6-Week Decommission Project for Zurich Insurance
Scope: Zurich Insurance moved their 3,000 person staff to a new location, requiring them to move all of their office furniture, systems and equipment within a six week time frame. With the time frame in mind, as well as the amount of square foot space needed to cover, it took over 18,000 labor hours to manage this project.
Wal-Tek's commitment to client: This project established early the importance of affecting local communities and environment in a positive way. With this job scope's mission, it required more labor than usual but more positive aspects in the long run. Working with our client, our team was able to redirect 80% of the product away from landfills. A handful of local organizations benefited from the donated office furniture and office systems.
Installation in Wood Dale, IL
Scope: Wal-Tek's installation team finished over 30 work stations along with ancillary, monitor arms and chairs. The new work stations created a new office environment, revitalizing the company's culture.
Multi-Floor Installation in Burr Ridge, IL
Scope: Wal-Tek project management team worked with our client on the installation of 3 floors of new product which included private offices, workstations and conference rooms.
Wal-Tek's commitment to client: This amount of product going to different floors requires immense communication between our warehouse, trucking and project coordinators.
Reconfiguration in Chicago, IL
Scope: Our client was relocating their workspaces which included twenty workstations. The Wal-Tek crew stored our client's product in our warehouse during their relocation time period. While in our possession, our installation crew fabricated their workstation panels from grey to green to match their brand colors.
Wal-Tek's commitment to client: Reconfiguration gives a new work environment feel without a new office furniture budget. By fabricating their existing workstation panels, our team was able to keep our client within their budget and provide a new workspace.
Multi-Floor Decommission in Chicago, IL
Scope: Wal-Tek keeps the job site itself in mind when creating our job scopes. This building is in the heart of downtown, which required us to make trucking a consideration during our walk-through. With the loading docks under the building, operations had to use trucks that had a maximum height to fit through.
Wal-Tek's commitment to client: To manage our customer's bottom line, our project management team had to control the labor scope regarding how many times the product was handled by our team. Based on the site itself, we were able to prep the furniture on skids to easily load on site and unload at our warehouse. This is one example of our proactiveness on our projects, on how one scope will affect another.
Multi-Phase Relocation & Reconfiguration
With a five phase project, our project coordinators work closely with our client to bring this project to fruition. Consisting of many moving parts, including multiple addresses, each scope was tailored to be flexible based on our client's wants and needs. Any change orders were handled with efficiency to avoid any deadline delay.
Installation at Senior Living Area
Scope: Lounge furniture will consist of fabric and odd-shaped sizes. This requires our Wal-Tek team to take precautionary measures during transport and installation.
Decommission in Rosemont, IL
Scope: Wal-Tek project coordinators worked with our client to decommission several floors of their office building. This included office furniture systems, private offices and interactive meeting rooms.
Wal-Tek's commitment to client: With the help of our project management team, we were able to effectively manage the entire job scope to provide the most competitive quote to our client.
Wal-Tek's commitment as a community leader: At Wal-Tek, our management team understands how crucial business decisions affect our environment. To do our part, all metal, cardboard, paper and other recyclable materials were recycled by our workforce. Product that still had an useful life was donated to local organizations.
Decommission in Chicago, IL
Scope: This project’s scope involved 195,815 square feet of workspace, 500 cubicle workstations, conference tables (including 2 26’. 6 16’ 13 10’) and just under 1,000 chairs.
Wal-Tek's commitment to client: Our client had a deadline date for this to be all finished, which we worked each daily and weekly scope to meat this deadline. Along with the deadline, there was an electrician on site working to remove electrical from the 500 workstations. This allowed our Wal-Tek project management team to tailor those same daily scopes around the electrician to ensure their crew stayed ahead of us.
Auditorium Fixed Seating
Scope: Our installation team also specializes in fixed seating systems. This project involved two site inspections to ensure quality installation and planning.
