From the sounds of things these dudes are serious workers, so we cant piss them around. Lots of planning needs to be done before they arrive and the materials ready for when they get here. As I will not be around to help, I will outline what needs to be done before thy come.

Below is the work required by fire and building control to bring the building up to standard and possibly up the capacity:



Everything is self explanatory in that post.

Below is more work that we should get the army to do.

Toilets:
- Plans need to be drawn up as it is important to get the levels and layout of the plumbing correct. I think it would be wise to get an architect who knows what they are doing. As it stands the existing trunk line is prone to blocking. Although we have not had any problems since the introduction of bins and the toilet paper dispensers, it's not something we want to get wrong.
- Submit the plans to building control for approval.
- Cost and order materials required. If we get a friendly architect they may help.
- This project will require the biggest amount of time/planning/materials and labor. Personally I think it's the most important thing to get done if we want to increase the capacity.

Venting the cafe:
I think the best way to do vent the cafe is to install a massive extraction system above the kitchen that ducts to the street. But to be honest maybe it would be worth getting somebody in who really knows what they are talking about. Although I think this would make a substantial difference, maybe there is a better solution.
- Design system
- Order materials

Sound proofing cave:
Build in a false ceiling.
- Plan ceiling
- Order materials

Build new sound desk???
It could be nice to rebuild the sound desk so it is fixed to the floor. Lockable storage for records, mics, cables. Lockable access to change configuration, and the ability to turn off the mixer (as this stops the buzzing noise).

Perhaps we will want to shut the cafe for a few days while the work is being done? If the toilets are going to be out of action and a hole knocked in the wall above the kitchen, it might be nice to give them some space to work.

Meeting with Dave, Gaz, Shannon, Chris
15 May 07

The team is definitely coming over from 14th to 21st July.
They will come over regardless...

There is about 12 people in the team.
5 or 6 will be available to work at the forest (professionals) + maybe 2 to do less-highly-skilled work.
Others will be working elsewhere and these 5/6 will be doing other projects elsewhere too.

Don't know what the skillset will be (carpenters, electricians etc) but dave will find out soon.

Dave assures us that whatever work we can offer, high or low skilled, whatever, this team will be happy to do it.

The days they will be available to work:
Mon 16th July
Tue 17th July
Wed 18th July
Thurs 19th July (maybe)
Fri 20th July

So 4 definite days. Possibly 5.

We explained the current situation to dave. He understands and says whatever the forest needs to be done these guys will be happy to help.

So...we looked at the list of tasks tim identified to bring the theatre venue up to scratch. These are all good. Plus stage blocks, ventilation from the main room to outside and perhaps a new improved sound desk. If the situation is clearer by that stage then toilets could also be a possible project.

Dave will forward the list of tasks from the bb to the team in america.

Someone (probably called bill) will have to be a forest contact with this team at the time, drive a van around and get materials prior to arrival.

So...looking good...especially for setting up for the festival.

6 blocks.
Each block:
1M x 2M
30CM high.

The plan is these can either form a small stage in front of the alter thing or go at the back of the hall, forming a small 2 level raked thing for chairs.

I am no expert on the structural integrity of block, um, things and if the builders think these will bend in the middle or something we can resize them so they won't.

I understand the builders are arriving on the 14th? I will make time to come and talk with them before they start and make sure its all clear, say thanks and so on ...

REMINDER!

as SOON as the building work is finished (or nearly) someone needs to call Malcolm Kennedy and ask him to inspect and authorize our useage.

Do NOT forget.
