Engine Shed launches ‘The Interchange’

The Interchange at Engine Shed, Bristol

As part of its growth ambitions, Engine Shed has launched a brand new workspace for Bristol, The Interchange.

The new space is a managed work area within Engine Shed that hosts the strategic partners in Engine Shed’s mission for inclusivity for the region’s economic growth.

Early tenants for the new workspace include Business West, GW4 and Bristol is Open. The Interchange also acts as a soft landing space for Invest Bristol & Bath (IBB) clients.

The Interchange opened on 1st September 2017 to support with Engine Shed’s actions as a contributor to stable economic growth in the West of England, providing around 2,200 sq ft of new workspace for members to work, network and collaborate with partners, enjoying the benefits of a prominent enterprise zone location.


Engine Shed Director Nick Sturge comments: “Engine Shed has been pretty much fully occupied since we opened in 2013, and while we are sorry to lose two of our founding partners, the LEP and IBB, their recent move into the Combined Authority and relocation creates an opportunity for us to be able to host some emerging strategic partners.

“This will enhance our ability to learn, share and connect and go even further to stimulate long-term, sustainable and inclusive economic growth. This newly configured space gives us extra capacity in advance of Engine Shed 2 which will make the transition smoother.”
