Spark has beautiful, state of the art facilities for all your research and convening needs.

If you would like to use these facilities, reach out to us at


Spark’s co-working space can be transformed to host workshops or celebrations. It can comfortably hold 40 people seated or 110 standing. We have five available breakout rooms and can arrange for catering and parking.

Focus Group Room

Our focus group rooms have exceptional multi-camera video and separate audio, recordings capture subtle shifts. Observers can watch from the attached viewing room or get direct video feeds in a comfortable meeting room down the hall.

Interview Rooms

We have two small, extremely private interview rooms to host up to three interviewees.  They have the same exceptional video and audio capabilities. For those interested in exploring virtual reality with interviewees, our colleagues at McDSL have the equipment and can walk participants through it.  

SEAL Secure Data Lab

For researchers to gain access to sensitive data, the security of that data needs to be ensured. SEAL protects data, but then, through revolutionary MobiKey technology, makes it easily accessible from anywhere in the world to those researchers who should have access.
