What is the difference between a dedicated desk and a hot-desk?2024-05-07T17:53:15+00:00

A dedicated desk, also known as a fixed desk, is exclusively assigned to you throughout your rental period. You have the freedom to personalise it according to your preferences, including leaving monitors and stationary items. Additionally, you’ll have access to your own lockable pedestal for storing personal belongings securely.

On the other hand, a hot desk could be a desk, booth, or stool available for use for a few hours or a day. It’s ideal for those working with laptops and who appreciate the dynamic environment, offering the excitement of sitting next to different people each day.

What is hot-desking?2024-05-07T17:47:59+00:00

Hot desking is a versatile workspace arrangement that allows employees to use available desks as needed, without assigned seating. This system is employed in both flexible and private office spaces, aiming primarily to minimise costs, optimise space utilisation, and foster collaboration among colleagues or different businesses.

How much does a shared office space cost?2024-05-07T17:42:47+00:00

We price our office space by seats, for example a two-person office would be from £690+ vat per month

What is the pricing structure for private office spaces?2024-05-07T17:37:40+00:00

Our private off desk prices start at £345 +VAT per month depending on location.

Can you have an office if you’re a freelancer?2024-05-07T17:33:21+00:00

Certainly, having an office is accessible to anyone, depending on individual needs.

If you require privacy and plan to work from the same location daily, a fixed office would be the most suitable choice for you. However, if you only need to be in the office three times a week, a dedicated desk might be more appropriate.

How do co-working spaces compare to working from home?2024-05-07T17:19:56+00:00

Working from home used to be the preferred mode of work for many individuals. However, with the onset of Covid-19, both employees and employers discovered that the day-to-day WFH routine might not always foster the highest levels of productivity or motivation.

Co-Working environments have emerged as a solution, enhancing creativity and productivity through meticulously designed spaces. These spaces feature elements such as ample natural light, biophilic design, background music, efficient air conditioning, secluded areas for contemplation, on-site coffee shops, recreational zones, rooftop terraces, private phone booths, well-equipped meeting rooms, and communal areas that often include cosy booths for networking and collaboration. Additionally, weekly happy hours add to the vibrant atmosphere.

At Co-Space, we provide these amenities across our various venues, aiming to ignite inspiration among our members and guests.

Is renting office space treated as operating a lease?2024-05-07T17:16:00+00:00

Renting office space provides greater convenience, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. While there’s still a contractual agreement in both scenarios, shared office space arrangements offer more flexibility compared to traditional lease agreements. Shared office space agreements typically range from 6 to 24 months, whereas leases often require a minimum commitment of 5 years.

Moreover, renting private office space entails a smaller upfront cost, usually only requiring a deposit equivalent to 1-3 months’ rent. The space comes fully furnished and decorated, eliminating the need for additional setup. At Co-Space, we prioritise flexibility tailored to you and your business requirements.

What is better a traditional work space or virtual office space?2024-05-07T17:08:50+00:00

This all depends on your business requirements. Do you and your team need a space to work from collaboratively? Answered yes, Co-Working space would be ideal. We offer day passes where you can join together and get work done.

Is your business performed without the need to work from the office but you’d like a specific address local to you or one that benefits your business brand? Then a virtual office would be a great option. Some spaces, like Co-Space, offer you discounts on using the space that you are virtual from so that you can benefit from using the space as well.
