Space consolidation

Figuring out where to start your workplace transformation project can be challenging. Our Clean Start® experts help maximise your space through the consolidation of:

  • Paper records
  • Filing cabinets
  • Servers
  • PCs and IT assets
  • Office equipment
  • Cabinets
  • Artwork

From offsite records storage to the secure destruction of documents and IT assets you no longer need, we’ll help create more valuable space for an efficient and effective workplace.

Every document, piece of equipment or technology needs to be managed carefully and securely whether it is being stored, digitised, destroyed or donated. With this in mind, your dedicated Iron Mountain team will conduct an assessment and provide recommendations on how to best proceed. Paper, eWaste, data and non-data bearing devices are carefully destroyed on-site or off-site with a proper chain of custody that is recorded.

Frequently asked questions

What is workplace transformation?

Workplace transformation is the process of creating or improving office spaces to meet the dynamic needs of organisations and a changing workforce. It is a planned activity often led by real estate and facility management professionals in collaboration with leaders throughout the organisation, as well as by service providers like Iron Mountain.

What drives the need for workplace transformation?

Workplace transformation can be driven by changes to your real estate footprint due to organisation expansion or consolidation, merger or acquisition activity, relocation, office closure, or redesigns of an existing office space.

Company initiatives, such as a shift to hybrid, remote work, or improving resource optimisation, can also require organisations to reevaluate their space. If there is dust on it, figuratively or literally, it may be time for a workplace transformation.

What are the risks of workplace transformation?

Years of normal operations and employee turnover can leave the workplace cluttered and disorganised. Confidential information and assets located in filing cabinets, storage closets, and at employee workstations not only creates risk but can also waste valuable space.

While traditional moving companies and real estate service companies can support office closure projects, most don’t have the expertise, trained and vetted employees, or secure chain of custody to correctly handle and manage your organisation’s most valuable assets as you make changes to your real estate.

How can workplace transformation support my organization’s shift to hybrid work practices?

As more organisations allow their workforce the flexibility to combine remote and office work, it is important to ensure a seamless transition to this new way of working.

While working virtually, employees will expect easy and quick access to both digital and physical information, in addition to tools that facilitate seamless collaboration.

Wherever or however they work, it is important that organisations stay in tune with employees’ preferences and industry best practices as they transform their workplace.
