The Brief

The Archbishops' Council provides the Church of England with a focus for leadership, executive responsibility and a forum for strategic thinking and planning. In consultation with the House of Bishops, the Council oversees the Church's financial needs and resources and suggests priorities for General Synod approval. The Council manages an investment portfolio, held mostly in company shares and urban and rural property, to financially support the Church of England's work.

Active has used its excellent skills in move management and refurbishment projects to build a strong relationship with the Church of England which has lasted for over a decade. An initial contract in 2000 to relocate 250 staff from multiple sites to Church House has led to managing various moves and the environmental recycling of surplus office furniture – and this is a unique, ongoing commission.

The Solution

Every year Active completes the temporary relocation with a consistent level of professionalism and expertise which has won praise from the most senior project managers.

In their own words:

“Active provides an excellent service. Their project managers have excellent interpersonal skills and are trustworthy and reliable. Moving the large volume of files that the church bodies hold in their offices was a major logistical issue."

"Our challenge was to relocate an office suite and 122 people with very short notice. The project included office construction, fit out and the physical migration from our old site to new. What stood Active FM apart from the competition was their holistic approach to the entire project and they became partners rather than contractors. They approached the migration with flexibility and a customer centric view rather than dictating terms to us. As a result we not only completed the move on time but also within budget and to a far high standard of quality than I believe we could have achieved had we engaged with some of the alternatives who quoted. So, it’s a well done to Active FM and I very much look forward to working with you again in the future."
