Scotiabank

About This Project

A smooth move by Revo. When Scotiabank planned the relocation of its London offices, the company compiled a shortlist of three companies to undertake the move. Then Revo Ltd contacted the bank and, having been added to the shortlist at the last minute, emerged from the detailed pre-qualification and formal tendering process with the project contract.

Clive Brownlee, corporate relocation consultant, explains: “Right from the pre-qualification process, Revo proved they understood customer service and had professional pride; they were in control. They shared the load because they did what they said they were going to do, came up with ideas, were very pleasant to deal with and thought ahead to make sure it’s not your problem. You don’t feel alone; these guys really wanted it to go well and all important factors were addressed including health and safety, cost, sustainability and environmental conscience.”

The relocation involved moving nearly 300 staff’s workstations from Scotiabank’s old offices in Finsbury Square to new office space across the City to Bishopsgate, over two consecutive weekends.

A second part of the project was to clear the Finsbury Square offices of unwanted furniture; Revo is committed to reuse wherever possible but, where furniture was unsaleable, the constituent parts were removed to be separated and recycled with the emphasis on efficient sustainability and reduction of waste output, carbon footprint and financial cost.
