The Hive at Flimwell Park is part of a ground-breaking woodland development offering a natural environment and community atmosphere. Located just off the A21, The Hive offers a unique coworking opportunity including hot desking, private booths, small office spaces and meeting rooms, all with hyper-fast secure internet connectivity, with bilateral up / down 1 gig lease line for super stable internet connectivity.
Even before the challenges of 2020, half of the UK workforce was predicted to be working remotely by the end of this year, read more >>. However, with Covid-19 contributing to this shift in working culture, the number is likely to be much higher as we emerge from lockdown, Although homeworking suits some, for others it can be isolating and demotivating. Coworking offers a flexible way to interact with likeminded individuals, and to share knowledge, skills and develop connections.
Co-founder of The Hive, Emma Wood, commented: “Being passionate about ‘eco-localism’ and helping to connect business and community in The Weald, it has always been our plan to build on the ethos of our new-concept enterprise, by opening numerous sites that offer different experiences for our coworking community. The site at Flimwell Park provides the perfect opportunity to expand our reach and serve a wider community as many of us make the decision to continue working remotely post-lockdown”.
Flexibility, connectivity and contemporary facilities are key to The Hive’s offering. Current Buzz Packers working from The Hive in Cranbrook will have the freedom to use the different sites in a way that best suits their mood or facilities required, but also, to provide the appropriate hospitality to their clients. This will empower valued customers of The Hive to function at their best across the Kent and Sussex border.
At Flimwell Park, every aspect of design has been carefully planned and implemented. Each workspace has views over the woodland canopy, and coming soon a gallery café – offering on-site food, drink and hospitality – fuses with nature as you ascend the walkway through the trees, above the sloping woodland floor below.
Working lunches can be ordered from The Hive in Cranbrook with 24hrs notice until the cafe opens.
Innovative planning has resulted in a workspace that truly inspires and promotes health and wellbeing. Each workspace is built at varying height, to maximise natural daylight, which is known to reduce ill-health in the office and increase productivity. Coworkers can get even closer to nature by taking a break from the screen and exploring the woodland trail. There is a shower block in the main building if you work up a sweat!
Flimwell Park is sustainably built and energy efficient with on-site solar power generation. Other benefits include free car parking, 24-hour access and security, electric car charging points and cycle hire facilities.
All desks at Flimwell Park are equipped as ‘Smart Desks’ and are fully height adjustable, to allow you to sit or stand to work. They also have wireless charging, USB ports, bluetooth connectivity and a felt lined draw in which to store your laptop or tablet. Every desk comes with an ergonomic chair. For a small additional fee you can hire a lockable cabinet.
The Hive at Flimwell Park is a truly beautiful and inspiring place to be, with flexible and innovative services designed to meet the needs of each coworker as they grow their business. Similar to The Hive at Cranbrook, Buzz Packers will experience a strong sense of community in this innovative yet natural working space.
