Lisa Rutherford

During 2011 and 2012 Lisa successfully planned and managed the return of Collections and staff to the refurbished National Library in Wellington. This project was possibly the largest volume move ever undertaken in New Zealand and was hugely complex, requiring incredible attention to detail to meet the client's exacting standards and to ensure the protection of the priceless collections.

Lisa also planned and managed the relocation of approximately 2500 Inland Revenue staff in Wellington. Staff were originally accommodated within nine CBD buildings and were relocated into three CBD buildings. The move included a large Call Centre, evidentiary material, a Library, large holdings of records and a significant amount of re-use furniture.

More recently Lisa has managed projects for Inland Revenue (Upper Hutt and Wellington CBD Restack Project), Spark, Stuff, Trustpower, BNZ, Chorus and Tauranga City Council.
