The Terms apply to your use of our products, services, and co-working and co-storage spaces, and also apply to (and are incorporated into) the Service Agreement which you, the client, may have entered into electronically through one of our online sign-up platforms (which we refer to simply as your Agreement). Your Agreement contains all the terms we have agreed to, including these Terms, and supersedes any previous agreement you may have with us for the same services. To the extent that you book rooms, desks, or other resources on an hourly basis (a “Booking”), you also agree to be bound by the Terms and Conditions applicable to such Bookings, as those Terms and Conditions may be updated from time to time.


  1. Furnished Office Accommodation. We are to provide the number of serviced (and furnished, if applicable) accommodations for which you have agreed to pay in the Forge Facility stated in your Agreement, or that you selected during your sign-up process (also referred to in this Agreement as “Accommodation(s)”). Your Agreement lists the Accommodations we have initially allocated for your use. Occasionally, we may need to allocate different accommodations, but these will be of equivalent size and function and we will attempt to obtain your approval with respect to such different accommodations in advance. Notwithstanding the forgoing, private office suites will generally not be furnished with any accommodations and are required to be self-furnished by you.

2.1 Additional Amenities and Resources. As a Forge Member you may also be provided access to additional amenities such as a kitchen, break area, fridge, conference rooms, call booths, etc. where and when available, provided that waivers or other additional terms and conditions are agreed to, as applicable. These amenities are provided at the sole discretion of Forge and may be altered or canceled at any time without notice. 

2.2 Additional Paid Amenities. Premium amenities such as access to a golf simulator or event discounts may also be available to be added to your membership for an additional fee, at the discretion of Forge and as agreed upon between you and Forge.

  1. Office and Professional Services. We or other providers may offer you additional services outside of those detailed in these Terms. Any such additional services shall be described, and associated terms and conditions agreed to, in one or more separate services agreement. You understand and agree that Forge does not warrant, and explicitly disclaims any liability for, any such additional services unless Forge is the stated services provider in the separate services agreement.

5.1. Office: You will be asked to sign an inventory of all Accommodation(s), including furniture and equipment, you are permitted to use, together with a note of its condition, and details of the keys, entry cards, or other access credentials issued to you. You may at any time have as many employees working in your Accommodation(s) as there are allowable workstations. This number is noted in your Agreement. If at any time you exceed the number of employees allowed, those employees will pay the hourly or daily rate for additional accommodations. This fee will be in addition to the monthly supplemental fee and Hotdesk fee.

Forge will be responsible for placing and lowering any goods, only available during business hours, and will provide a forklift and forklift driver for such service. Note that any pallet storage spot can be occupied by different goods over the 30 day period. In other words, multiple pallets can be moved in and out of a given spot.

For a period of less than a month, the applicable fee will be applied on a daily basis. You agree to pay promptly all (i) sales, use, excise and any other taxes, surcharges or license fees which you are required to pay to any governmental authority (and, at our request, will provide to use evidence of such payment), and (ii) any taxes paid by us attributable to your Accommodation, including, without limitation, any gross receipts, rent and occupancy taxes, surcharge fees or tangible personal property taxes. If you agree to participate in our Direct Debit Program, payment of fixed and variable charges will be made automatically through this mechanism. If you provided a method of payment during the sign-up process, you agree to: (a) allow us to automatically, and on a recurring basis, charge that payment method at the intervals indicated during checkout; and (b) maintain a valid method of payment on file in your online account so that such automatic and recurring charges will not be rejected or refused until this Agreement is terminated.
  1. Pay-as-you-use Services. Fees for pay-as-you-use services, plus applicable taxes, in accordance with our published rates which may change from time to time, are invoiced in arrears on or around the 10th of the month and are due and payable on the 1st day (or such other day as we designate) of the month following the calendar month in which the services were provided.
  1. Late Payment. If you do not pay fees when due, a service fee of $25.00 plus 5% of the amount of unpaid fees will be charged on all overdue balances under $1,000.00, and a fee of $50.00 plus 5% of the amount of unpaid fees will be charged on all overdue balances of $1,000.00 or greater. If you dispute a part of any invoice you must pay the amount not in dispute by the due date or be subject to late fees. The amount of interest and fees we charge will be the lesser of the amounts stated, or the State’s legally enforceable maximum, whichever is the lesser. In the case of U.S. Government Contracts, the amount of interest and fees we charge will be lesser of the amounts stated or those set by the Secretary of the Treasury and implemented by the Prompt Payment Act.
  1. Insufficient Check Fees. You will pay a fee of $25.00 or the maximum amount permitted by law for the return of any payment for insufficient funds.
  1. Subordination. Your Agreement is subordinate to our lease with our landlord and to any other Agreements to which our lease with our landlord is subordinate.
  1. Annual Increase. We will increase your current standard service fee on each and any annual anniversary of the start date of your Agreement by 4% or the CPI, whichever is greater, or such other broadly equivalent index which we substitute, over the previous year. This will only apply to agreements that have an original start and end date constituting more than a 12 month term. Renewals do not fall under this category and will be reviewed as per clause 19 above.
