Vision co-working spaces logo Vision Co-working Spaces

Vision Co-working Spaces are a serviced office provider, turning away from the traditional office space environment. Vision offer a full turnkey solution for any size business – from entrepreneurial start-ups to established businesses valued at £50 million. Vision’s main aim is to create a working environment that inspires people to work hard and help progress, not only themselves, but the company and industry that they are involved with.

All offices are surrounded with acoustic strengthened glass which has part obscuration for a level of privacy, whilst feeding businesses with natural light. Vision’s building is designed with large windows throughout the building to catch the natural light, with fresh air being sporadically released across the two floors to keep staff energised and productive. There are numerous positive colours in rest areas which release endorphins within the human body to help deal with well-being and stress at work.

Vision’s offices

  • Co-working office: These offices involve a shared working environment but unlike in a typical office environment, those in the co-working spaces are usually not employed by the same organisation or company. Workers still work independently but share the same values and are interested in the synergy of sharing work spaces alongside one another. Co-Working also offers a solution to the problem of isolation that many people experience whilst working at home.
  • Private office: A single office space with easy move-in as Vision offer an overnight move from staff’s previous place of work to Vision’s building, with instant Internet/Phone access.
  • Virtual office: This service provides a business address without a physical dedicated office space. Mail handling/Forwarding is dealt with the in-house receptionist, always handled in a professional and secure manner. Telephone service has the option to answer calls using the business name and if out of the office or simply using the virtual office service, call forwarding is available.
