WeSolve Supports Partner with an Extended, Multi-Floor Move

Find out how WeSolve expertly manages an internal office relocation.

The Client

Cushman & Wakefield | NorthMarq (A WeSolve Services Partner)

  • Manages more than 42 million square feet of retail, industrial and office assets
  • Completes over $1 billion in transactions annually
  • Employs more than 450 professionals

Project Summary

Plan, administer and manage a synchronized restack of 1,200 bank employees’ offices while major renovations were underway on multiple floors over a two-year period

The Challenge

When U.S. Bank renewed its lease in the U.S. Bancorp Tower in Portland, Oregon, the company opted to reduce its contracted space by more than 40 percent, consolidating from 15 floors to eight. This triggered phased, major renovations for redesigned:

  • Offices
  • Workstations
  • Conference rooms 
  • Break areas

The Solution

To manage the transition, U.S. Bank enlisted the services of Cushman & Wakefield | NorthMarq, and they in turn contracted with WeSolve for relocation support—primarily in the areas of employee communication
and information security. When construction began, design changes were submitted daily. WeSolve’s on-site project managers tracked the updates and communicated the critical information with all affected parties.

“This was the largest restack in the bank’s history, and WeSolve was in lockstep with our project managers since day one.”

–Bill Freeland Director of Occupier Services Cushman & Wakefield | NorthMarq

In accordance with its proprietary protocol for the transfer of confidential material, WeSolve sourced and supervised file cabinet relocations and computer disconnects. Barcoding helped ensure accurate tracking of the items.
