Business Moves Group to relocate Leeds Building Society

Apr 30 | 2021

Workplace change and relocation specialist Business Moves Group (BMG) has won a major relocation contract with Leeds Building Society.

BMG will support the Society with its relocation to a new head office after more than 80 years at its current location. Over 900 staff will be moving to the refurbished building on Sovereign Street, Leeds, with three current sites consolidated into the new space.

BMG will project manage the relocation that includes furniture management, including the recycling of redundant items, moves planning, occupancy management, relocation of IT equipment, and post-move assistance.

Andy Gerrard, Project Manager at BMG said, “Office relocations represent a perfect time to integrate change management initiatives. The need for workplace change brought about by the pandemic makes this move extremely timely. We’re delighted to have been trusted with the task by Leeds Building Society and look forward to a successful move.” 

Mike Briffett, Project Director at Leeds Building Society commented, “This office move represents an exciting new chapter in our long history and it’s essential that we have an expert partner to help everything go smoothly. We were thoroughly impressed by the experience, knowledge and professionalism of the BMG team and can’t wait to move into our new home.”

Leeds Building Society was founded in 1875 to help people save and enable them to buy the home they want.  After almost 150 years of operation, that purpose remains the same today.
