Revision as of 11:32, 30 November 2012

This is the list of things that need to be done before we can open to the public. In some cases there's a responsible person noted and if you are thinking of things in that area or want to do some work which hasn't been planned or agreed, please talk to that person first and check that what you'd like to do fits with the communith plans.

What does it mean to be responsible for one of these areas?

The main thing here is not that someone volunteers to do all the work, but that they take responsibility for making sure stuff happens, whether that means doing it themselves or working with others. For most tasks, this means thinking what's possible, checking with the community (eg on this list or in a meeting) what's wanted, maybe getting the community to choose from some options, checking how the money looks (for things we'll buy from core funds - meaning talking to Laura/Simon/Jonny), and then making stuff happen :) . Laura/Simon/Jonny are here to support this with legal/financial help and will ensure we don't overspend and so on. We need to share the tasks we have between us so no one collapses from overwork, and there's lots of different things to do so hopefully everyone can find something they enjoy.

  • walls in secure workshop - bits more paint needed
  • carpet tiles


  • kitchen - fitting


  • fire detection


  • beanbags / sofas and other chairs etc for kitchen and mezzanine social space


  • need tables and chairs

tables being offered generally free (several offers already in)

silvermans - second hand office kit - check for chairs

need to work out what chairs we want - stacking or folding for classroom - needs further discussion

  • signs (for outside the door)

Laura has spec for these, but happy for someone else to step up to design and order them

at this stage this means costing up the fablab kit and getting lead times in a list on the wiki, and working out special requirements such as extraction

  • layout of secure workshop and bench positions etc
