Ideal for small businesses or larger companies opening a Hawke's Bay branch office.
About our shared space
Hastings HIVE provides serviced offices and coworking desks in what we call an i-space, the trademarked name for our high-tech, and high-class shared space. Shared office space first became popular in San Francisco, but really took off in other international trading centres like London, New York and Toronto after the GFC, and are now available in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.
Shared office spaces help organisations focus on their core business, without the additional distractions and costs involved in operating and maintaining leased office facilities.
We did have a good look at the monthly costs before sign-up, and ran some brief numbers along the lines of the worksheets on the HIVE website. It is surprising how much leasing an office really costs,
and how many costs get hidden in general expenses. We are certainly saving money being in the HIVE.
We’ve been able to set up really quickly, it’s pretty much been walk in, plug in our computers and hit the ground running.
The HIVE has some great facilities such as meeting rooms, breakout spaces such as the lounge and cafe.
"Our purpose is to provide a high-tech, shared office environment incorporating beautiful design" says Rob Gill, managing director, "supporting small business and start-ups, with the lowest standard rates for coworking desks and serviced offices in the Hawke's Bay and possibly NZ."
"Our vision is to create the most welcoming and supportive coworking community in the Hawke's Bay."
"But larger companies seeking lower occupancy costs or to establish a branch office in the Bay region whilst enjoying a corporate office feel for staff, will find our i-offices super cost-effective, with ICT systems specified to meet the strictest corporate standards."
"Last but not least, we provide a great solution for not-for-profit organisations seeking greater control and flexibility with their operating expenses, and we offer further support in the form of discounted pricing for this vital service sector."
