Coworking and shared office spaces are currently on the rise in the business world. As more companies have a demand for this flexible way of working at a reduced cost, we at Flexspace have responded by offering coworking space at five of our locations.
There are many advantages to working in a coworking space, we’ve covered a few key aspects below.
Also known as a shared office, a coworking space gives SMEs, entrepreneurs and freelancers access to all the facilities and perks of a conventional office space, without all the additional costs that go with it.
Coworking spaces are usually open plan surroundings where a client would pay for the space they need, giving them access to a mix of private and communal areas. These spaces offer a more relaxed work environment with an open plan, ‘come and go as you please’ informal working environment.
One of the common benefits to renting out a coworking space is the cost of it. For those that are just starting off their business, this kind of work environment can be very cost effective. Many businesses at their initial stages find that lower rent costs offer the ability to free up capital for investment in value-generating assets. Flexible coworking environments tend to be more affordable and also less stressful before, during and after a business takes up a space.
Many coworking tenants find themselves being able to work and network at the same time. Working in a collaborative space with likeminded businesses and people can help free up thinking and give exposure to new ideas. The collective nature of co-working spaces is ideal as it provides networking opportunities and gives tenants the chance to start new conversations with everyone from potential clients to business partners.
Coworking spaces focus on like-minded communities which offer your business greater productivity. Design inspired office space settings also work to foster efficiency in a co working environment. For employees there are obvious benefits, with fewer hours spent commuting, greater independence and flexibility in their work. These spaces are designed for the benefit of employees. Alongside happier staff, shared workspace encourages innovation through exposure to new ideas and ways of working.
Flexspace offers coworking spaces at Bolton, Dunfermline, Harrogate, Newton Aycliffe and Peterborough. All of our coworking spaces are situated within a business park, located off the main motorway networks offering easy access, and close to different local amenities. These spaces also come with free parking and security to all clients.
We offer a minimum of 6 months tenancy for all our coworking tenants. Clients can move in on the day they sign and begin working immediately. They are also able to book a meeting room at any time (depending on availability) at a minimum cost if private space is required.
All coworking spaces at Flexspace come furnished. Once clients feel like they have outgrown their coworking space they have the advantage to keep the same business centre address and expand to a Flexspace office.

Flexspace have helped me turn my little dream into a profitable reality! Being a small business owner looking for premises can sometimes be daunting but Loraine and the Flexspace team helped me with every step in finding the perfect solution for my business and I couldn’t be more grateful.
The team go above and beyond to look after their tenants and nothing is every too much trouble. Premises are clean, well maintained and I always feel extremely safe when I’m at work even on those dark winter nights! I have highly recommended Flexspace to fellow business owners – a hidden gem in Peterborough!
Our offices in Blackpool are easily accessible for the people we support, some of whom are in wheelchairs, there is a ramp to the entrance door and disabled facilities. Our offices are nicely decorated, comfortable and affordable.
Our Area Manager is very helpful and readily available should we have any queries or problems. The public areas are kept clean, safe and presentable. She goes over and above the call of duty for the clients.
I have enjoyed renting from Flexspace for the last 3 years and hopefully will be there for a good few years to come. Found the staff very helpful and easy to get on with.
Excellent service, the Centre team are happy to assist with meeting rooms at short notice. They ensure that repairs are carried out quickly. I needed several new sockets in my room and these were provided very quickly with no inconvenience to myself.
The staff are friendly, professional and knowledgeable and nothing is ever a problem.
Flexspace Dunfermline has had a big impact on the growth of my business over the last 3 years. Offering the ability to offer in-house training to clients with the use of the meeting room facilities. The team always ensure that the rooms are set up to the exact requirements I need to deliver the training to my clients. From equipment set up to the supply of refreshments to my delegates.
Having a dedicated team onsite that are always on hand to assist with anything from reception to administration is a real benefit to my business. The staff are always very approachable and nothing is ever too much for them when I ask for their assistance.
RDM Group has occupied buildings on the Bilton Industrial Estate for over 22 years and we have seen many owners in our time. In 2007 ‘Flexspace’ acquired the estate and through their resident manager, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the overall operation of the estate together with a continual investment and improvement program into the buildings, security and facilities which makes the estate an extremely good place for our company to be located.
Big thanks to you and Alan for your efficient handling of the whole process.
Many thanks for your support in our move into new office space, everything has been really smooth and easy even down to ensuring locks were changed and secure.
The facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean throughout and it’s so helpful for us to have access to additional rooms for booking for training events when we need it. We are so glad we made the move into a really pleasant and well maintained working environment.
