Case Study

A successful office clearance for an American multinational bank

Furniture clearance for over 800 staff members

Our client, a large Global Integrated Facilities Management company required our assistance with their customer, an American multinational investment bank and financial services company, who have central hubs across the world.

Crown Workspace were required to clear their central London office space of all furniture before their lease ended, which was during the pandemic. This site previously occupied over 800 staff members. During the clearance works, we implemented additional COVID-19 control measures to ensure that we did our part in stopping the spread of this virus.

Excelling within the required timeframe

Crown Workspace carried out two site audits prior to carrying out the clearance works. We were given a timeframe of seven weeks to complete the clearance, however, we completed it within five weeks. We supplied a team each day varying in size from 13 to 18 team members, ensuring teams were consistently monitored to ensure social distancing guidelines could be upheld.

Crown cleared all of the below items for resale:

  • 715 Herman Miller Aeron task chairs
  • 349 Herman Miller Aeron meeting chairs
  • 79 meeting tables
  • 30 dining chairs
  • 2 dining tables
  • 843 Herman Miller Abak desk frames
  • 6 low level coffee tables

We then carried out the clearance of the below items for recycling:

  • 38 bookcases
  • 843 desktops
  • 348 storage units

For this project, we were able to resell assets returning a total resale value of £88,080.

No items sent to landfill

Following the clearance, Crown supplied a cleaning team for five days to carry out a full sweep and clean of the floors, ensuring the office space was completely ready to be handed back to the landlord.

Recycling was split into mixed recycling and metal recycling, so the client still benefitted from a credit on the metal recycling.

The clearance was successfully completed within the required timeframe, with 0% of items being sent to landfill. The client received a credit back after the works were completed, due to the high value of items being resold. All works were carried out on a weekday during working hours to provide the most cost-effective solution.

We reused and resold 2,024 items, saving 130.56 tonnes of C02 (e).
