The Problem

As many members will know the existing lighting in the hackspace is a real mess. Switching is all over the place and its hard to get hold of replacement tubes for the massive fittings. The current lighting is split across 9 switches/zones.

The Fix

This summers big hackspace infrastructure project is to rewire the lighting throughout the whole space.
Of course being a hackspace we are adding our own techno touch to this job :)
Thanks to an unnamed member we have a growing stock of second hand fittings that will be used to replace the existing 8ft fittings.
The plan to rewire also includes a move to better zoning of the lights and will call for 17 zones over the existing 9.
