Welcome to LSM

Since 1991 we’ve been helping a broad range of UK and International clients across Europe improve their performance by providing best practice business relocation, change management, property management and space utilisation solutions.

Our services can be tailored to meet any need – small or large – whether you’re undertaking a business relocation; are growing and need a location consultant to advise where you should be or perhaps you’re downsizing or going through a merger and acquisition and need help with change management. In our ever-changing economic climate we’re also increasingly being asked to consult on property and real estate strategy, as well as suggest improvements to space utilisation and Facility Management.

Our team is headed up by our relocation and location consultant experts Laurence Poultney and Kevin Sheldrick, who have over 60 years’ combined project management and property experience. In turn, they lead a talented team of project managers and designers. Strategic planning underpins all our projects meaning we deliver within programme and budget, whilst minimising risk or disruption to the business.

From relocation project management, to the office move and relocation grant advice

Our services can be scaled up or down to suit your needs. Initially we act as a business and relocation consultant – assessing your needs, running risk management assessments and coming up with the best solution.

Consider how complex your own domestic move is; then think what this might mean when it comes to a business relocation or office move and you throw in a quagmire of other factors. From choosing a location, to buying / building a property, reviewing your employees needs, your physical assets, right through to IT and communications...we can guide you through.

We’ll guide you through the entire process - from initial strategy to design, build or commercial fit out - selecting the services that are right for you. With experience in most industry sectors, our business is broken down into two core divisions: consultancy and project management.

The Team

Our People, Working With You

At the heart of our business are our people. Whenever we embark on a new project, we are careful to select a team that fits not only the requirements of the brief, but that matches your culture as well. We take pride in our people, who we select equally for their industry experience and their friendly, yet professional, approach.

Don't just take our word for it...

LSM gave us sound advice on the choice of our new premises and designed a new office structure and modern working environment which considered the needs of both our business and staff. From close of business Friday night, LSM project managed the relocation and Monday morning we started work without a hitch. As with most companies, our IT side of the project was critical and the biggest risk, LSM project managed all the contractors professionally and were proactive in dealing with issues as and when they arose.

I can say that using LSM for our Newcastle Office move made the entire process extremely painless. LSM's understanding of our requirements as the customer and their attention to detail was absolutely first class.

Crawford and Company - Giles Smallwood, Account Manager

LSM's performance on our project was well in excess of our expectations. Their attention to detail, expertise and management ensured that our new commercial office was completed on time and on budget. The professionalism of the LSM team shone throughout the project, particularly evident when they managed the temporary relocation of the 60 commercial office staff and their subsequent move into the new office, both moves without any downtime. Undoubtedly LSM added value to our project and we look forward to working with them again on future development projects. Thank you LSM
