[edit] What Areas in the Space Will This Affect

All

[edit] Who Will Be Doing It

Dan User:Terminationshok

[edit] Why This Will Be Good

The new lighting system will be much more pleasing to work under. It would use less energy, especially if combined with sensors and automation to turn down or off unused lights. It would provide hardware for hacking on. It will be super hi-tech and becoming of a hackerspace.

[edit] Why This Will Be Bad

It is new tech and could take longer, or be more expensive than planned. This will be the second time for me to install this in a building. People who hack the computer controlled lights might instruct them to display patterns that are annoying to others. It might be too awesome.

[edit] How Long Will It Take

A similar job took 3 months to complete. Depends on other construction. Would roll out in stages.

[edit] In A Fantastic World, What Extra Budget Would You Like

A fundraising effort will be executed to provide the 5-15k needed. (No use of Noisebridge general fund) We will install as many stages as are funded. I would like help with the ac power distribution.
