BMG secures win with Leeds Beckett University

Office relocation and workplace change company, Business Moves Group (BMG), has won a two-year contract with the option to extend for a further two years with Leeds Beckett University.

BMG will be supporting Leeds Beckett on the relocation of campus buildings, as well as the redistribution and recycling of redundant furniture. BMG’s environmental and sustainability solution was a key determinant in Leeds Beckett’s decision. The service includes a full structured report of the furniture that is to be removed from the campus buildings, where it has gone, and, if it has been recycled, how that piece of furniture will be broken down.

A key upcoming project for the university is a move across to the Headingly and Civic Quarter campus. This will be supported by BMG’s fully in-house team of IT managers, move managers, porters, and security teams.
BMG’s established success in the education sector, with client references, was a key factor in the successful bid. BMG also offered the most comprehensive bid across Leeds’s scoring system, ticking all the relevant boxes.

Sarah Beckett, Category Manager in Procurement of Estates, Leeds Beckett University, said: “We are delighted to be working with Business Moves Group as we begin our work relocating to our new campus buildings. We were particularly impressed with their account management and the structures they will implement to make the move successful. We are only a small team that look after a large campus estate, so their integration with us and adapting their practices to suit our situation is extremely promising.

“Additionally, their sustainability offering was a key factor in our choice, as we want to make this transition as eco-friendly as possible. BMG’s was the only bid that covered such a wide grasp of the environmental aspects of this work.”

Graham Hardy, Business Development Director for the North, Business Moves Group, commented: “Thank you to the Leeds team for entrusting us with your campus move. We are extremely pleased to have been chosen for or extensive service offering, and are looking forward to getting stuck in. As a national business with a hub in Leeds, we are pleased to be helping this local business and to be creating a great space for students and staff to thrive in.”

Webinar: How to create an ethical supply chain in FM

Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?

For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.

FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.

Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:

  • The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
  • How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
  • Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
