Project Overview

For the past year and a half we have been doing our weekly meetups in Tom's workshop. While its been a perfect space we are currently running our of space. The past few months things have been getting a bit cramped, especially when we hold project nights and events. It is time to move on and create a new bigger and better space. Unfortunately this comes with some new challenges. Luckily we have some great members and one of them (Chris) organised a space for us which is affordable.

The new space is essentially a double garage and some side rooms which we can convert into a new space. Unfortunately the next phase of BinarySpace means that we need to generate some income to cover stuff such as rent and consumables. The space is also empty so we would need to add some infrastructure. To cover most of this we are looking at implementing a membership system. While we would all love a free space with lots of tools, it is not realistic. Also membership fees allow us to save for more expensive tools such as CNC Routers and Lathes.

The space is currently being cleared and we can possibly start setting it up on the 6th of December 2014 (todo list items).

Space is up and running and meetups are being held at the new space
