Check out Swindon’s Workshed, a workspace for entrepreneurs, pioneers, and creative thinkers to innovate, connect and grow. 

First launched in 2018, The Workshed is a Swindon Borough Council initiative and part of an ambitious plan to regenerate Brunel’s Carriage Works and the wider Swindon economy. 

Through continued investment The Workshed has attracted a number of heritage and educational institutes to the building which creates a unique business incubator. It is the home of the Royal Agricultural Society Heritage Institute and the new Innovation Centre for Applied Sustainable Technologies (iCAST) a unique partnership of expertise which includes the Universities of Bath and Oxford, the High-Value Manufacturing Catapult’s Sustainability Partnership, innovation experts SETsquared, the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership and investors. 

The Workshed offers co-working space, individual offices for 1-15 people, workpods, meeting rooms and a modern event space which buzzes with the power of the past and the energy of today. It also offers a virtual business office, providing a prestigious address without the expense of a physical office. 

Genna Spiller is Centre Manager at The Workshed, she said, “We currently have a range of office space available from 150 sq.ft- 750 sq.ft. We offer a flexible proposition allowing you to upscale, downsize, or even end your contract without fuss. Our simple, attractive pricing and stress-free contracts are designed to give you what you need when you need it.”

The Workshed’s facilities include:

•1 giga superfast fibre

Genna, added, “Now we’re all getting back to the office, we can’t wait to see our co-working and communal spaces full of life and energy again. Some great conversations and new collaborations have happened as a result of people meeting at The Workshed.”
