The hybrid workplace generally allows employees the opportunity to fit work around their lives, rather than structuring work around fixed hours logged into an office. For many employees (and employers) it’s an optimal balance of productive work with reduced stress and less commuting.

There are many easy ways to book a meeting room:
You can absolutely bring clients in for a meeting, we do ask that you book a meeting room if you plan on meeting longer than 30 minutes.
You need to register your visitor on our portal or mobile application so we can notify you when they arrive and also know that he/she is your guest. This is a simple or impressive process for your visitors too.
Or they can do when they arrive on tablet kiosk in reception.
Sometimes these meetings can be hot and distract others around you if you are in common areas.
So we ask you do do these meetings in your Private Office if you have one OR if you don’t want to do it in there and if you are a Coworking Member, please book our “Small Meeting Room” for this. Small meeting room is very cheap compared to large one and you have many meeting dollars in your account that will expire each month. This way, we can keep everyone happy.
Please, do NOT!
These rooms designed for single persons to work and focus on what hey are doing. These pods are not sound proof. Any loud noise you will make in there will echo in half of our office. While this will remove your privacy, it will also interrupt all around that area and other single private booths.

We like to think so. But the truth is each business has their own circumstances where coworking may be a worthwhile investment or not. If you work remotely or are looking for an alternative workspace you may be questioning how your environment affects your productivity. For some, the flexibility to work in sweat pants or do laundry between calls is great, however it has its drawbacks. It may be mundane, and bouncing ideas off your dog might not work. For others in a small to medium-sized team it may be impractical to rent an entire office and fit it out yourself. Luckily we take flexible working at face value and can accommodate customization depending on your preferences — usually. If you’re ready to consider different options for your workspace, a strong possibility could be in West Quay Offices.
Think of it like a gym membership. Some people come in once a month while others may come in 7 days a week. No matter what your preference, we have different options to suit your needs. On any given day there will be a seat for you with all the amenities to get the most out of your working day; like super fast wifi, printing, unlimited coffee and front of house services for your guests (to name a few).
Many. The overhead costs of a fully equipped office are taken care of, superior fit out with premium desks and chairs for use, flexibility to scale your business up or down, robust health and safety policy and an established company culture.
We believe in flexible working, and that means being flexible ourselves. To support businesses and our vision we do not lock members into any long term leases or contracts. Most memberships are on a month to month basis with a 30 day notice period respectively. Please get in touch to find out more.
