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.
Some 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 or 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.
Full-time members - Some of our active members have access to our conference rooms as part of their membership plan at no charge.

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.
The foot traffic within our shared office space changes from hour to hour, day to day.
Memberships to The Works are month-to-month. We require 30-days notice to terminate your membership (similar to most gym memberships).
We have options for occasional use of The Works as well:
Day Passes enable you to work with us for a day or a few hours without having an active membership. A Day Pass is a great way to get a feel for what it's like to work with us without committing to a membership.
5-day Passes - Work with us for 5-days within 30 calendar days.
We have plenty of free parking on both sides of our building.
You may even run into "Doug" while you are parking. Doug is our resident Roadrunner. He regularly patrols the parking lots looking for bugs and small lizards. And if you were wondering if Roadrunners can fly, Doug answers that question by flying about 6 inches above the curbing at the end of the video.
- The Higley Post Office is on the other side of our parking lot, a 2-minute walk. This small, little known post office can help you avoid the long lines at the Val Vista USPS location.
- Air Guitar, the upscale convenience store across the street from us
- Wells Fargo is in our complex, 3 doors away
- Backyard Taco, Dutch Brothers Coffee, Orange Theory Fitness, and Dunkin Donuts are all across the street from us
- Sandoval Karate Studio, Sushi Ramen Go, Creo School, and Can Dance Studios are also our neighbors
- The Epicenter Development on the Northeast corner of Ray and Higley Roads will soon be finished
