What exactly is The Works - Gilbert?
The Works is a Coworking Space located in Gilbert, AZ at the Northeast Corner of Higley and Ray Roads. Our purpose is to support businesses by making available to them comfortable working spaces, fast internet, good coffee, private phone booths, and conference rooms.
Think of us as a business incubator where startups can have room to grow without the overhead of long-term leases. Others consider us a business center where they can meet with their clients and coworkers at a location other than the local coffee shop or their home office. Both descriptions are accurate.
Some of our members grew their businesses to a size that required them to leave their home office. When a potential client Googles your business address and finds a residential home, they may form an opinion (valid or not), that this isn't a "real business".
Some members work at The Works because they simply need to get things done. The home office environment doesn't work for everyone. The distractions associated with a home office can stifle productivity levels.
Nearly all of our membership plans include 24/7 Access to The Works. So whether you work very early, very late, or on the weekends, we have you covered.
Conference Room Capacities
The Higley Room - Although the Higley room has seating for up to 10 people, 8 people is the unofficial maximum for comfort. 8 people would all be able to set up laptops with Wifi access and work comfortably. Large screen television allows for presentations.
The Ray Room - This room lends itself to smaller meetings with a maximum of 4 people. Typical use-cases are interviews, depositions, testing, attorney/client meetings, and study sessions. This room also has a television for presentations.
Weekends and After Hours - If you haven't booked a Conference Room from us before, we must meet you prior to using our conference rooms on weekends are after hours. Since you'd be using the space without staff members present, you'll need to know a few things to make your meeting successful. Stop in to say hello and discuss your off-hours use of our conference rooms. We’re staffed Monday thru Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm.
Full-time members - Most of our active members have access to our conference rooms as part of their membership plan at no charge.

The Works provide fiber optic internet to our members. Members can stream music, conduct video conference calls, make wifi phone calls, all without interruption.
As a safeguard, we have a DSL backup feed available in the event that we have an interruption in service to our main fiber optic line. In the event of a connectivity disaster (construction crew severs the Fiber Optic Line), our DSL line activates.
Active members can receive mail at The Works at no charge. "Active members" are those who are on a current 5-day Plan, Unlimited Plan, Dedicated Desk Plan, or in one of our Private Offices.
For those who aren't active members, but still want to receive mail at The Works we offer a Virtual Mail membership. This allows you to use the business address of The Works as their local business address.
We will accept your Google Verification Postcard and relay it to you so you can confirm your office location with Google.
We will accept packages for you and notify you.
We will scan, forward, or shred mail at your discretion.
The Works offers the following membership plans:
Private Offices - When available, our typical private offices are intended for 1, 2, or 3 people. Some, but not all of our private offices are turnkey with desks and chairs. We often have a wait-list for private offices.
Dedicated Desks - For those who don't need a private office, but still want a desk to call their own. These members leave their monitors, sometimes a file cabinet, and all the trinkets that make the desk their home base.
Unlimited - For those who want the freedom to come in any time and sit anywhere (except for someone's dedicated desk)
5-day - For those who need to escape the home office 5 days per month
Day Passes - For those who need to work at The Works for a few hours or an entire day. No membership involved. Just book your day pass, show up and get stuff done.

Would your business be a good fit for The Works? Let's talk.
Sometimes the atmosphere is tranquil. Sometimes it’s bustling. Members who need privacy can always slip into one of our private phone booths to make that important phone call, record a podcast episode, or produce their next social media post.
For non-members looking to escape distractions from home (even for just a few hours) can book a day pass and use one of our phone booths. We see TeleMed professionals shuffling in from time to time to conduct telephone appointments with patients.
Memberships to The Works are month-to-month. We require 30-days notice to terminate your membership (similar to most gym memberships).
Day Passes allow for you to work with us for a day or a few hours without having an active membership. A Day Pass is great way to get a feel for what it's like to work with us without committing to a membership.
We have plenty of free parking on both sides of our building.
