We continue working in adapting our spaces and protocols to offer you a workplace completely adjusted to the Government requirements and recommendations in the RD 21/2020 published on 9th June where you feel safe. We cannot eliminate uncertainty, but we can put all our efforts to minimize risks and learn how to behave in order to protect ourselves and those around us.
What are we doing?
At the entrances of both coworking spaces we continuously map out the most important indications to follow in the spaces:
- Disinfect your hands with HIDROALCOCOLIC GEL when entering the space, before and after using any common spaces (bathrooms, kitchen, etc.), after touching any common element or someone else, etc.
- Keep a MINIMUM DISTANCE from others of 1,5 metres. When that may not be possible please use your MASKS. These are not needed in your own workplace, where the minimum distance is guaranteed, but maybe yes when entering the space or walking around the space where you can cross with other members.
We have temporarily reduced the capacity of the space and changed the layout of the tables in order to extend corridors, passage areas, distances between workplaces.
We limit the mobility of Flex memberships to avoid sharing physical spaces. If you need a Flex membership instead of a Fixed one, contact us and we will find a solution for you.
As a novelty, we offer the “Concilia” Membership for those couples who live together and need to reconcile family with remote work. This membership allows you to rent a fixed position, share it with your partner (morning / afternoon or by days) and… to reconcile!
We enabled more Individual Private Offices for those who prefer more privacy.
We keep the essential common areas during the working day (kitchenette, coffee and water supply , etc.) but we removed social areas like our relax area for safety reasons.
Please keep a maximum of three members simultaneously at the kitchenette. We have reduced the furniture and changed the layout of these areas to make that happen.
We recommend you to avoid sharing office supplies, equipment, utensils, etc.
We need to avoid groups of people in the common areaa, therefore all community activities (monthly breakfast, lunch, etc) will be organized outdoors.
Our 24/7 fingerprint access system has been replaced by contactless access methods.
Access to space is limited to active coworking members only; please schedule your visitors with the Front Desk.
The Front Desk service will not be regular, but whether or not we are physically at the spot, we are still available to you via phone or email from Monday to Friday from 9 to18h.
We take tours by appointment, so if you want to visit the space or restart your membership, write us and set a day and time that suits you well.
We continue to receive mail, but we will not receive packages ; we will provide you with the address of a collaborating company with whom we have made an agreement on receiving packages.
We recommend you to choose a coworking space close to your place to avoid unnecessary commutes and public transport risks; also to make it easier for you to go back home to eat or rest (we remind you that the relax and social areas have been temporarily reduced or eliminated). In Valencia we have two coworking spaces with strategic locations: Vortex Coworking Playa in the Cabanyal neighborhood, just a few steps from the Marina; Vortex Coworking Centro in Calle Sorní, in the commercial and financial center of Valencia. If you live near the beach, Blasco Ibañez, Patacona, Malvarrosa, la Marina or the Port area, Vortex Playa is your indicated space and you can take a nice stroll avoiding public transport. If you live in the City of Sciences, Ruzafa, Carmen, Colón or Alameda, Vortex Centro is your indicated office.
If you have already been a member of one of the spaces, we now make it easier for you to change membership from one space to another so that you choose the one that is closer to you; let us know and we will send you the paperwork to do so.
On your first day in the space, we will do a small introduction and we will resolve any questions or concerns you may have. We will take you to your new desk and give you your welcome #staysafe package with your mask, gloves and gel.
Cleaning and hygiene
We are reinforcing cleaning in the spaces, especially in the common areas.
We are studying optimal alternatives in our spaces to improve air conditioning and ventilation systems. Meanwhile, in Vortex Centro all our offices have large windows and balconies that facilitate natural ventilation; in Vortex Playa the windows will open on a regular basis to facilitate natural ventilation.
We have removed the kitchen tools from kitchenettes. We propose that our members bring their own cup (or ask for us to for one), identify it (we have paints for it) and leave it at their desk at the end of the working day. We also advise cleaning dishes, tuppers and cutlery at home to avoid using shared cleaning products.
To facilitate access and cleaning of your desks, please keep them as clear as possible. There are individual lockers at the disposal of members so, whoever needs one , you have can rent one to store work materials, kitchen utensils etc. Welcome to the clean table policy.
We keep our Virtual Office services as usual. All members who receive mail at our space will be able to continue to do so. As usual, once a week will contact them to facilitate the collection of mail.
Events o visits
All onsite events at the space, both professional and social, have been restricted or replaced by online events (or outdoors events when allowed) about which we will keep you informed every week through our communication channels and social media.
If you feel the following symptoms: fever, shortness of breath, cough and/or headache, we recommend you to stay home for precaution.
Every week, we will report on the progress we make as more information becomes available. If you have any questions, suggestions, ideas, etc., please do not hesitate to contact us by email: email@example.com
