Location


London, UK

Overview


Rathbones had recently migrated all of its critical systems into an off-site Data Centre facility with the help of PTS, and was at this stage looking towards a new location for its office in London. This would represent the largest project of its kind for the Client, encompassing a two-floor 44,0002 ft fit-out, which would require a complete restructuring of its workspace – and the design of over 26 state-of-the-art meeting, training and dining rooms equipped with full Audio Visual and presentation capabilities.

Highlights


  • IT expertise for every aspect of the corporate relocation with flawless end-to-end project management
  • A modern workspace conducive to collaborative work, bringing together once disparate teams onto one floor
  • A full suite of state-of-the-art AV and video conferencing facilities
  • Office-wide infrastructure upgrade
  • Faster and more resilient data links
  • Early availability of the main Comms rooms

“PTS provided Rathbones with the expert resource we needed to procure and manage the AV and IT infrastructure for our new London Headquarters. PTS was a vital interface between the business and the main contractors and we were able to benefit a lot from the structured programme management of the various IT workstreams. The highly detailed project tracking and reporting were invaluable in the successful execution of the actual migration and gave our executive team excellent visibility of the project progress from start to finish.”- Muneer Alam, IT Programme Director

Summary


On the weekend of the move, the project management team came together to ensure that all IT aspects were in order. This involved coordination with the Rathbones team both in London and Liverpool. Utilising PTS’ weekend ‘playbook’, a document in which rigorous testing and escalation procedures are mapped out, the migration was completed on time with zero failure, with PTS in full control of IT streams, retaining full confidence of the Client.
