The Dolphin Centre in Poole is planning to give a helping hand to new businesses.
The FOUNDRY co-working space is proposed to open this November, in a joint initiative with centre owners, Legal and General Investment Management Real Assets (LGIM).
From individuals to start-ups with global player aspirations, FOUNDRY offers the community a local platform to work, host and grow. Rented by the day, week or month, there are flexible working options available to accommodate businesses of all sizes.
Greg Westover, fund head of Retail and Leisure at Legal & General, said: “As we recover from the challenges of the past few years, it is evident that the entrepreneurial spirit of the Poole business community is very much alive and thriving.
“This unique environment provides an exciting space to do business; ideal for those who don’t want to commute.”
Plans are underway to celebrate the 60s architecture of the Brownsea House building, located on the first and second floors of the centre, by exposing the original design features and merging them with new contemporary elements.
Adam Walker, co-founder of FOUNDRY, said: “Using the building’s mid-century architecture as an influence, we aim to create inspiring office suites and collaborative communal areas to inject the fun back into home working.
“It is our mission to empower the local business community by giving them the space at FOUNDRY to think differently and to upscale growth.”
With access through the centre into a concierge style lobby, members will have exclusive use of the workspace lounge, meeting and bar areas within the serviced office complex.
Adam added: “If you are fighting with working from home fatigue and the stagnation of a solitary desk, consider our carefully curated work environment, where you have the opportunity and freedom to make fruitful connections.”
