Members with Keycard Access

Brix Coworking re-opened its spaces on May 1st, 2020 to allow you, our members, to come back to work when you felt comfortable.

Since the majority of our members are in private offices, safe physical distancing is already being practiced to a large extent.

For open work areas and communal spaces, we will be enforcing additional social distancing guidelines (see below). This includes the kitchens, cafes, phone booths, bathrooms, conference rooms, lounges, and reception areas.

Members will have to meet and let any guests or customers into the buildings or spaces as they are still locked to the public.

Tours, Trials, Day Users & Visitors

For the foreseeable future, Brix Coworking will remain closed to non-members. Buildings and spaces are locked to walk-ins and the general public.

Visitors who have scheduled tours, want to use our free trial week, and global or day pass users are only able to visit the coworking spaces BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

A member of the Brix Coworking team will need to meet you at the front door to let you in. Contact us for more information, if you have questions or to be admitted to one of the locked spaces upon your arrival.

Health and Safety Standards

Cleaning & Sanitization

In addition to the UVC air sanitization efforts, our workspaces receive daily cleaning and regular sanitization of high-traffic surface areas.

Signage & Communication

In order to enforce hygienic best practices and distancing guidelines, visual signage is positioned in appropriate areas throughout our spaces.

Reduction in Shared Touchpoints

We’ve installed touch-less waste receptacles, stocked single use towels and creamers, and have water bottle fillers to reduce shared touch points around our spaces.

Reinventing Indoor Air Quality

There’s a lot of talk regarding how most coworking facilities are improving their HVAC systems and maximizing how much clean, fresh air is being drawn into their workspace.

While we don’t disagree with this method, we feel it’s not an obvious or visual enough change to give our members the piece of mind that the air is truly being taken care of. And recycling air doesn’t necessarily mean it’s any cleaner.

At Brix Coworking, we are proud to say that we’ve gone one step beyond recycling: we are naturally cleaning and deodorizing our indoor environments with UVC radiation light technology.

Both of our locations are equipped with hydroxyl generators, which run daily while our management teams are onsite.  These machines mimic the natural UV sanitization process that the sun and nature uses to clean outdoors.  You can learn more about how these machines work against pathogens and viruses like Coronavirus on the vendor’s page.

Mail Forwarding for Members During COVID-19

It may make sense to keep mail forwarding on for your business depending on how things continue to develop throughout the year. Here is the original information we sent out in March in case you still need to setup mail forwarding:

“While mail is still being delivered to Brix locations, it may make sense to temporarily forward your business email to your home so you don’t miss anything important. You can setup mail forwarding on the USPS website.”
