Clean Kitchen Policy

The kitchen should be kept clean at all times, please leave it as you would like to find it, please stack your dirty cups/plates in the dishwasher and wipe down all services. Should the cups/plates etc in dishwasher be clean please empty it to insure there is not a build up of used cups/plates in or around the sink and kitchen area.

Heating Of Collaborative Area

Please note the heating is controlled centrally using programmed settings and should not be modified to ensure we maintaining a green office

Heating Settings

Mon to Fri 08:30 – 16:30pm

Temp 21 deg

Heating is off outside of these times

What happens if you find the temperature too cold or too hot

Based on the shape and size of the office, different parts will experience slightly different temperature. Whilst the heating temp is set at 21 degrees, this temperature is set at the height of the heating units and the air is circulated by fans, therefore you may experience a slightly lower temperature at different locations.

If there are consistent issues please use the Contact Page on this webpage to let the property manager know and they will investigate.

What happens if I am working or at an event outside of the set hours and the area is too cold.

Please raise the issue with management who can temporarily overwrite the set heating schedule by increasing the temperature on the control units. We would ask that when you leave the office space you make sure to click the off button to ensure the heating turns off, as if in boost mode it will remain on until the next timed on event, e.g. if boosted at 18:00 and not turned off, it will stay on all night (or all weekend if on a Friday) until it resets at 06:30 the following morning. As you can imagine energy usage for such a large area is substantial and the strong preference is that the controls are not interfered with wherever possible, and always turned off after use. This helps reduce operating costs substantially and make the building more green. Benefits we hope to be able to pass on to our tenants in keeping rates low.

Use of kitchen

The Kitchen is available to use by all Dedicated Desk members with free freshly ground coffee. Please always leave the kitchen as you would like to find it, keeping all surfaces clean

The Kitchen includes fridge, dishwasher, microwave, delph and cutlery and large dining table to have shared lunches together.


The coworking space is similar to any professional modern open plan office, and co-workers are expected to make calls, have meetings etc as normal. That said co-workers should be considerate of noise so that others are not overly disturbed, and we have provided this section to provide some guidance to help its smooth operation.

  • We have provided 3 X Phone Booths for single person meetings with their laptops/phones which can be used for online meetings or long calls, please consider using if making a longer call.
  • If meeting a group please consider booking the 2 X Meeting Rooms or using the 3 X Meeting Booths provided.
  • We request that coworkers use headphones rather then their computer speakers, (including in meeting booths).
  • When using headphones please consider using a single ear piece rather then both if in open plan area, you may not be concious of how loud you are taking especially if using large headphones.
  • If you have a specific concern with noise but do not feel comfortable dealing with it directly yourself please contact us on and we will do our best to address in a confidential manner.
