Covid Update

The BIC team have been working hard to adapt our workspaces to welcome the return of staff and businesses to our centres. In line with social distancing guidelines the meeting room capacities have been reduced. The maximum capacity is shown in the meeting room descriptions and ensures that seating is at least 2m apart. Surfaces are thoroughly cleaned after each meeting room booking, with priority given to the high-touch areas, and alcohol based hand sanitisers are provided at the entrance and inside the meeting room.
