Once we've moved all the furniture over to the Tapestry we'll need to put it in the right place. This issue let's us make notes about preferences/ideals for each area. It's possible that these preferences may be in conflict (for example, there might be too much furniture listed for a given room), and details in more specific issues may contradict (and would generally trump) preferences here. Editing the relevant part of this description is preferable to adding detail in a comment, but imperfectly captured detail is better than not-captured detail!

We'll know that this issue is done when either (a) all the furniture is in a suitable place, or (b) we've moved in :-D

Wood Workshop

  • Laser cutters
  • Desk next to each laser cutter with room for the laser-cutter PC and a marked "clear zone" for people to put their own laptop while working at the cutters
  • Woodwork bench

Metal Workshop

Event Room

  • Red tables
  • Most of the static chairs

Room 29 - more secure co-working area

  • The best of the remaining desks

Meeting Room

  • The big brown table (currently broken) from the main room at Gostins? There's some white topped desks which might go better in here.


Meeting Nooks

  • Black sofa and coffee table is looking decent so far.

Open co-working area

  • Black server cabinet containing the Ultimakers, currently near the pillar. The 3D printers were intended to be on display but the server cabinet isn't the best for aesthetics.
  • The white desks on chrome frames

Workbench area

  • A clear zone for laying out, small run production, photography, timelapse, but with no storage under/around it - the 3 by 2 set of white desks on black metal frame, running across the main space
  • Electronics workbench (soldering facilities) against the window on the East side
  • A workbench with the oscilloscope and bench power supply on it to allow electronics testing
  • A workbench with one of the sewing machines on it, against the window into the wood workshop (to be near to the main windows for good light). Second sewing machine stored underneath it?
  • One of the sets of racking against the meeting room wall (as there's not much other space it would fit)
  • The brown and cream metal cupboard against the meeting room wall as the solvents cupboard
  • Additional 3D printers on the metal workshop wall
  • Vinyl cutter, heat press and sublimation printer on the run of workbenches along the West side window

WRT the laser cutters, I've said for some time that we should be looking at getting high desks next to each one so that, instead of people moving to desks elsewhere in the room to get on with planning and other work whilst the cuts are going on, they'll be more likely to stay next to the cutters.

The rule about not leaving the cutters unattended is one that regularly falls by the wayside as, to watch over them constantly means that you're not able to do anything else, and this should combat that.

Measurements of the two workshop rooms, in case it’s useful:

After the directors' meeting this evening we did a bunch of brainstorming and laying out of some of the benches/units in the main room workshop. I've updated the main issue text ^^^ with details of our thinking of where things should live.

I think we're pretty settled in now. Any remaining furniture/layout issues are best raised separately as new issues.
