When looking for your perfect office space you are bound to want to know all there is to know before you make the leap, so we have put together a list of all 12 of the most frequently asked questions, we have been asked so far… If we have missed any, please get in touch and a member of staff will be able to try and answer your questions; We also provide viewings so please book an appointment if you wish to view the business centre.
1. What is your minimum commitment time for both coworking and private offices?
We offer a minimum one-month commitment with no deposits; we just require your first month’s rent and then this will be taken on a rolling monthly direct debit until you decide to cancel (We also offer discounts for longer leases – 6, 12- and 24-month commitments). See our private offices.
2. Are business rates included?
Yes, business rates are included, and we handle all of that for you.
3. Can we decorate our office?
You are welcome to hang whiteboards/pictures and decorate your office how you would like, all we ask is that you do not make any permanent changes to the office such as painting or drastically changing the design.
4. Is there ample on-site parking?
We have parking spaces at both the front of the building and a large car park at the back, we prefer our members and visitors to use the rear parking not only is it monitored using CCTV but later during the development we will have an Automatic Rising Arm Barrier for added security.
5. Can we work over the weekends?
Yes, the workspace is open 24/7 by key fobbed access so you are free to come in whenever you would like…we just ask that you do not sleep here! It may seem like a strange request, but it can happen, and we do not blame you if you are working into the early hours to complete a project – we just ask you have a coffee on hand.
6. Are there networking opportunities?
We have monthly and quarterly networking events, these include a member’s informal buffet, a BBQ (when the weather permits) and a lovely 5-course sit-down meal with wine tasting; These are just some of the member events we have done in the past and we are always open to suggestions.
7. When will phase two be starting?
Our plans to develop a further 8-9 offices and to complete our breakout area will commence August 2021 with hopes to be complete by the end of the year.
8. Are tea and coffee included?
Yes, within both the co-working and private office package, our range of teas and our bean to cup coffee machine which serves all your favourites including Expresso, Flat White, Mocha, Latte, and Hot Chocolate to name a few and did we mention is all complimentary.
9. Do we have to pay for office cleaning?
No, cleaning is included – this includes a daily clean of the offices by a professional cleaning company between the hours of 6-7 pm. The communal areas are kept clean throughout the day and deep cleans are also done every night too.
10. Can I hire the meeting room even if I am not a member of McCue House?
Yes, our meeting rooms are open to hiring by the public, you can contact us on 01472 287766 to book. Our members do take priority booking, but the calendar will become public for viewing in the next couple of weeks.
11. Do you have hot-desking options?
With demand increasing for hot-desking, and whilst we still have some office space available, we can currently cater for those businesses seeking daily hot-desking and depending on the uptake will determine if this becomes something we offer on a longer-term basis, please contact us for more information.
12. Can we keep our existing telephone number when we move in?
Yes, we can port in your current line, our IT team will be able to deal with the transition for you. Each office has its own separate VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) which can be extended so if you wish to take two offices or more, we can connect them for you, so they are all on the same network.
Don’t just take our word for it comes to see for yourself...
