Collaborative coworking spaces to inspire ideas and action across the built environment.

We offer coworking spaces that bring our industry together, to educate, inspire, and action ideas not just for business but for social and environmental reform. Supported by a member network and a program of events, these are more than simply workspaces, they’re a community that’s driven to engineer a better, and healthier society.

The Building Society was created by engineers Elliott Wood, for a simple purpose. How can we address the problems our planet and society face? It’s a big question and one we knew couldn’t be answered alone, so we created spaces where those from the built environment could think, make and work all in one place.

So whilst the workspaces are busy with day-to-day business, our members also have a digital forum and events program built around a framework for understanding societies’ challenges and to explore solutions around these themes – Education, Technology, Health, Infrastructure, Culture, and Sustainability – we call it ETHICS

We hope through debate and knowledge-sharing we can make changes to the way we build and impact legislation. That with better design and creativity we can make places where people live better lives. 

But we also believe The Building Society can build better businesses, careers, and resources. Where else can you find a workspace where architects and engineers, PMs and M&Es, can all lean on each other? Where young and old uncover new skills, and opportunities are opened. Our spaces offer the best in facilities, but it’s our community that’s our strength.

Building a community

We support regular events and activities for the benefit of our members and the wider community. 


We know the past couple of years have been difficult, but we hope that like us, you’re optimistic about the future.
It’s a time for planning ahead, which is why our flexible memberships are designed to help our members budget
and build one step at a time.

At a time where new thinking and collaboration within the Built Environment is so important, The Building Society offers much-needed space and a sense of community to help us engineer a better society.
