FBDC, ALI launch co-working space

Ayala Land Inc.’s co-working space  brand Clock-in, recentlymerged with Fort Bonifacio Development Corp.’s Square One BGC, combining the strength of both companies in shared offices.

The recently-launched Clock-in BHS is located in Bonifacio High Street (BHS), the city’s shopping, dining, and entertainment centerpiece. 

Clock-in branches in BGC will be under FBDC, master planner and developer of BGC.

Clock-in BHS offers startups and small businesses the opportunity to hold office in BGC without the hassle of setting up a traditional one. 

Co-working allows people who are self-employed to share not just an office and equipment but also ideas and knowledge with like-minded people. It provides freelancers and digital nomads a more conducive workplace than what traditional cafés offer.

Co-working spaces remove the burden of monthly rentals, overhead and maintenance costs.

Clients who rent offices at Clock-in BHS enjoy extra perks like free meeting room and hot desk use every month. They also get a Clock-in Passport, a members-only perk that entitles them to 10 free hot desk passes per month to the Bonifacio Technology Center and Makati Stock Exchange branch.

 All these are on top of the amenities that come with co-working – reliable and fast Internet connection, free-flowing coffee, printing, etc.

Additionally, co-workers will enjoy exclusive sessions of LifeHacks by Clock-in, a TED Talks-like learning session wherein industry experts share powerful and inspiring ideas on business, tech, creativity, and related topics.

Clock-in BHS’s vibrant design mirrors the city’s creative energy. It has a large communal area made for brainstorming sessions or quick chit-chats where workers can just lounge, drink coffee, and throw ideas at each other. Clock-in’s wide and flexible spaces make it a choice venue for events and corporate get-togethers such as product launches, sales rallies, and even fashion shoots.

“Square One merged with Clock-in to offer more perks, options, and networking opportunities for co-workers. We made our social halls much more spacious because those seemingly casual interactions often turn out to be a minefield of ideas from which passion projects take flight,” said Myra Ocampo, deputy head of Commercial Operations, FBDC.

At a full capacity of 1,400 square meters, Clock-in BHS can seat over 300 co-workers, split into its small offices, meeting rooms, individual desks, and adaptable open spaces. 

Compared to working in cafés or renting units in buildings, co-working at Clock-in also proves to be more manageable in the long run. With flexible rates and terms, clients can customize their stay depending on their needs and budgets.

“Most of our clients are seasoned industry players like e-commerce companies diversifying their portfolios. Whether they need just a workstation for world domination or a legit headquarters in BGC that will put their business on the map, clients will find Clock-in an ideal starting point,” Ocampo said.

The merger comes a year after FBDC opened  Square One BGC, and just months after Ayala Land opened its first Clock-in co-working office space at the MSE building on Ayala avenue.

Clock-in BHS is located at the third floor of C2 Building, Bonifacio High Street Central.
