Additional COVID-19 Precautions


It is extremely important to us at desk chair Workspace to keep our members safe and our space clean. Coworking communities, as a service, thrive to allow professionals to have an area outside of their home or remote workplace to be productive as possible, and we want to be able to facilitate that need.

In order to help keep our facility functioning and safe, we have implemented some new changes to the building such as our new HVAC purifying system. While this may not be a feature we see on the day-to-day, it is extremely valuable to the health and well-being of our members and staff.

The pandemic has heightened all of our awareness surrounding health topics and daily activities that could put our health at risk.

Things we are doing: 


  • Blue light surface disinfector
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Sneeze guards in hot desk area
  • Mandatory maks in common areas
  • Socially distanced Dedicated Desk area
  • Motion censored lights and sinks
  • Air purifying system in the HVAC system

“GPS’ technologies are meant for “POP” The three primaiy contributors to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) are: Particulates Odor & Pathogens.

Particulates: During the GPS cleaning process, air­borne particulates (dust, pet dander, pollen) are treated and theQ drawn together increasing their size and mass. Larger particulates are more easily captured effectively increasing the efficiency of a home’s air filters.

Odor & Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs ): During the GPS cleaning process, cooking odors, pet odors and chemical odors, (like formaldehyde) are broken down into basic compounds free of any smell.

"Health has always been, and will continue to be desk chair’s main priority throughout all COVID-19 regulations and beyond."

Benjamin McConnell

We can all relate to this idea that life will take us down a grand path that we never anticipated. We feel like life should take us on a journey one day, taking us down twists and turns and then BAM you wake up with a vision and purpose… at least that’s what we all hope happens to us. We all have “big ideas” and “dreams” but many of us don’t have the grit to put it into action, I mean in reality, life seems to just get in the way, am I right? However, some actually do. I would like to introduce you to one of our first desk chair coworkers AND our first Member Spotlight featuring Benjamin McConnell. Benjamin McConnell has over 15 years’ experience working in large enterprise IT departments, Ben’s true passion is in helping small business owners thrive.

As a certified Enterprise Software Architect, Ben has a passion for business architecture.

Q: Ben, tell us a little more about Blue Parable

B: Blue Parable was founded to address the out-of-control complexity and cost associated with today's business software. We provide software and services focused on helping small businesses compete through internet sales channels. We believe that software and the internet create great opportunities for small businesses to compete with large businesses on a national scale. But we also know that it's still too difficult for small businesses to get started. That's where we come in. Our hope is to become a trusted partner and help take businesses to new heights through internet sales.

Q: What the heck does Blue Parable mean exactly?

B: Blue is my favorite color and parable is a theoretical technology term.  

Q: How did you choose your profession?

B: I didn’t exactly choose my profession actually. Honestly, I was ditching class a lot in high school and one of my teachers took an interest in me. Vicki Thompson was her name. She recommended that I apply for a job through the school district. I didn’t have big visions or huge aspirations growing up but as I got into my career, I quickly saw that I wanted to own my own business one day and that is how I started on this path.  

Q: So, you actually were one of the first members here at desk chair, tell me about that!

B: I think I saw it under construction one day and I walked into to check it out. Then, when things started finishing up, I took another tour and here we are today- in my favorite corner spot in the building. I like to keep an eye on my Fiancés shop across the street, I can see her from my window. So cute 😊  

Q: Why do you enjoy working at desk chair workspace? 

B: There are a lot of reasons! The staff is great! ( thanks Ben ) I love all the amenities, BEER and lots and lots of coffee. I really enjoy all the events, especially the rooftop. The networking is great, financially it would be stupid for me not to continue here because of all the people I have met!  

Q: Tell us, what is your favorite part about coworking in general?

B: I love the different disciplines of it, all of the knowledge and skills under one roof. It is really cool all the different people you get to meet through coworking.  

Q: What is your favorite part about working specifically at desk chair coworking?

B: The member happy hour is always a great time  

Q: What do you like to do for fun?

B: Build businesses… and drink beer of course.
