Office relocation – more than just moving furniture

Today, one of the most complex processes needed to relocate your office, or company’s offices, is installing the IT infrastructure.

Years ago, the main consideration to relocate an office was the office furniture, such as the chairs, desks and filing cabinets. The only IT to worry about was the telephone system.

Few modern offices can operate without IT infrastructure. While a micro-businesses may only need an internet connection and a telephone system, most SMEs and larger businesses have more complex IT infrastructure requirements.

This means there are plenty of IT concerns to address as part of an office relocation.

THE CHESHIRE GARDEN ARE SUPPORTING DEMENTIA CARE AT RHS FLOWER SHOW TATTON PARK

WE’RE SUPPORTING DEMENTIA CARE AT RHS FLOWER SHOW TATTON PARK

After many weeks of hard work and planning, we have just heard that our Show Garden Design has been accepted at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2017!

 

The show garden will tell the story of the journey of dementia from first diagnoses through the various stages of the condition and the increased level of care. As we go forward and live longer, dementia will affect more and more of us, directly or indirectly. The show garden will help support Mid-Cheshire Hospital’s Charity 2017 Dementia Appeal in increasing the awareness of the need to make public spaces dementia friendly and ultimately dementia inclusive.

 

We would like to invite you to help us build the garden in support of charity by contributing to the Dementia Appeal. Your help is appreciated.

 

Link to Sponsorship Packages

 

The show itself runs from 19th to 23rd of July 2017 and features many show gardens and features as well as our dementia garden. Here are a few photos from previous years’ shows below to whet your appetite. See you there!

Warm wishes,

Jane
