What is a Decommision?

Decommissions are a critical part of the project lifecycle

When it comes to managing office spaces, one significant aspect often overlooked is the process of decommissioning. In the contract furniture industry, decommission refers to the thorough clearing out of an occupied space, typically one that is being vacated, renovated, or demolished. This process involves the removal of everything within the space – from furniture, fixtures, and equipment, to wiring, personal belongings, contents, trash, and even artwork. It’s a comprehensive clean-out task that requires meticulous planning and execution.

Decommissions are a Critical Part of the Project Lifecycle

Decommissioning plays a pivotal role in the lifecycle of a project, particularly in commercial environments. It usually occurs at the end of a lease period when a business is relocating or shutting down. The task encompasses a wide range of activities, including:

  • Professional Handling: A team of professionals collaborates with the client and property manager to ensure the decommission is completed efficiently, within budget, and according to the building’s regulations.
  • Disassembly and Removal: Specialized project managers and installers work together, often with subcontractors for electrical and data wiring, to disassemble and remove office furniture and associated cabling.
  • Environmentally Responsible Disposal: A significant portion of the items removed during decommissioning is recycled. What cannot be recycled is often donated to charities. Only a minimal fraction, which cannot be recycled or donated, is sent to landfills.
  • Timely Execution: Decommissions are time-sensitive, often needing to be completed within a narrow timeframe. This urgency underscores the importance of having a reliable and communicative partner to handle the process.
