SAN FRANCISCO (May 16, 2023) – FlexHQ, a pioneer in flexible cowarehousing solutions, is proud to partner with Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, to create a workspace design rooted in restoration and environmental responsibility.

“Scalable workspaces and sustainability go hand in hand.” said Laurent Opman, CEO at FlexHQ. “We aim to set a new standard for the cowarehousing industry by demonstrating that repurposing existing structures is not only good for the environment, but it’s also a viable solution for meeting the evolving needs of modern businesses.”

Ware Malcomb’s Interiors and Branding team’s sustainable design expertise played a crucial role in creating environmentally friendly features for the cowarehouse. In addition to EV charging stations, FlexHQ is upgrading and retrofitting the entire lighting system and will utilize recycled materials, energy-saving fixtures, and green technologies to reduce its carbon footprint and minimize its environmental impact.

In addition to creating an eco-friendly prototype, Ware Malcomb emphasized the importance of functionality and community preservation in the design process. “We were very conscious of the embodied carbon in our material selection,” said Bhavini Hardev, Studio Manager at Ware Malcomb. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with FlexHQ, helping the growth of their business while also reducing their carbon footprint through thoughtful design and reuse of existing structures.”

In late 2022, FlexHQ opened its first cowarehouse in Los Angeles. Now, due to high demand, the company plans to expand into Texas, Florida, Tennessee and Colorado. The next location is set to open in Denver’s business district in mid-summer 2023. The 75,000 square foot facility is designed to help businesses succeed. Offering 67 scalable individual warehouse spaces between 300-3,000 sf and 21 private offices and hot desks as well as a range of amenities and services; including, high-speed internet, state-of-the-art conference rooms, daily shipping and receiving services, fully stocked communal kitchen, a professional photo studio, and a podcast studio all within a secured facility. In addition, FlexHQ’s onsite team of experts is available for support.
