Puppet is the biggest and fastest growing Tech Company in Portland, OR and in turn has outgrown their existing space in the Pearl District. With a 75,000 square feet lease in the Block 300 building in downtown Portland, the new space will allow Puppet’s headquarters to grow to as many as 500 employees.
CPM One Source was engaged by CBRE on behalf of Puppet in September 2014 to provide complete Relocation Project Management and Move Management services for their HQ relocation from their current space in the Pearl District to the newly constructed space in the Block 300 building. The 300 person relocation was completed in a single phase move during the weekend of October 24, 2014. Scope of services included relocation planning, coordination, logistics, implementation, execution and post move management. In addition, CPM also provided move services for all contents, equipment, furniture and server equipment.
CPM worked diligently with the CBRE Project Manager, Puppet facilities staff, move team and support staff in obtaining and identifying critical components of the project to formulate a move plan that met Puppet’s requirements, timeline and budget.
The CPM project team also worked closely with Sarah Drew, CBRE Project Manager, and the Puppet move team to provide clear communications, keeping the employees informed of all move related activities to ensure a smooth transition. Weekly meetings were held with the facilities team and department representatives to discuss move strategy, schedule and process. Irene Lee, CPM’s Senior Project Manager, attended the Company’s “Big Picture” meeting and delivered a presentation with key timeline, packing, tagging and move related information to all employees.
The CPM move team provided best-in-class move services with highest attention to detail and timely responses that proved to be critical in the success of the Puppet relocation. All contents, furniture and equipment were relocated without damage and accurately placed at the final destination. The CPM team’s flexibility and adaptability in the fast paced environment of Puppet were crucial in accomplishing the move within the timeline.
The entire CPM team was able to assimilate into the Puppet’s culture to be efficient, well-organized and effective in the planning, coordination and execution of the project.
