Whilst it incorporates elements of some existing workplace practices, this model is a global first.

CONFERENCE VENUE

Interconnected, shared and cross related like the urban fabric; the B:HIVE is a new model of workplace, a global first. The building fosters growth and recognizes a need for adaptability. For a business and for building owners alike, to survive in the future market it needs to be agile and requires a flexible environment that will allow it to evolve with a changing landscape. The B:HIVE is the antithesis of “office building” in that its genesis is to be a “place” for flexible, collaborative and community engaged work attracting start-ups, small companies and individuals.
