WORKCO

WHO WE ARE



It all started with the idea of combining a collaborative business setting with world-class furniture design and sales. Blending those two ideas was a challenge that took time to overcome. How do you do it? Through amazing teamwork with the individuals below and countless others, we conceptualized, developed, and created Workco. Today, we are a premier coworking space in downtown Birmingham with a retail showroom proudly displaying two amazing brands that define our space.

We believe work is about collaboration between people, free-flowing ideas, and an atmosphere that inspires. Our name expresses that purpose by its flexibility; co/work/co. Our space is home to trailblazers, innovators, and game changers who are confident in achieving their goals. Whether you are a small business, entrepreneur, or a corporate employee, we will help you work better by working together.

Our vibrant culture attracts an energetic community of positive and open-minded thinkers who love to meet new people. The full program of events and the inspiring European design of our space makes our members feel at home while they’re at work.

At Workco, we make sure our community can focus on driving their business forward by taking the burden off administrative logistics and services. You take care of your things while we take care of everything else.

Let’s Work Together!
