Aegis is a leading private security and risk management company with offices in the UK, USA, Iraq, Afghanistan and Bahrain. Its security and advisory divisions provide a comprehensive service covering the globe, combining the proven track record and expertise that enable the company's clients – multi-nationals, governments, international agencies and many others – to minimise risk and maximise opportunity. The company was particularly concerned about transporting its fine art collection and some unusually heavy safes.
Active dismantled and re-assembled workstations, meeting room and boardroom furniture, and a giant storage wall for the 75-strong workforce. As part of the move, Active decommissioned and recommissioned all IT services and AV equipment. The team also recycled excess office furniture, as well as waste electrical and electronic equipment. As the Active team has specialist training, moving the fine artworks and specialised office equipment was accomplished just fine.
The move was conducted with extreme efficiency and exceeded the expectations of the operations manager.
In their own words:
“The team were highly professional and extremely helpful during the move. They always conducted themselves with extreme efficiency. They were calm and organised under pressure and the support they gave was above and beyond our expectations. I can confidently say if it wasn't for them we would still be in a complete mess now – a good two months on. On behalf of the company, I'd like to wholeheartedly thank them for their work."
