Hawaiian and Spacecubed join to create FLUX

Hawaiian and entrepreneurial hub Spacecubed have joined forces to create the largest co-working office space in Perth: FLUX.

Hawaiian will work with Spacecubed to redevelop three floors in Parmelia House, owned and managed by Hawaiian, to become co-working office space.

Driving innovation and entrepreneurship is a vitally important factor in the partnership, which aims to redefine how office space is used in Perth and support the growing demand for coworking spaces.

Hawaiian Director and CEO, Mr Russell Gibbs said co-working spaces will become an integral part of the CBD office environment.

“As WA’s resource sector matures into its operations phase, its essential for WA to develop new opportunities in other industries”

Gibbs says. “Hawaiian has often been recognised for its industry innovation and aims to be an integral part of WA’s community of entrepreneurs. We are committed to creating the largest co-working office space in Perth – not just a space to sit, but a place to connect, develop, engage and grow new ventures that will become WA’s platform for ongoing economic sustainability.

The spaces will be designed to be fluid and adaptable offering the ability to both foster collaboration and work individually.

Brodie McCulloch, founder and Managing Director of Spacecubed, said “Coworking is rapidly proving a positive and productive working environment for entrepreneurs and startups, it’s now caught the attention of larger companies. Many companies are exploring how to integrate the benefits of these spaces into theirs.”

The new venture provides a platform to expand support for entrepreneurs in Perth.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Hawaiian on this venture. The demand for coworking spaces is increasing and our partnership will create an inspiring space where entrepreneurs and companies can develop game-changing products and services. It’s a huge step forward to fostering entrepreneurship in Perth”.

FLUX powered by Spacecubed will open in March 2016.
