Singtel - Optus

Optus engaged Space Smart directly to undertake a detailed storage audit of their existing premises at North Sydney, Chatswood, and Gordon in Sydney in 2006.

In mid 2007 Optus relocated 6500 staff to a new 5 building purpose-designed Campus in Macquarie Park, Sydney. Space Smart worked closely with the client to ensure that each floor had sufficient storage space for the business units occupying it.

We conducted a complete audit of the current file holdings for each business unit and submitted a detailed report and Gap Analysis.
The implementation of the report recommendations over the subsequent 12 months before the relocation ensured that Optus only moved documents and records that needed to be retained on site at the new location.

Another part of our role in this project was to develop and co-ordinate file culling and clean up day strategies and activities (including provision of temporary staff), to ensure all identified business groups were ready for relocation well in advance of the move date. A 30% reduction in hard copy storage was achieved in targeted business units, realising additional space in the new facility for growth.
