Planning a Successful Lab and Facility Relocation

Originally presented on June 9, 2021

Facility relocation projects can be daunting, with risks and unknowns around every corner. Building a project team with internal stakeholders and industry experts will help you navigate the unknown and successfully complete the project. This team will handle the move and all its components, allowing for a smooth and successful operation. With routine meetings between the internal and external stakeholders along with onsite scopes, walkthroughs, and progress checks, you will ensure all vendors (furniture and equipment movers, HAZMAT movers, and the decommission vendor) are on the same page. Having the right team in place will make sure things aren’t overlooked, such as closing out all EHS permits, plans, and programs at your old facility and setting up protocols at your new facility. To close out the move, you will have to report on the decontamination and decommissioning at the old lab space. With the right team in place and proper planning, you will avoid common pitfalls and successfully manage the relocation project.
