Practical Information

We are open many evenings as keys are available to 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 or in our android app (available from the market or github).

There is also a SpacePhone that can be reached at: 'landline' +31 85 201 6320

Light switches at front door

There is a 433MHz remote hanging at the door.

  • Channel 1 switches the lights in the middle of the room
  • Channel 2 switches the lights above the electronics workbenches
  • Channel 3 switches the lackrack, the audio amp, and the lights over the sofas and kitchen area

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.

Other data

  • 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).
  • The lowered ceiling also has bright TL-Lights mounted on them, which is currently the only light in the main area.
  • The south wall, has three doors, giving access to our two smaller spaces and a door to the maintance/duct shaft, the latter space cannot be actively used by us, but contains sewage and water tubing we might be able to use.
  • The south wall is made of one layer of compacted black stone and a layer of bricks, the north and west walls seem to be two layer plasterboards, either empty in between of filled with isolation material?
  • The south wall also features a red box where there used to be a firehose, it's build into the compacted stone layer of the wall, and has one hole going towards the maintance/duct shaft.
  • The east wall (bottom on the floorplan), is mainly window, starting about 90~100cm from the floor and stopping about 30cm before the lowered ceiling. The last 30cm are wooden panels.
  • The west (top) wall connects to the hallway and one of our neighbours, features one door to the exit. It also has a whole near top connecting to our neighbours which needs to be fixed due to noise issues.
  • The floor has carpet everywhere
  • 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.
