Space Solutions, Scotland’s leading workplace design specialist, showed the value of expert planning by carrying out the complete relocation of one of Scotland’s top accountancy firms – in a weekend.
A2+B called in Space Solutions after fearing the business could suffer if there was excessive ‘down time’ involved in the complex move from their original head office at Carden Place to new premises at Queen’s Road in Aberdeen.
Lee Brandie, business manager with Aberdeen-based Space Solutions, said: “This was a major project for our team with a number of specific challenges – not least the fact that we were relocating a total of 150 staff across the city, including all their equipment, furniture and IT systems.
“We understand totally how disruptive moves of this scale can be and we always work on the basis of implementing a plan with the business to keep down time to an absolute minimum. In this case, the company gave the staff the Friday off which meant we were able to start the move on time and ensure it was fully completed over weekend to enable the business to begin afresh on the Monday.
“The success of the relocation – which included completely re-equipping the new office premises on Queen’s Road – is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our expert team.”
Alan Paterson, operations manager with A2+B said that the firm was delighted with how smoothly the move went.

He added “We needed to ensure that there was minimal disruption to our business when it came to relocating our office in Aberdeen. We couldn’t afford to have any lengthy down time caused by our staff not being able to work while all of their equipment was moved to our new office.
“We were very impressed with the way that Space Solutions was able to achieve this challenging target. The move into our new Queens Road office went smoothly and we were delighted that all of the work was done over a single weekend, which meant that it was business as usual on the Monday morning.
“Space Solutions have provided us with an excellent service throughout the relocation and we are absolutely delighted with the results.
“Our new location on Queens Road has a contemporary working environment providing excellent meeting and conference areas, presentation facilities and a mix of open plan and cellular offices – accommodating the entire workforce under one roof.
“Our new home will allow us to continue to give an exceptionally high level of client service, delivered through committed and motivated staff, with easy access to partners as and when needed.”
