The Sheds are making waves at Pacific Road
Brand new co-working space for creative and digital businesses opens its doors in Birkenhead’s Pacific Road Business Hub
This month sees the eagerly-awaited launch of the Sheds at Pacific Road. The state-of-the-art Birkenhead-based co-working space, which has recently undergone a £900,000 renovation, invites digital and creative businesses and start-ups to call the space their own and rent a desk in its growing creative community.
Operated by the Wirral Chamber of Commerce and designed as a space to ‘dream, dare, create and share’ – the Sheds at Pacific Road encourages creative collaboration between its residents, whilst providing networking opportunities and consultation schemes, to help fledgling businesses to flourish.
Offering a range of flexible payment plans, the Sheds at Pacific Road is made up of ‘Shed Street’, a row of brand-new garden sheds, providing unique office space for up to three people; and an open-plan mezzanine, which is home to plenty of desk spaces.
With the communal kitchen area providing bottomless tea and coffee; comfy breakout spaces for meetings and socialising; and with important facilities such as high-speed Wi-Fi, printing and photocopying included in the price – the space is the perfect place for anyone looking to take the leap from home-working to co-working.
The only space of its kind in Wirral, the Sheds at Pacific Road offers an easily accessible and alternative co-working environment to nearby workspaces such as Liverpool’s Baltic Creative and Launch22.
Paula Basnett, CEO, Wirral Chamber of Commerce says: “I believe that we’ve providing something unique for Wirral’s creatives; something that will go beyond a traditional business centre, to become a cultural and social hive of activity.
“The best co-working spaces we’ve seen can blur the lines between work and play and that is definitely our aspiration here. We want to level the playing field for Wirral’s creatives so that they have the benefits currently enjoyed at successful co-working spaces in cities on our doorstep and across the country.
“The Sheds at Pacific Road will be an evolving workspace that changes as each new resident adds their own touch. We’re working to ensure that we get a vibrant mix of businesses and freelancers on board, so that we develop a positive atmosphere where people genuinely look forward to coming to work each day.”
