Co-Working and Virtual Space

Open Space Co-Working


To minimise hot desking in the short term, we have capped the maximum number of users in our Open Space co-working area. Each user will be allocated a dedicated desk and will need to pre-book. Cleaning materials are provided at each desk to mitigate the risk of transmission of the virus. Find out more about the measures we have put in place here.


Ideally suited to start-ups, consultants, freelancers and those on the move, Open Space co-working is designed for those who don’t need, or aren’t yet ready for a fixed office space.

From £52 per month, offering high quality facilities and a friendly working environment, Open Space is perfect for collaborative, flexible working.

Tired of working alone, setting up in coffee shops or do you fancy a change of scenery from your home office? Try our co-working space and freshen up your working week.

Wi-fi, coffee and parking come as standard at the BIC and you’ll get access to virtual office services explained below. You’ll also have access to our co-working facilities at Business Central Darlington.

Want to give it a try for free? A complimentary day pass is available so you can see how Open Space works for you.

 “I don’t need an individual office but I do need a professional working environment with access to good facilities like car parking, a café and meeting rooms. Open Space co-working fits perfectly with what I need. It’s also nice to be surrounded by other likeminded businesspeople who work in a similar way.”
