Local Authorities

Meanwhile Delivery Services

Meanwhile Space designs innovative Meanwhile® solutions to vacant and underused spaces, working across sectors to deliver Meanwhile projects and strategies, operate affordable workspace, and deliver longer term Meanwhile developments.

We have developed multiple products and services that respond to issues identified by local authorities, developers, community groups, property owners and others concerned with place-making, research/toolkits, high street issues, problem buildings, regeneration, enterprise and innovation. These services break down as:

  • Space Activation; negotiation, design, renovation, concept and management. Tenant recruitment, business incubators and hubs, capacity building for entrepreneurs
  • Urban design, policy, strategy and place-making
  • Business engagement/ training/ mentoring, business support, measuring economic performance
  • Public engagement, creative consultation, partnership development

We design bespoke projects, negotiate with landlords, take leases, facilitate communities of interest coming together and enable them to take space safely, make the building fit for purpose, and manage the risks.

We complement this with strategy, research, engagement, urban design and place-making projects that support place-based regeneration in a particular area where we may not take buildings on.

We also offer a range of support
 to existing traders (eg School for Shops, Town Team development) to help them survive and thrive (thereby avoiding more empty spaces being created).
