Outgrowing your office space is a fantastic sign of a healthy business. When it’s time to stop converting coffee tables into desks, the next step is to find a suitable space for your needs. Understanding how your IT infrastructure will fit in your new space can be complex, which is why we work with you every step of the way to identify potential risks and find practical solutions.
It’s not as simple as unplugging and re-plugging of cables. There’s plenty to think about during an office move, from the grand scheme of how things should be set-up, to small details such as whether you will keep your existing phone numbers.
We work closely with the movers who take the fridge and the office plant, to ensure that all equipment is packed securely and handled with care.
We also understand that change can be sensitive for staff undergoing a move. Therefore, we plan in a way that will have the least disruption possible to your business, for example by scheduling the move to take place on a weekend.
With years of experience, we guide you through the process, planning to avoid potential problems and managing potential risks.
Frequently Asked Questions
Being informed as early as possible is always recommended, especially as every case has different challenges and requirements.

The shorter timeline you give yourself and your contractors, the more stressful the project will be and most likely the higher the price will be.
For a basic office set up with less than 50 people, the IT relocation can take place over a single weekend.

We can assist in office relocations within Hong Kong, or within Singapore. We do not service international office moves, but we
can work with partners abroad to manage an overseas move.
Some companies use an office move as an opportunity to evaluate their hardware, and evaluate what should be kept, replaced and upgraded.
If you’ve been thinking about moving from local servers to the cloud, you can consider including this in the project.
However, the server migration will be another project that should be scheduled way before the physical move to ensure everything is running smoothly.
