Atkins Building launches flexible workspace solution

Published Thursday, 28 March 2024

The Atkins Building in Hinckley is launching a new flexible workspace solution ‘Co-working’ suitable for a range of work styles. 

Ideally suited for a freelancer waiting for Wi-Fi installation at home or a home worker who has the need for an office but only part time. A start-up business wanting to work in a more professional environment, or a lone worker just needing a change of scene. The new flexible workspace can offer space from a daily rate of just £23 plus VAT and offers access to full office facilities.

Atkins Building’s Co-working space is a warm and welcoming open plan office that's designed to accommodate people from different businesses to undertake their work in a comfortable and professional setting. This service has been created in response to the increase in flexible and hybrid working patterns. A desk is available to book in half day and full day options.

The space and the facilities will be available to view at a launch event on Wednesday 17 April from 9.30am to 11pm. There will also be an opportunity to meet members of the Leicestershire Business Advice Service ( If you wish to attend the launch or would like more information, email
