Introduction
a. Project overview
The project is about the relocation of the Head Office teams to Welwyn Garden City which will be followed by the removal and the clearance from the previous Tesco’s head office located at Chestnut. The relocation is needed because of the necessity for the cost reduction and reduction of manpower. (Haapakangas et al. 2018).The business relocation will help in lowering the operation cost. The cost will alone determine that the business is in profitable mode or is losing money every month.
The entire project will involve the refu
ishment of the Welwyn Garden City workplace and then moving of the furniture, IT and AV covering around 6300 positions over 5300 staffs and that to across 45 different departments. This entire remanufacturing will save around UK Sterling 315000.
In this scenario the project manager needs to handle the relocation process of the entire project and the proper budgeting of the entire project as that could serve the purpose of setting up of new office which is meant to reduce the cost handled by the company and further to ensure that the work should not get hampered.
Project includes studying existing structure, planning, budgeting, evaluating new proposed infrastructure and then finally implementing it. It is expected to complete the assigned project within duration of 3 months and under the assigned budget from the finance team.
