Want your very own permanent spot in our open coworking area? Then a dedicated desk is perfect for you!
A space that you can make your own while still enjoying the benefits of being part of the Waterman community.
What is a dedicated desk?
A dedicated desk is a permanent workspace that is guaranteed to be as it was when you left it the day before. Unlike hot desking, you won’t need to find a new place to work every day which may be necessary for your business if you carry too much around. Sometimes a secure place where you can be confident in leaving your belongings is necessary for peace of mind in your business. You’ll have a desk, an office chair and a secure, lockable storage drawer.
Why a dedicated desk?
A coworking space has some incredible benefits. With a dedicated desk, you’ll have the access to a permanent workspace which you can personalize and store belongings in. In addition, you’ll also be in the thick of a thriving collaborative environment. You’ll be just feet away from several other small business owners who might be exactly the help you need to grow your business while you help to grow theirs. It’s like having a large, open plan office with endless collaboration opportunities.
Is a dedicated desk right for me?
If you’re in the beginning stages of starting your business, why not save money on an office you don’t require yet then work your way up to an office once your business grows to fit into one. The coworking space may actually provide more value than a traditional office space alone and out of the way, out of touch from anyone else. Otherwise, if you have an established business but most of your work doesn’t require an office space, save the cash!
Lastly, if you have a business with employees and you find a large enough office costs far too much including the amenities you require, grab a dedicated desk for yourself and each of your employees instead. With a dedicated desk, you’ll have access to all the extras like parking, Wi-Fi and amenities plus the ability to work from anywhere in the centre if your desk isn’t what you need on any particular day. The elasticity is exactly what any business needs.

The beauty about calling a Waterman centre home is the abundance of common area and shared space you get so you’re never restricted to work from one space. This means you’ll have access to kitchen facilities, business lounges, break out spaces and more as a part of your package, and the ability to book private meeting & event spaces as you require them.
A dedicated desk in our coworking space is perfect for one person with plenty of space, but there isn’t much space for two! The good news is that your desk is allocated to you only, so you don’t have to worry about sharing.
Your Dedicated Desk comes with both an ergonomic office chair so you’re never forced to sit on the floor and a lockable storage unit (attached to your desk) so you can store your valuables without worry! You also have multiple power points, physical signage printed and an access pass all included in your set-up fee.
Dedicated Desks at Narre Warren currently do not have lockable storage units.
Our friendly leasing team will discuss the best seating arrangement with you based on your needs and our availability.
Of course! All dedicated desks come with parking however depending on the centre, the type of parking included will vary. In addition to this all desks come with unlimited ultra-fast Wi-Fi with current speeds of up to 1000/1000Mbps so you won’t need an ethernet port!
We pride ourselves on the variety of our business community and the collaborative feel in our centres. That means at any given time you could be working alongside any number of local and global businesses that use our coworking spaces from a varying range of industries. Professional services, those in creative fields and everything in between operate from our co-working area.
The co-working area changes on a day to day basis! Some days there is a real buzz in our coworking area and other days everyone is super focused. If this is a concern for you, we encourage you to book a tour and come into the centre to get a feel for it yourself. Regardless, we do have dedicated quiet coworking areas where you can really buckle down and work in peace if you feel the main coworking area isn’t too your liking. That’s the beauty of flexible workspaces!
Included in your Dedicated Desk package is an access pass which grants your 24/7 access to all Waterman centres so you can work where you want. Our centres are also staffed during business hours (Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm) but we still recommend you carry your access pass so you can get around with ease.
Included in your Dedicated Desk package is a physical mail box which you can use to have all your business mail delivered to. Our friendly service team will sort and deliver your mail as it arrives and place it in your locked mail box.
You will be billed on a monthly basis via direct debit for your Dedicated Desk as well as any additional spend (such as meeting room bookings, printing, etc) you may accrue throughout the month.
Included in your package are basic reception services (such as mail sorting, meeting and greeting of your clients and a land line number with call forwarding to your mobile) but all Waterman packages come with access to upgrade and get even more value out of your monthly plan such as a virtual receptionist, printing, wireless handsets, server rack space and other technical services.
As you’ve probably noticed by now, we’re all about community! That means we encourage each and every member to attend the myriad of community events and online resources we put on throughout the year to help you connect, collaborate and grow with likeminded business people.
