Building Owner Buildout

  • What's been done?
  • What's going to be done? When?



  • we need 240v
  • electrician has determined that they have to run 240v anyway
  • we need subpanels
    • Kevin proposes we have electrician run cable and install subpanels, big cable, hard work, needs to be done exactly right
      • general agreement, this is worth paying for, even if we have to put up another vote for the cost.
      • will ask building owner's electrician to quote the effort for us, include material and breakers
  • We will run branch circuits, Dave B. mentioned having a "friendly" electrician to help with termination if we pull cable and rough out.

Wall Building

  • walls critical path for moving wood shop on schedule
  • Tim Yelvington to put together wall BOM by wednesday (3/11/2020) so we can buy material thursday/friday and get started building next weekend
  • Dave S. and Brian Wingate to research sound insulation options and make recommendation next week

Plan for the Weekend/Week

  • move tools and things into space that will be useful
    • trello has card for this with list of things we will want over there, add anything you think may be useful, check off stuff if already there
    • kevin willing to provide air compressor once we have a way to power it.
  • Get as many people as are willing to clear space of shelves, both saturday and sunday, 10:00-whenever, Chris to unlock saturday, Kevin and Scott to unlock sunday
  • after space clear, clean floors and layout wall locations with chalk or tape
    • check for obstructions to walls, sprinkler heads are the big concern, can move lights

Owner Buildout

  • stairwells painted
  • waiting on plumber to install/provide standpipe for new plumbing
  • owner will be providing credit for our expenses building out bathroom
  • waiting on electrician to bid main panel still, need to ask them for quote on subpanels

Dave V. to write up and publish operating procedures and rules for new building, we MUST not annoy other tenants or the landlord
