“Our original office space housed three departments, the investments group, corporate group, and the law department,” said Kayla , who is the Vice President of Investor Relations. Over the past year, however, IRG quickly outgrew their space as a result of hiring new talent. This made the the collaborative and communicative culture of our workplace a bit “stuffy."“
IRG decided that a relocation to a bigger building space was imperative to their vision of creating a collaborative culture. “We called CPM because we knew that a relocation consultant would act as an expert to achieve our relocation vision. We needed a relocation team that would understand our business divisions and how they interacted with each other.
The Action: Headquarter Relocation - Relocation Project Management
CPM worked as IRG’s Relocation Consultants to formulate move plans that supported the business needs, maintained continuity and minimized downtime. CPM acted as the owner’s representative to over-see the move of the new space. Overall project management responsibility included:
Owner’s representation: Representation of IRG to various stakeholders: Building Management and vendors.
Worked with IRG to create space plan consisting of culture fit and floor plan of departmental organization

The CPM project team worked closely with Kayla, IRG Vice President 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. CPM’s Senior Project Manager delivered a presentation with key timeline, packing, tagging and move related information to all employees.
