From Paper Mill to Co-Working Space
Mill House Wooburn opens to support start-ups, freelancers and small businesses in Buckinghamshire.
Circa45, the operator behind Mill House opens its doors to this flexible working space in the heart of Wooburn. The former paper mill on the River Wye has recently undergone a full refurbishment and internal refit ready for small business and entrepreneur use, and boasts the technology of a city office in natural surroundings, with prices starting at £35 per day or £350 (pcm) for a dedicated work station.
Located between Bourne End and Beaconsfield, Mill House has been launched at the optimum time as individuals and businesses return to ‘business as usual’ in a flexible fashion post-pandemic. McKinsey’s recent paper into ‘The Future of Work after COVID-19’ found that between 20-25 percent of workforces could work from home between three and five days a week; with a third of organisations planning to reduce office space by 30 per cent. The cultural shift towards flexible working cannot be downplayed, with operators like Circa45 booming to cater for this trend as people work more flexibly but want to create distance between home and the workplace.
Glenn Bolton, founder of Mill House Wooburn comments: “The Mill House is a superb antidote to working from home. How and where we work has changed, it had been doing so for years but the pandemic has accelerated it. Working more flexibly is beneficial for so many reasons, not just for individuals and businesses, but for towns and cities outside of London unlocking talent and encouraging growth within local economies. Mill House is an attractive proposition for so many people, whether it be for those working for larger corporations in the city looking for a local workspace, or those looking for a flexible base in which to start their own successful businesses. Flexible workspaces are a hive of activity and creativity, and this is what we want to foster to help cross fertilise ideas and opportunities. We’re excited to open the doors to see this business growth, creativity and enrichment within our local community in action.”
The newly refurbished Mill House provides a member’s club in the heart of Wooburn, incorporating 42 coworking desks, 2 meeting spaces (including one which can comfortably seat 18 people), breakout areas, and a large, fully equipped kitchen. The Circa45 team are mindful of members health and safety so Mill House is COVID secure, with temperature screening and excellent air circulation throughout the spaces.
Anthony Peck, Director of Acquisitions adds: “We are ambitious, not only for our locations but our users, as we want to give them the best tools to get the job done; our members club approach delivers a cleverly designed space where people can work how they want to, be that socially or independently, soaking up the atmosphere or within one of our quieter areas. We want to provide a space in which people can work from and do business. Mill House is located in the heart of Wooburn, which has excellent links to High Wycombe and London, abuzz with activity from small businesses and commuters who aren’t returning to their city office post-pandemic.”
