15 businesses relocate to new East Kilbride co-working space


East Kilbride’s new co-working space EK Collective has now welcomed 15 businesses since launching in February this year.

Among the new companies now located in Strathmore and Edinburgh Houses are commercial interior design studio Bell & Swift, wine supplier Alexander Wines, landscapers Candid Projects, contractor IAS electrical and cleaning company Queen of Clean.

EK Collective, which offers hot-desking, communal workspaces, meeting rooms and event spaces, is run by Collective Communities CIC, a social enterprise company established by existing co-working company Glasgow Collective.

The space, previously occupied by David Urquhart Travel, offers flexible all-inclusive memberships aimed at all sizes and types of organisations, from individuals to established companies.

Bell & Swift co-founder and managing director Dawn Campbell said: “Many of our team at Bell & Swift live in East Kilbride or South Glasgow and have been commuting into the city centre for the last five years, so we jumped at the chance to have our Scotland base closer to home.”

Dr Lisa Cameron, MP for East Kilbride, said: “I previously visited EK Collective’s sister company in Glasgow with councillor John Anderson, chair of enterprise; it is fantastic they have chosen East Kilbride for their next venture.”

Glasgow Collective and EK Collective co-founder David McBeth said: “Demand for space at EK Collective has been incredible, there is a real buzz and energy, with the diverse range of new businesses that have joined.

“We are excited about the coming months and want to support entrepreneurs and businesses at all stages of growth by continuing to develop this new working environment which will foster community and collaboration.”
