Walk: Meet the Makers of Meridian Works - 1PM Saturday 22nd September
Building BloQs is embarking on an exciting new venture. In partnership with the Greater London Authority and Enfield Council, we are working on plans to open new workshop facilities. Under the banner of Meridian Works, Enfield Council is exploring to create a creative and manufacturing district, bringing together small businesses, start-ups and freelancers who can then grow and evolve within the Meridian Water Regeneration scheme.
The new workshop space at Meridian Works aims to offer a greater and more diverse range of professional standard space and equipment to support the careers of more of London's freelance makers, small businesses and designers.
