Hire com­pany ex­plor­ing space

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - LET’S EAT -

ECU has taken steps to turn lec­ture the­atres be­tween classes and semesters from a ghost town to a hive of ac­tiv­ity.

ECU has listed 17 spa­ces across the two cam­puses on Space­toCo, a space-shar­ing web­site where busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions ad­ver­tise space avail­able for short-term hire.

The brain­child of Hills res­i­dents Jeremy Hurst, Daniel McCullen and Daniel Franco, the web­site was launched in 2016 and now has more than 300 lo­ca­tion of­fer­ings.

ECU man­ager of qual­ity and ser­vices delivery Karen Gil­more said state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties sat dor­mant, par­tic­u­larly be­tween semesters.

“Hol­i­day pe­ri­ods can be quiet on both the Mt Law­ley and Joon­dalup cam­puses,” she said.

“We wanted to make the com­mu­nity aware that there are state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties cen­trally lo­cated with easy ac­cess for a va­ri­ety of pur­poses from meet­ings, con­fer­ences, train­ing sem­i­nars to sports clubs.”

She said spa­ces were also avail­able on the Bunbury cam­pus, which should be on the site soon.

Mr McCullen said any­thing from back­yards to ware­houses were avail­able to rent out short-term.

Space can be ad­ver­tised on the site for free, with Space­toCo tak­ing a small cut of the book­ing.
