Smithfield Works is part of the wider Smithfield scheme, in Hanley, which has already seen the construction of the 1 and 2 Smithfield buildings, the Hilton Garden Inn, the 11-storey Clayworks apartment block and a new 730-space multi-storey car park which is currently under construction. It will be based across the ground floor and on level zero of Clayworks – which was completed last year – and in the ground floor space of the 2 Smithfield building. Smithfield will be able to offer one desk up to 150,000 sq ft of office accommodation. “The delivery of Smithfield Works will create a business eco-system. Genr8, along with Make It Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, want to support business growth and help business evolve and flourish for Smithfield and for the city.” Smithfield Works will offer three types of membership, with benefits including Gigabit broadband, 24/7 access, storage areas and shower facilities as well as access to tech support, a social events calendar and discounts at local businesses. Members will be able to book access to the facility via an easy-to-use app which allows people to book a workspace, pay their membership fees, report any issues and book onto any classes and seminars taking place across the Smithfield estate. “Joel said:”Genr8 has designed and will develop, invest and operate Smithfield Works and we want to make life as simple as possible for potential members, so we have created a specifically-designed Smithfield Works app.
