coworkingThe world of hot-desking and collaborative working has arrived in Brighouse with the launch of BrigHub, the town’s first co-working space.

BrigHub operates from a revitalised Victorian building and former pub, Vulcan House, purchased by Stefanie Hopkins and currently home to her PR, social media and content agency Faith PR.

The new co-working space will offer room for businesses across the region to connect and collaborate over three floors and 2,780 sq ft.

Stefanie has invested significantly in the historic Victorian building and one-time pub, built in 1869 and located in the heart of Brighouse. Vulcan House incorporates a substantial open-plan office for Faith, with three further office spaces, a large meeting room, communal kitchen and dining area for use by BrigHub clients.

Brighub offers hot desking, dedicated desks and meeting solutions for freelancers, remote workers, start-ups and established businesses. Desk space is available on a flexible basis, including pay-as-you-go and fixed-term packages to suit all requirements and ambitions from just £20 a day.

Having a desk within BrigHub will provide members with a host of benefits including free Wifi, secure premises, shower facilities and outdoor space with decking and seating.

Prospective users can drop in to check out the facilities at an open afternoon on August 12 between 3pm-6pm.

Stefanie, who has run Faith PR for 13 years and is a director of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, said she was excited to offer a new, vibrant alternative to traditional office space.

“Since the pandemic, we understand the way people work has changed, yet despite many now working from home. Some of us are still craving to have some return to ‘normality’,” she said.

“That’s why we’ve significantly invested in BrigHub to suit the needs of a modern workforce. We want professionals and small business owners of Calderdale and West Yorkshire to have the opportunity to work in an office environment, but one that suits their needs.

“BrigHub is a community of businesses that support each other, whether it is through collaboration, offering a different point of view, inspiration, business advice, insight or the motivation everyone needs from time to time.”
