Surrey County Council required a professional relocation service provider that was highly experienced in library relocations, to assist them in moving from their current building to temporary accommodation. This was needed to allow building work and refurbishments to take place.
This relocation project was part of the largest project that Surrey Library Service had undertaken for some time, requiring the relocation of approximately 1700 linear metres of books at the library. The library also had to be cleared of all the library stock, shelving and furniture whilst delivering business as usual operations throughout the project.
Premier Libraries provided a highly experienced and dedicated Project Manager to work alongside the team from Woking Library, to ensure that the project ran smoothly and delivered against all key objectives.
Whilst the refurbishment works took place and all required stock and furniture was cleared. Premier Libraries packed, moved, unpacked and stored the library book stock ensuring that strict sequences were maintained at all times and moved the library back post completion of the refurbishment.
Premier Libraries managed to complete this project ahead of time, delivering a professional service that protected the library assets whilst ensuring business as usual operations for the client.
“My thanks go to the Premier crews who moved Woking Library from the current building to temporary accommodation to allow building work and refurbishment to take place. It was most reassuring that, with other dates, deadlines and details changing, Premier played their part with their normal efficiency. Despite the changing deadlines the teams had thoroughly cleared the building in good time and shifted an incredible quantity of stuff. We look forward to working with them again on the forthcoming projects.”
