It is important when choosing you mediation space for it to be in a neutral environment and free from bias. That is why we provide an alternative to a business premises or solicitors office setting by offering a neutral venue that can be agreed by all parties and is easily accessible.
One large meeting room will be set up typically in a boardroom layout to comfortably seat the total number of attendees, but the room can be set up in any way you prefer. Your mediation space will also be the base for the mediator(s) on the day.
A small side room will be set up for each party that can be laid out however you would like. Both of these rooms will have a flipchart, pens and a table of refreshments. Understandably it can be a difficult time for both parties so box of tissues is provided in all rooms.
The three rooms will be on the same floor unless specified, however, the two small private rooms will be at opposite ends of the building to ensure the utmost privacy.
We appreciate that mediations may go on longer than anticipated, but rest assured, we are able to facilitate your stay for as long and late as is needed. Likewise, rooms can be available from as early as you require them as the Venue is open 24/7, just let us know in advance so that someone is always on hand to look after you.
Layout and Privacy: The walls of each room are thick to minimise sound from surrounding events or from anyone listening or looking.
Invoicing: Both parties may look to split the cost of a mediation so we are able to separately invoice each party to avoid further communication.
Printing Services: If any parties require any AV facilities we ask that you let us know in advance to be able to set it up.
Assisted Access: If any individuals require assistance, arrangements can be made to facilitate their needs.
Catering options are available which can be discussed during the booking process. We can arrange for attendees to have a table of tea, coffee, water and biscuits set up in each individual room that can be topped up at the most suitable times.
