This Renovation project is complete!! See this page for the 2012 Renovation plans.

As of June 1st, 2011 SkullSpace Winnipeg Inc. has leased the third floor of 125 Adelaide in partnership with AssentWorks

The Low Down

This space is being provided to us in a 'as is' condition and needless to say from the pictures it will need some blood sweat and tears on top of the TLC. (Pictures are care of Justin)

The Plan

The goal is to have the space in a usable condition for Hackathon 7 on June 18, 2011 and with a little luck this day will double as our official Grand Opening!!!

For this to happen there several important steps that need to be completed:

  • Floor plan
    • A floor plan needs to be drafted, currently Justin is doing this.
    • Assent works needs to be involved to determine equipment connections and locations.
    • Electrical layout to accommodate proper power to every location.
    • Any plumbing for a sink or board etching area.
  • Tools - We will need a variety of tools to accomplish the project, some of the tools could be purchased by SkullSpace as they will be used by the space after renovations are complete.

After the floor plan is finalized a meeting will have to take place to determine our budget for renovations. There is also the common walls with Assent Works to consider, they would likely chip in material or cost to help get the spaces secure and separate (ie, Plywood wall for separation and maybe sound proofing)

The Status

As of Hackathon 7, June 18th:

  • a lot of walls are up
  • internet is installed and Networking is being done.
  • we have a number of chairs, tables, and a projector and screen for the education room.
