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

As a member of Build Workspace, based at Build Studios, you will become part of a network of fellow built environment professionals – a community of people to collaborate and grow your business with.

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

We support new companies in the sector with ongoing access to education and training to help their business grow.

By basing your business with us, you are directly supporting the charitable work of Build Studios. All profits generated from the workspace are used to support Build Studios’ education, outreach and access programmes.

Our members are asked to commit to participating in Build Studios’ outreach programmes in a way that best suits the aims and skillset of their business.
