Xpress Relocation excel in the Phillip Sully Mega Move Weekend

As part of our work with the Open University, Xpress Relocation recently spent a weekend on campus for an office move.

Xpress Relocation staff were brought in to facilitate the movement of all existing furniture within the ground floor of Philip Sully Building on the Open University Campus in Milton Keynes to install more desks to allow further staff recruitment within the departments.

Their work didn’t go unnoticed, as the Open University were so impressed they let us know how happy they were with the move.

Karen Russell, Space Planning Manager for the Open University, says:

“The Phillip Sully move this weekend has been such a labour intensive, complex move with all the floor boxes, furniture shuffles and working around IT staff and other contractors, it’s definitely been one of the largest I’ve ever done! On top of that we’ve moved Credit Transfer over from the AT Building as well.

I wanted to thank you for all your hard work in co-ordinating and managing these moves.  It worked very well with John co-ordinating the CTC move and Carl is as always a GODSEND when it comes to co-ordinating the ‘mechanics’ on these complex moves and he has done a fantastic job in communicating with all concerned, in particular with Central IT staff, making sure everyone knows what he’s going to do and when they can do their thing.

Also, Carl, Jenson, and Darren all did a dynamite job on moving all the floor boxes and we all know how many there were!!

I would also like to thank all the following guys for all their sterling, hard work and support, working double shifts and being extremely efficient in making sure everything got done from Friday evening right through to the end of play today!

Peter Grimes, Darren Bendall, Jenson Taylor, Barry Pearman, Danny Warren, Chris Carrigan, Paul Richardson, Alex Craw, Dave Millar and all the temporary staff who have been involved – I couldn’t have managed this without you all.”


The Phillip Sully building at the Open University is named after a former OU student of the same name, who completed a total of 61 courses at OU, including a Masters, PhD and two degrees. He is also the father of former Big Brother contestant Eugene Sully.
