More short term tie-ups announced for The Moorings, Malin House
A year on from the original ‘lockdown’, this suggests that there is now growing demand for co-working suites in the Oban marine business sector. It seems whilst working from home is fine for a while, folk are now putting a greater value than ever on the social elements of sharing a workspace, such as the in-person connections and collaborative interactions so hard to replicate so easily on-line.
The Moorings offers both individual small office spaces positioned around an open shared desk area as well as access to breakout areas both in Malin House and in the open air– right on the beach even, when the better weather arrives, and bookable meeting rooms. Businesses already on board are Glycomar Ltd, DESS Aquaculture Shipping, Dr Maryam MacCorquodale, Patogen and Ocean Ecology Ltd, with Imani Enterprise Ltd set to return to the co-working suite next month.
The Moorings respects the current recommended social distancing recommendations but when these are lifted it is expected that 3 more desk spaces will become available for short term let to marine sector businesses looking for a light touch base at The EMSP.
What’s more, HIE is currently investing almost £2m in fitting out the ground floor of Malin House and as well as bespoke laboratory and office space, this will include 3 small incubator units combining a small lab and offices. Enquiries are welcome.
