Infrastructure Officers Report

  • we have a tool room
    • it's problematic however, as it has limited power (just two GPOs)
    • from a dust-supression point of view, it's great, from a noise-reduction point of view, it needs major insulation work (and the ceiling needs some reinforcement)

  • Tool room has been cleared out and handed over

  • A/V has signed an agreement to take on the Anthony's ex-office
  • Re: Paul's car, he has been asked to remove his car months ago — propose we given him until the 14th of May to photograph and remove the vehicle, otherwise we will consider it dumped
