Opening Spring 2022
We’re proud to be developing an inspiring and spacious gem of a building, central to the Jewellery Quarter’s historic success. And today, as a part of Birmingham’s creative community, you can join a new team of thinkers and makers in this exciting co-working space.
The Jointworks is really the culmination of a dream we’ve shared for several years. Most of the team involved so far have had businesses based here in Birmingham’s close-knit Jewellery Quarter, or have worked nomadically as freelancers in and around the city. But we’ve all longed for a place of our own.
The Jointworks is full of echoes of the creativity of the city’s industrial (and industrious) past.
It’s inspiring to think about the precision and dedication of those silversmiths and talented designers, the engravers and watchmakers, the electro-platers and metal-spinners, all of them joining forces to drive the city's economy and reputation.
Recent rethinking about workspace balance has highlighted the importance of central and efficient get-together spaces to share ideas with friends, colleagues and clients. To challenge and clarify projects and plans, and to build new unexpected connections in a way the digital world sometimes finds hard.
Now it’s our turn, making our mark together and breathing new life into this building.
Come and co-work alongside independent web and graphic designers, health-tech developers and entrepreneurs, illustrators and animators, film-makers, comms professionals and brand strategists.
The Jointworks will be the new HQ for several growing independent businesses including Substrakt, Substrakt Health, Ammba, Impakt as well as the home to the team behind Birmingham Design (including their new shop).
We know first-hand the pressures and hassles of rented office space and are determined to create something different and something better. Somewhere flexible and secure where we can jointly pursue a hybrid approach blending the best of the creative office community alongside work-from-home digital flexibility. Somewhere connected, adaptable and easy to access where we can get our best work done and build our businesses.
Sounds like something you want to join? Then you’ve come to the right space.
Right now, working from home might be starting to lose its appeal.
But at The Jointworks you can have the best of all worlds: ample workspace for meetings, training or events, quiet booths for concentration and privacy, plus regular desks for you and your flexible team whenever they’re needed.
We’ll have several large co-working areas, where you can just grab a desk and get going. If you need a quiet meeting space or a compact private studio for small teams, The Jointworks has these too. Simple online booking with in-person concierge support means you can access these anytime with a bit of notice. In our flexible ground-floor events area, we’ll be teaming up with partners to host sharing sessions, receptions and seminars with a focus on the creative industries - especially design and tech.
We’re surrounded by great independent bars and tasty eats, near to the canals and connected to useful cycle paths and train/bus routes. We also have a secure alleyway with bike parking and outdoor tables.
We’re preserving the original spirit and atmosphere working with heritage specialists to retain as much character as we can. Starting with around 100 desks over three floors, the architects have gone big on natural light and we’re talking to local artists, craftspeople and writers about decoration to make working here a comfortable, creative and satisfying experience.
The Jointworks is a stylish shared workspace with easy access to the city centre.
