Following the nearly unanimous vote at the AGM on 2015-12-03, Hackspace 2.5 was given the go-ahead to proceed!

It was decided that:

We will rent additional units on the ground floor of Roden House, beneath our current location. Below are 4 images - outline plans of our current space and the new units, and a potential way we could use this space - this is purely for illustrative purposes and is likely to change a lot!

The space will allow us to increase the size of most of our most used spaces, and will give us room for bigger, better, tools. We will be able to put stairs and disabled access throughout the space, and move our “front door” to ground, step free, level. A space downstairs could become a bigger “blue room”/classroom, which we could make into a bookable resource. The large space downstairs has some concrete flooring, which could change what tools we can use. In short, there are huge opportunities!

It doesn’t tick all the boxes - there is no outside space and it doesn’t fix our parking issues, but it would be a massive improvement on what we have now.
