* Most of the space has a lowered ceiling, hiding ventilation and other ducts. it's about 1 meter lower than the actual ceiling (2.8m vs 3.8m high). It's made of white/beige tiles of metal, suspended from the ceiling. It stops about a meter? short from the north wall (right on the map).

* We have neighbouring spaces on the north wall, the neighbours west have left and we added their space to ours. We have no neighbours behind the south wall.

* The small space on the east (bottom) side, has a row of RJ45 and power sockets on the wall, just below the window, besides that there are only a few power sockets in the space (but both smaller rooms have power and rj45 sockets)
 
* On the east side, the floor above us extends a bit by a meter? or so from our most easter wall, extending north and south, this 'outdoor' ceiling starts at the same height as where our windows stop. The space between this outdoor ceiling is 'accessible' and is mainly empty or used for ducts, this space goes up to our real ceiling.
 
* We have neighbouring spaces on the north and west walls, no one moved in yet in the space north (right) of us.

Our current space in the former ACTA building.

Address

Louwesweg 1 1066 EA Amsterdam Netherlands


Practical Information for VISITING THE SPACE

We are open many evenings as keyfobs can be requested by all our members. Currently IRC (techinc@OFTC) is the easiest place to see if anyone is planning to open on any particular evening. We also have an open social evening at the space every Wednesday from 7pm.

The current state of the space is visible on our homepage at http://techinc.nl or in our IRC channel.

There is also a SpacePhone (a mobile phone that is always located in the space) that can be reached at: ''landline' +31 85 201 6320'

Please call one of the above numbers when you are out front and require someone to open the door for you.

Electrical power and lights switch system

Many of the lights, power outlets and devices are controlled via a network of switched power outlets. Webinterface: http://powerbar.ti/

There are also some physical switch interfaces. For example Bash_the_Lights and PowerbarQuadSwitch

More info on the project page: https://wiki.techinc.nl/index.php/Baytech-inc and API: https://github.com/MerlijnWajer/powerbars/blob/master/README

Space status button

If you are the first to enter or last to leave, use the space status button to mark the space open or closed respectively.

The button is located inside, right behind the door, next to the coat rack. Press it once to open and again once to close. If the leds on the TechInc logo are on, the status is open.
