WorkBase House Rules

WorkBase is a community of intelligent, creative, pioneering, and open-minded people. Our members value collaboration, ideas, innovation, learning, experimentation, diversity, and opportunity. In order to foster this, we give you the WorkBase House Rules.

Read them, follow them and enjoy WorkBase.

  • R-E-S-P-E-C-T - Treat the space, members, and guests with respect. If nothing else, it will make your life easier.
  • Clean Up - You are in a shared space. Clean up after yourself and your guests at your workstation, in the pantry, in the conference rooms, and in the common areas.
  • Don't disrupt others - Remember that networking, idea sharing, socializing, cross pollinating, group problem solving, and partnering are all encouraged, but be aware that members and guests are from independent entities, not customers or employees, so temper your urge for hard selling and always respect every member’s right to get their own work done.
  • Working Hours - The space opens at 9.00 am, lights out is 8.00 pm. If you have a need to use the space beyond 8.00 pm - we will account for a fair grace period - an overtime charge will be imposed and will need to be paid in advance. The space is closed on Sundays and other public Holidays
  • Internet - Our setup aims to provide reliable, high-speed Internet access with backups to ensure seamless connectivity with minimal disruption. The Internet access provided is to be used by WorkBase members for legitimate uses only. To ensure fair use, connections are throttled by default to a reasonable speed for each connected device. This is a work place, the internet is not to be used for torrent downloading, promoting illegal software piracy, accessing adult and illegal content, etc. Any such activity can result in disruptions and will result in a warning. Repeated warnings can lead to a termination of your membership. You can request having your throttle limits modified by contacting WorkBase staff. Extra charges may apply.
  • WiFi - The WiFi access point name and password details are printed on signs around the space.
  • Add-on Services Equipment - We have a limited amount of add-on services equipment, such as projectors and speaker phones. Members will be required to book these equipment, which will be provided on a first-come first-serve basis. Availability of equipment will be shared to members on request. Members will be liable for breakage and general non-function of any equipment that may occur after they have used it.
  • Lights - If you’re the last person to leave, please turn off the lights. There are switches on the right side of the entrance near the biometric and towards the right wing of the pantry on the 3rd floor. You can leave the stairwell lights on at all times.
  • Headphones - Use headphones (not provided by WorkBase) when you do not want to be disturbed, or if you want to listen to music or take a call. Respect the others in the space, and try not to disrupt their work.
  • Phone/VOIP/Chat calls - If you're going to take a short call, please keep your voice down or step out to the stairwell or the pantry to take the call. If you need to take a longer conversation, you should use the car park area.
  • Events - Members are able to use our meeting and event spaces for community and business events (so long as these events abide by the parameters set forth in the Terms of Use and related agreements). All events must first be approved by WorkBase. We require you to communicate with us the date, the time, how many people you expect, whether WorkBase members are invited, and the purpose of the event. Once you have the go ahead from us, you can reserve the space for events.
  • Guests - You are responsible for your guests. What applies for you, applies for them. Guest are not allowed to occupy workspace seats or provided Wifi access. You can meet with them in the ground floor next to the security booth or book a meeting room for a more private discussion. Your guests are welcome to use the coffee machine and other basic facilities we offer.
  • Pantry - Please label (with your name and date) anything you put in the fridge. The fridge will be cleaned out on a weekly basis (Friday afternoon/evening), and anything that is over a week old, expired, or looks/smells disgusting will be thrown away. The coffee machine is complimentary, but please make sure they are turned off if you are the last person to leave.
  • Cleaning - Occurs on every day basis in the morning. You are welcome to stay in the space while the cleaners are here, but please be willing to move your work space at some point to another area so that the entire space can be cleaned.
  • Self Regulation - Please help us ensure the safety, cleanliness, and happiness of the space. Don’t do anything that compromises the security of the space, like propping open a door or letting someone in the space unless they are a member or an accompanied guest. The terrace is off limits to all. No trespassing.
  • Also, you are responsible for cleaning up any areas and dishes you or your guests use (on a daily, not weekly or monthly basis). If you have a problem with a member’s behavior, please approach them directly, but know that speaking to WorkBase staff is always an option.

These House Rules will be updated periodically. Remember to check in occasionally to stay up-to-date with them.
