From Scottish Government guidance and subsequent legislation, Wasps buildings should only be accessed by tenants who are unable to practice their work from home. No visitors are permitted to enter any Wasps building at this time. This includes family members, clients, collaborators, and buyers. This also affects the hosting of workshops, which will not be permitted until at least the end of January. This will be reviewed by the Scottish Government.

Wasps is following the Scottish Government Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance for Creative Studios and Shared Workplaces, which can be read in full here. Following updates to this Guidance, Wasps is permitted to allow tenants to run workshops in adherence to the Scottish Government ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for the community learning and development sector’ which can be found here. Under this Government Guidance Wasps buildings in Tier 4 are not permitted to host workshops. For those buildings in Tier 3 or below workshops are still permitted.
In August we prepared Workshop Guidance to allow you to prepare for running workshops again. Please note that anyone wishing to start workshops must complete the risk assessment forms downloadable on the right hand side of this page, both for fire safety and COVID-19. These must be completed in full and approved by the Wasps Property Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) before workshops can commence.
Also downloadable from this page are sample completed risk assessment forms, which you can either work from for guidance, or edit to suit your individual circumstances. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the Property Team on the email above.
In line with this guidance Wasps will also be permitting visitors to your studio buildings in Tier 3 or below building whose visit is for the purpose of your practice. Examples of these kinds of visitors would be clients, collaborators, buyers. Visitors are not permitted for buildings in Tier 4 regions.
Please read and follow all guidelines below if holding workshops or inviting visitors into the building. Any visitors must also follow Tenant Guidance in place.
