A desk at the Electron Workshop isn’t just a desk. It’s a place to find camaraderie, network, and get things done. You’re more than welcome to come visit anytime, check out the space, have a coffee, and meet the folks that already work here. To give us a heads up that you’ll be visiting, please shoot us a note.
Each desk at the Electron Workshop includes symmetrical 100/100mbit Fibre Optic Internet connectivity, a UPS-backed Meraki WIFI controller to keep connectivity fair. Premium coffee is freely supplied, along with a twin group espresso machine & Mazzer grinder. Other features include a shower, two toilets, fully equipped kitchen with fridge, oven and cookware; 40kw of air conditioning in the main space to keep things cool in summer, along with six infrared natural gas heaters for toasty winter warmth. Most of our members commute via tram, foot or bike – we provide internal bike racks to safely park your wheels.
Electron Workshop runs the most efficient AC available, and the most efficient mode of heating with natural gas. We additionally pay a premium for 100% green energy, and run low-watt light globes across the board. We’re part of the 1% for the Planet initiative, donating 1% of our turnover to environmental charities, assisting Friends of the Earth to fight fracking, and the Surfrider Foundation.
We are also certified B Corp. Learn about what this means.
Permanent desks mean the desk area is yours to keep files, monitors and equipment, etc. At this stage, any other desk options do not provide any storage.
