New co-working space on the Bellbrook Estate, Uckfield, is taking shape and the first people to move in will be offered a special introductory rate.

Desks, and high speed wifi, are in place and so is air conditioning, and work will soon be completed on shared breakout area, decking, an outdoor seating area, a conference room, and meeting booths.

Work stations are arranged over two floors above the shared breakout area and kitchen.

Demand

At the moment there’s one separate office but if demand arises for more private space, or for different groupings of desks, that can be arranged.

“We aim to be flexible,” said Mark Hendley, property director for the Edward Baden Group, who has overseen the conversion of accommodation next to Cube Self Storage.

Priority has been given to installing high speed wifi access and ensuring the Cube Co-Working space is comfortable and friendly.

Eco-friendly

It is eco-friendly too. The decking surface will be recycled plastic, the lights are LEDs, and solar panels provide the electricity.

A website for the co-working space is up and running and you can read more there about the facilities available.

Enquiries have already been received from people interested in moving in, and those ready to start work there first will be offered time free of charge.

Discounts

Founder members will also be offered discounts to share feedback about how the space works.

Mark said: “The whole idea is to create a community of like-minded people here who would like to get involved with how the co-working space is managed, alongside our team and make suggestions on, or organise, their own events too.

“The Coronavirus pandemic has delayed the opening but we are pleased now to be ready to welcome our first co-workers.”
