Co-Working Hot Desks

The Workstation is an evolving network of business centres with co-working spaces and hot desks in key market commuter towns close to London. There are currently seven sites located in Abingdon, Beaconsfield, Harpenden, Hemel Hempstead, Radlett, St Neots and St Albans with plans to expand the network further across the UK.

The objective of these shared office centres is to give early stage businesses the opportunity to work in inspiring co-working space within an active community of entrepreneurs, freelancers and professionals. Each business centre has private offices which are available to businesses should they wish to expand.

Members can add additional services such as a business mailbox, lockers, printing facilities, meeting rooms and event space. Workstation members are also invited to the active calendar of events which occur within the community.

This solution is ideal for start-ups and existing businesses looking to enhance and develop their business presence without the commitment of a traditional office.
