Watchdog was engaged by FXI to manage the turnkey relocation of their corporate headquarters from Linwood, PA to Media, PA.
FXI is a leading producer of polyurethane products for bedding, furniture, and automotive materials. Their products include finished goods, sub-assemblies, services and raw materials, and they have plants across the country, with their headquarters in Media, PA.
Watchdog was engaged by FXI to project manage the turnkey relocation of their corporate headquarters from Linwood, PA to Media, PA. The timeline for this relocation was extremely tight and focused. In order for the move to run smoothly, they contracted Watchdog to be the owners rep. and to represent their needs to the landlord and ensure that all the timelines were met. Watchdog worked closely with the landlord’s project manager, scheduled project team meetings, monitored budget and schedule and provided critical and strategic development plans. Through Watchdog’s involvement with the project, the construction schedule was greatly improved, from the originally proposed 18-20 weeks to the actual schedule of 12-14 weeks.
Since FXI’s project was a turnkey relocation, Watchdog did not provide as many services as we usually do for a client. We did manage the procurement of vendors, and represented FXI in all lease and contract negotiations. We also managed the relocation from their old office to the new space, and oversaw all FF&E work.
