Firebrand Collective House Rules

Office + Studio Use

  • Be respectful of the items around you, both those that belong to Firebrand Collective and those that belong to your coworkers. You break it, you buy it.
  • Do not bring your own furniture into the office or studio without permission of Firebrand management.
  • Same with pets. We love pets, but please don’t bring Fido to work unless given permission by management.
  • Alcohol may be brought into the studio only with express permission of the management.
  • Do not adjust the temperature. This is a communal space and we keep the temperature at a comfortable level for most members.
  • Do not share your pass code.
  • Do not make copies of your building key.
  • When bringing clients into Firebrand Collective, please meet them at the front door of the building.

  • Set pieces may be moved, but must remain in the studio.
  • It is the responsibility of the members to keep the studio clean and tidy.
  • The studio must be left in the same condition it was found.

Noise
