Regus, the global workspace provider, has opened the doors to its first Regus Express location on the M1 motorway, at Watford Gap motorway service area.
The new generation workplace is designed to cater for the growing needs of mobile workers, local home-based professionals and business travellers. It features a drop-in business lounge with free, secure Wi-Fi and refreshments, as well as high-specification meeting rooms which are bookable by the hour.
Based on the experience of other Regus Express sites already open on the motorway network, Regus expects the facility to be popular with local professionals seeking an alternative to the home office or looking for a convenient location for meetings, as well as those who work on the move.
Regus comments: “We’re delighted to announce the opening of our latest innovative Express location at Britain’s oldest motorway service area. This marks the latest step in the expansion of our Regus Express network, which offers flexible, professional workspaces for those who work on the move.
“Notions of ‘the office’ are changing rapidly and we increasingly need places to connect to work, wherever we are. As a company, we are leading a revolution in the way we work and striving to make modern business easier by extending our network of Express locations at leading transport and retail hubs across the globe.”
Regus Express Watford Gap is the latest milestone in the roll-out of Regus’ Third Place concept - professional workspaces and office facilities at places where business people and mobile workers pass through in daily life. In the UK, Express locations can also be found at shopping centres, retail parks, airports and hotels.
There are two ways to access Regus Express centres:
Pay-as-you-go access priced at £5 per hour or £10 per day.
Regus Businessworld membership at £35 per month, which provides drop-in access to the business lounges at each of Regus’ 320 UK locations including Regus Express.
The facility is located at: Northampton, Regus Express, Watford Gap Services, M1 Motorway, Junction 16/17, Northampton, NN6 7UZ
The opening of Regus Express at Watford Gap is part of a wider roll-out across Roadchef’s network, which includes other sites at Clacket Lane (M25), Strensham North (M5), Norton Canes and and Sandbach South (both M6).
