Following the success of the space utilisation study we undertook, Johnsons commenced with the internal restack within the Severn Trent Centre at St. John’s Street. This involved the restack of circa 340 staff across five floors in the building completed over two phases involving the following:

Project planning and management for the restack of STC 3rd, 5th and 7th floor

Supply of relocation teams to complete the restack over two phases

Supply of crate hire to facilitate the restack activity over two phases

Liaising with key client stakeholders/move champions

Creation of block and stack plan

Attending project set up meeting to conduct project kick-off and agree final scope/project governance

Pre-relocation planning/scheduling/meeting days

Post-move/lessons learnt liaison

Relocation of confidential filing

Providing specific move guides with all key tasks/information/dates to ensure all pre-move activities are correctly completed by Severn Trent Water staff

Completing detailed and full relocation scheduling and timeline baseline for all relocation activity to seamlessly follow

Ensuring all resources/crates are booked in line with the project requirements

Ensuring regular communication and single point of contact with Severn Trent Water

Project managing the internal IT and cable management team

Facilitating the staff feedback process


To ensure the move went as smoothly as possible, we provided STW with a dedicated Move Manager for the duration of the move.

Their main responsibilities were:

BUG (Business User Group) meeting with all Move Champions. Key outputs to ensure that everyone understands the packing and labelling strategy and Q&A regarding the relocation process

Engagement with circa 6-9 Severn Trent Move Champions

Detailed planning with each Move Champion for each of their team that is relocating (IT set-up, height-adjustable desk, filing audit/requirements, DSE chairs etc.)

Mapping of all IT/height adjustable desks/phones/storage on to floor plans for use by Severn Trent FM/Scenario/Johnsons move teams

Planning and managing the sequencing of team relocations over two phases


Overall the project was a success, with Johnsons staff completing the large relocation process in the given time frame. The Move Manager in attendance throughout the weekend project ensured the relocation ran seamlessly, attending the site two days prior to check everything was prepared for the move.
