Overview

Our partnership with this San Francisco based public utility company involved planning the relocation of two buildings: the Public Utility Warehouse and Yard move and office building move. We worked closely with the warehouse fixture vendor as well as the moving company and drayage company to relocate large items and the yard and many parts within the two warehouses. This project began with meetings between key business units such as Metering, Street Lighting, High Voltage, and Engineering. During these meetings, we assessed materials and equipment inventory for relocation and existing Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FF&E) for reuse.
