Collaborative workspace opens in South Surrey

A new 'flexible work space' has opened in South Surrey

A new ‘flexible work space’ has opened in South Surrey.

Regus celebrated the opening with the local community, small business owners and entrepreneurs on Wednesday afternoon at 15300 Croydon Dr.

The location was established “to offer local professionals and entrepreneurs an alternative to working from home and for remote workers to skip the lengthy commute to downtown Vancouver offices,” a news release states.

“The workspace includes private and shared offices, and a large co-working space combining an open and modern design.”

According to research by Regus, there has been a sharp rise in flexible workspace and co-working in recent years, for reasons including a desire to work with like-minded people, the opportunity to network and its cost-effectiveness compared to fixed-office leasing.

Information on the company’s website states co-working space at the South Surrey site (per person, per day and on a 24-month agreement) is available for $12; cost of a window office ranges from $14.60 to $90.10; an internal office is $12.20 to $43.50.
