The Benefits of Build Studios

While co-working spaces are common, you’re unlikely to find more than a handful of people from your sector in each.

Here at Build Studios there is a network of people just like you – to work, pitch, socialise and collaborate with. You can also keep up to date with changes in the industry through our regular events programme.

We offer a range of membership packages – whether you are an entrepreneur in need of a flexible deal once or twice a week, to the start-up in need of a full-time desk for five or six employees.

Choose from fixed, fixed-flex and flexible desk options.

Clients and guests are always welcome, and we offer a range of business support services, including model-making and 3D printing.

You don’t need to worry about business rates, utilities and cleaning – they’re all included – and for a small fee individual phone lines can be installed too.

There is secure cycle storage, lockers and free tea and coffee.

Values

Build Studios is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong set of core values.

Affordability

Waterloo has a shortage of affordable workspace. We carefully design and price our services to make ourselves as accessible as possible to new companies in the built environment sector.

Support

We support new companies in the sector with ongoing education, training, access to mentoring and tools to help their businesses grow.

Creativity

We actively design and refine our space, prices and activities to create the right environment for businesses to thrive.

Collective Impact

We build strategic alliances and partnerships with businesses, industry organisations, institutions, referral partners and the public sector to increase our collective impact.

Promotion

We champion our members’ success
and explore ways to create commercial opportunities for businesses we work with.

Problem Solving

We challenge ourselves, and the businesses we connect with, to consider and address urban issues – particularly those in the local area.

Access & Opportunity

We embrace equal opportunities and seek to broaden access to the sector, particularly among young people, through awareness- raising and educational programmes.

Social Values

Build Studios is a not-for-profit company committed to developing a socially responsible built environment sector. Our members embrace the opportunities we give them to work with the community to improve access, aspiration and cohesion.

Our social aims are to:

  • Raise aspirations among young people from Lambeth and to educate and encourage them to work in the built environment sector
  • Improve access to, and diversity within, the sector for ethnic minorities, women, LGBTQ groups and those
    from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds
  • Address key challenges facing the built environment, particularly on a local level, including those identified in the South Bank & Waterloo neighbourhood Plan
  • Develop a dynamic membership and encourage growth through collaboration.
  • Our members are asked to commit to participating in our social value programme in a way that best suits the aims and skillset of their business.
