Feathering their Nest: Cuckooz Nest interview

first_imgCreating a sense of community is at the heart of what Cuckooz Nest is all aboutSource: billy boltonOf course, some may question how productive it is to have young children separated from their parents by a single door. When Property Week visited the nursery area, for instance, Rosier’s baby girl gave up on what she was doing and came crawling after her mum. She only started smiling when she got what she wanted – a cuddle. But Rosier says this is not typical of the way Cuckooz Nest operates.“One reason it took a while to get off the ground was finding the right space,” she says. “That’s both in terms of access to transport and how beautiful it is, but also the fact that it has two separate entrances. We have an interconnecting door for fire reasons and in case you do want to go in [to the crèche], but it’s actively discouraged. The idea is that you drop them off at one door, say goodbye and the kid doesn’t necessarily know you’re going next door.”The Cuckooz Nest concept appears to be popular. According to Rosier, the building has a waiting list of more than 100 people and that’s without any big marketing push. “It’s really been about soft marketing – word of mouth,” she says. “It’s been really strong. I feel that there is untapped demand for this, so I see it expanding very quickly.”Bigger plansIndeed, while the first space in Farringdon is aimed at freelancers and entrepreneurs, Rosier and O’Neill have bigger plans for the business.“We’re starting to make inroads into larger businesses that would potentially take an allocation of desks from Cuckooz Nest to allow parents to return to work in a comfortable environment with their kid next door,” says O’Neill. “That’s the longer-term picture.The Ray development next door to Cuckooz Nest in Farringdon is a case in point. Here, Viridis Real Estate is converting The Guardian’s former home into modern offices, with LinkedIn secured as anchor tenant. “We’re talking to the landlord there about maybe taking some space,” says Rosier.“The growth of Cuckooz Nest is really about us moving into a large Derwent or Landsec scheme, for example. We can become the anchor tenant and that is something the landlord can offer to all of their other tenants. So somebody could be working for Deloitte, for example, on the fifth floor and their kid could be on the ground floor.” Co-working queens: Charlie Rosier and Fabienne O’NeillSource: benjamin eagleCuckooz Nest officially launched its first site on Monday in Clerkenwell and is the brain child of Charlie Rosier and Fabienne O’Neill. The pair met 10 years ago when Rosier was a land buyer for a residential developer and O’Neill was working in marketing and events for a publishing company. “We started to meet socially and the rest is history,” says O’Neill. “We’ve been best friends ever since.”The duo’s first enterprise was a “design-led, customer-focused” serviced apartment concept called Cuckooz, which was set up 18 months ago and by the end of the summer will have eight sites in the capital. Soon after launching the business, Rosier had her first child, prompting her to come up with the Cuckooz Nest concept. Enter the nest…Source: billy boltonSecuring planning permission for the building could have presented a significant challenge – after all, Cuckooz Nest combines two use classes that aren’t typically combined.However, Rosier says that it was relatively straightforward. “The local MP, [shadow foreign secretary] Emily Thornberry, and the ward councillors were really supportive,” she says. “The biggest challenge was that they’d never seen an application for D1 use and B1 use in the same space. It was about getting people to understand the business model.”There is also the small matter of operating in an increasingly competitive market. Barely a week seems to go by without the launch of another co-working company, but Rosier believes Cuckooz Nest has an edge on its big rivals.“I don’t really see us as a flexible workspace in the sense that we’re competing with WeWork,” she says. “I see this as a unique model – a hybrid flexible office with childcare.”Find out more – Flexible workspace competition heats upWhat’s more, far from operating as a loss-leader, the crèche element is critical to Cuckooz Nest’s business plan. “The revenue is very much driven by the childcare element,” says Rosier. “If you think about it, we have 21 children and 10 hours a day, so 210 hours a day of crèche space to sell. That can be charged at up to £23 per hour, whereas the desk will rent out at a market average of £2.50 per hour. So the childcare element makes us much more profitable than a typical co-working business.”Even with seemingly high costs for the crèche facility, Rosier believes that Cuckooz Nest is still a cost-effective option for young parents. “Having a nanny was the only real option when my daughter was six weeks old,” she says. “I pay her £12 per hour, but I also pay her pension, holiday and so on. If you use this four hours a day, five days a week, the price comes down to £11.50 an hour. It’s cheaper than having a nanny, plus you’re getting out of the house and being close to like-minded people.”O’Neill adds that creating a sense of community is at the heart of what Cuckooz Nest is all about. “We’re creating a community of like-minded individuals at a time in your life where that kind of support is really important,” she says. “I’m not a parent, but I know there can be a real element of isolation.”While the venture is aimed at young parents, you don’t necessarily have to be a parent to take space in Cuckooz Nest. The space can accommodate 21 children but has 36 desks. Again, the idea was a result of the pair’s personal experiences. “We were a two-woman team and obviously if we were to occupy the space as a user or a member, we’d need a desk that didn’t have the childcare attached,” says O’Neill.center_img Cuckooz Nest is a replicable concept across London and beyondSource: billy boltonIn terms of immediate plans, one new space is under construction in Aldgate East and another, also in the City fringe, is under negotiation. “I think we’ll stick with the City fringe for now, but this is a model that could absolutely be replicated in other cities such as Manchester, Bristol and so on,” says Rosier. “People on Facebook groups are saying things like ‘please bring it to Bromley’.”Other opportunities may be forthcoming elsewhere in London. The Farringdon building is owned by the “lovely” Dyson family – it was previously a Dyson showroom – and Rosier says further partnerships with their landlord may follow. “They have a large commercial property portfolio and we’re already discussing with them some stuff that is more west London focused,” she says.Rosier and O’Neill also believe that there are real synergies between the original Cuckooz business and Cuckooz Nest. The idea is to present a one-stop service for mixed-use developers. “They are very much aligned businesses,” says O’Neill. “The third project we’re looking at for Cuckooz Nest is part and parcel of a bigger project where Cuckooz will occupy the residential units and Cuckooz Nest will occupy the commercial space downstairs.”How quickly the pair can roll out the Cuckooz Nest model remains to be seen. But what is certain is that they are providing a solution for a very real need. Employees at the likes of Google and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office already benefit from access to onsite childcare – why not other workers?last_img read more

North Carolina knocks off Arkansas, rolls into Sweet 16

first_imgUSA TODAYNorth Carolina State upsets No. 1 Villanova JACKSONVILLE — For the longest time this season, North Carolina looked like a collection of talented parts that lacked the focus or adaptability to survive very long in the NCAA tournament.But the Tar Heels found something late in the season, and their resiliency has been rewarded with a trip to the Sweet 16. North Carolina, the No. 4 seed in the West Region, survived a stiff challenge from No. 5 seed Arkansas, winning 87-78 at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. BOX SCORE: North Carolina 87, Arkansas 78 In a frenetic, sometimes sloppy game that turned into a festival of fouls in the second half, North Carolina went to a small lineup out of necessity. It sparked a 17-4 run, breaking open a game in which neither team could get a lead bigger than a few points. North Carolina guard Marcus Paige hit a pair of three-pointers during the run, finishing with 22 points on 5-of-14 shooting.Arkansas shot 37% and committed 21 turnovers, ruining a terrific performance from junior guard Michael Qualls, who made eight of 19 field goals and finished with 27 points. The Razorbacks had 18 offensive rebounds but got only 16 second-chance points out of them, while North Carolina had 25 points on 17 offensive rebounds.Arkansas had some chances late to cut into North Carolina’s lead, but Justin Jackson’s layup with 1:50 remaining gave the Tar Heels an 80-71 lead, ending any threat. Arkansas was bidding to make its first Sweet 16 appearance since 1996. The Razorbacks’ loss leaves the SEC with just one team — Kentucky — out of the five that got into the NCAA tournament. ​GALLERY: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE ROUND OF 32last_img read more

How Christian McCaffrey trained for his monster start to the 2019 NFL season

first_imgAn indication that Christian McCaffrey could be set for a huge 2019 came in April when the Panthers uploaded an image of their running back at the start of their offseason schedule.In the picture, McCaffrey — who was said to lack the “desired size of an every-down back” in one pre-draft scouting report before he entered the NFL in 2017 — looked like a muscle-popping WWE action figure, complete with gargantuan biceps and shoulders. Cam Newton thinks Christian McCaffrey will have 1,000 yards rushing and receiving this season There are other key members of McCaffrey’s inner circle too — including nutritionists and a chef who sends meals from Colorado twice a week.”He is absolutely meticulous about everything that he does,” Kula explained. “Where Christian separates himself is his attention to detail and absolute focus when it comes to his goals.”He might not be bigger, but so far McCaffrey has undoubtedly been better. Perhaps better than everyone else in the NFL too. The photo went viral, though the reaction over a “bigger” McCaffrey amused his personal trainer.”It’s funny that everyone thinks he looks so much bigger because he didn’t gain any weight,” Brian Kula told Omnisport. Related Newscenter_img coming for it all pic.twitter.com/WQRIttO1qQ— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) April 30, 2019It was after an underwhelming rookie season — when the eighth-overall pick only rushed for 435 yards to go along with 651 through the air — that McCaffrey reunited with Kula, who coached the running back when he was both a football player and track athlete during his high-school days in Denver.There were encouraging results in 2018, when McCaffrey broke the NFL single-season record for most receptions by a running back en route to a franchise-record 1,965 all-purpose yards, despite being unable to complete a full offseason with Kula due to a slight injury.That was not a problem when the two got together ahead of this campaign — and the results have been incredible.McCaffrey enters the Panthers’ Week 6 game with the Buccaneers in London leading the NFL with a whopping 866 yards from scrimmage. That is the most by any player through the first five games since Hall of Famer Jim Brown had 988 in 1963.A shock? Not to his coach.”If I’m being totally honest, we’re seeing exactly what we thought we would see,” Kula admitted.McCaffrey has combined speed, elusiveness and power to devastating effect; he showcased his athleticism last weekend by going in for a touchdown despite being flipped as he hurdled Jaguars cornerback Tre Herndon.Best all-round Running Back in the league @run__cmc you are [email protected] pic.twitter.com/5ljuTKVWjh— NFL UK (@NFLUK) October 7, 2019Yet perhaps surprisingly given his incredible physique, McCaffrey’s training regime does not feature hours upon hours in the gym.”He really only trains about five or six hours a week,” Kula explained.”We feel like less is more, we definitely want him 100 percent healthy and the way that we train, we’re targeting the fast-twitch muscles. We incorporate a lot of recovery and rest with the training and what we do is very high output.”We concentrate a lot on speed mechanics, speed loading, acceleration principles, which also translates to his lateral change of direction, as well.”In the weight room we’re very unconventional with the type of lifting. We’re pretty much after a concept called ‘mass specific force,’ where we want him to be as strong and powerful as possible, without putting on any additional weight so we can keep his top-end speed up.”His body-fat percentage came down (this year) and where we were concentrating on his strength was in his hips and in his legs. What you’ve seen is a reconfigured body, not necessarily a bigger body — certainly more powerful. We concentrated in the weight room on the deadlift and the development of his posterior chain.”This photo says it all… pic.twitter.com/AQvKCCxAn8— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) September 22, 2019Kula has continued to speak with McCaffrey during the early stages of the regular season. The running back called his coach before boarding the flight to London earlier this week to get a daily fitness routine, as well as tips on hydration and travel. “He would do as much as I asked him to do but has finally wrapped his head around recovery and rest being more important,” Kula noted.
