Don’t go it alone

Co-working spaces are becoming more and more popular around the world and that’s what we’ve created here. We’re a shared workspace that provides community connections, flexible work spaces and dynamic and interactive environments. We’re home to creative individuals who are involved in research, technology and innovation. All that inspiration in one place makes a dynamic and interactive atmosphere. You might work for yourself but you can still be a part of something bigger.

Desks, open spaces and private offices

Make The Factory your permanent work home, we’ve got desks in shared areas as well as private, walled offices. For casual members, we have desks that you can use when the mood strikes. If you’d like to we also have funky spaces and breakout rooms, lots of spots to meet and talk and places to get down to business.

Rooms for hire – and for free

Tired of meeting clients at a local café or stuffy workroom? We’ve got meetings rooms of all sizes and a comfortable lounge. Residents can use these places for free and non-residents are welcome to enjoy the lounge area during opening hours and can hire meeting rooms or the lounge for events. Our facilities are also free to use for groups who are fighting the good fight and building the innovation community.
