What is the hub?

Meet the newest addition to Prologis RFI DIRFT.

Whether you're an occupier or an employee already on the Park, a future occupier or a local business, The Hub is a brand new facility, with 24/7 space to relax, chat, meet and learn. Anyone is welcome, at any time.

We've got a friendly front of house team to help with any queries, and The Hub is also home to Prologis RFI DIRFT's Police Community Support Officers and site management team.

Jointly funded by BT, Prologis and Aviva, The Hub is the Centre for Logistics Training and Education, home to the Prologis Warehousing and Logistics Training Programme (PWLTP) – more about that below.

A place to meet

Board meeting, training course or informal catch up, the Hub has plenty of meeting space. There are two meeting rooms and three training studios available on site.

Check out availability through our online booking system below.

A place to learn

You might find yourself visiting us for a group learning session through the Prologis Warehousing and Logistics Training Programme (PWLTP), hosting your own workshop or attending an event. The training studios can be used as one big space or divided into three rooms.

To find out if this space is available for you to book, please check out availability through our online booking system below.

A place to relax

Whether you're looking for somewhere to meet people, somewhere to relax before or after work or somewhere quiet to concentrate - the Hub is your space. Our breakout areas have lots of natural light and greenery, along with plenty of seating, including tables and chairs, and comfy sofas.

There are plenty of power sockets, along with tea and coffee facilities, and vending machines for other drinks and snacks. Toilet and shower facilities are also available too.

Meeting Rooms

Located away from the hustle and bustle of the breakout areas, The Hub offers two bookable meeting rooms and three training rooms which offer flexible layout options.

Tea and coffee is available and our front of house team can help arrange catering with local suppliers, if you need it.

If you are an occupier on DIRFT III, the use of the training and meeting rooms is free of charge as this is included within the current Estate Service Charges. There is a small charge if you are not a current occupier on DIRFT III. Please contact for more information.

No matter what type of meeting or event you're planning, we've got a space to fit.

If you are unsure of the best space to book, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
