think of."
"We had trust that Malcolm & Sumner had everything under control. Diane was available when we needed her and liaised directly with the trades during the fit-out to ensure the design details were accurate. It saved us trying to manage something we knew nothing about."
"Our shift happened successfully over a weekend. Diane labelled all our existing furniture. We left everything in the care of Malcolm & Sumner, the moving company and our IT guy. It was a successful move from our part."
"Our staff are happy. It was a very successful change. Diane is all about building relationships and understanding her clients. She listens to you, and in consultation with you, comes up with the right solutions."
"My advice to anyone contemplating a relocation, would be, get someone to do the design & management work for you, don't attempt it yourself. People that attempt a task like this, without professional design advice, probably do not end up with a permanent solution, costing extra time and money."
