At Bright Red Triangle, we want to provide a productive, inclusive, welcoming, and collaborative environment for everyone.
Below are our main values that should be kept in mind as we conduct ourselves as members and guests.
These house rules outline our expectations for everyone who uses the space, whether it be as a coworker, program participant, or organiser or attendee of meetups and other events taking place here. The house rules apply not only in our space, but also in our online networks, all related events, and one-on-one communications carried out in the context of community business. It also states the consequences of violating these expectations.
Use of the space
Enjoy the flexibility of hot desking in a our collaborative space. At Bright Red Triangle our hot-desking operates on a first come first served basis, we do not reserve hot-desks and desks are not meant to be permanent seats for any Member.
Workspaces are clearly distinguishable. Please do not take up more than one space. If you are concerned about maintaining social distance, please be aware we do not currently have set spacing between desks, but the space should be large enough to accommodate. If you have any concerns about the space in line with Covid-19 precautions - please drop us an email to discuss at email@example.com
Members are advised that their belongings should not be left unattended at the seat for more than 2 hours, particularly when Bright Red Triangle is close to full capacity. Items left for more than 2 hours may be removed so that other Members can use the unoccupied seat.
Items are to be kindly removed from all hot desks by the end of the day. Bright Red Triangle is not responsible for any property that is left behind in an open co-working area. It is the responsibility of members to ensure that they have retrieved all of their personal items prior to leaving.
We ask the members of our community to help us keep our collaborative space clean, tidy and secure. This includes keeping the desks and common areas clean and organised, clearing used crockery from desks, recycling any rubbish, keeping the drinks station clean, mopping up any spillages and making sure windows and doors are closed at the end of the day.
For shared resources such as cutlery and mugs, you will be responsible for washing these at the end of use and returning them to the shared drinks station.
Conversations and collaborations are encouraged, however overly loud conversations tend to be distracting to those around you making it difficult to focus. Be always mindful and respect those around you.
Keys and Security
We have a new fob based system for entering the BRT space. The access doors renew on a 3 month cycle for increased security, so we will send you email reminders so that you do not lose access. Renewal of fobs can be done at the Bainfield student accommodation office or by a member of our team.
Any entry fobs which we let you use remain our property at all times. You must not make any copies of the fobs or allow anyone else to use them without our consent. Any loss must be reported to us immediately and you must pay a reasonable fee for replacement fobs.
Members are welcome to use the meeting room on an ‘ad hoc’ basis, unless there are prior bookings.
‘Ad Hoc’ includes popping in to take a phone call, having an impromptu meeting, needing a quiet space etc. It does not include unlimited or exclusive access. Use of the booking room is free of change but we withhold the right to remove this benefit to users, should their use be deemed to be taking advantage of these facilities, making them inaccessible to other members.
After the meeting is over, the meeting room should be left in the condition it was found. All personal items should be removed, and lights switched off.
