The Counter Coulture Lab (CCL) located in the Omni Commons building in Oakland. It contains a two Biosafety Level 1 (BSL1) laboratory spaces. The larger Lab 1 space is part of a large open space in the Omni Commons ground floor. The smaller Lab 2 space is a room off the Lab 1 to which access can be limited by a door. CCL aspires to eventually convert this into a BSL2 laboratory. Biosafety polies can be found here. In addition to the laboratories, CCL contains a meeting space and an equipment storage space adjoining the Lab 1. Finally, CCL also contains two rooms are dedicated to Mycology.

This page is intended to allow CCL members to coherently develop the space they would like. Whenever possible schematics and labeled pictures will be used to create a natural association between the space, equipment and instruments available and their planned development. The hope is that visual presentation of the resources will allow more effective communication and development than inventory lists.

Lab 1 Space (BSL1)

The Lab 1 has three benches.

Proposed Additions

The primary alterations to the current space will involve electrical circuits, lighting, plumbing and climate control. This wiki section is intended to allow people with knowledge of planned changes to provide this information using the current layout as a basis.

Electrical

The schematic will show the different circuits and their ratings and outlets, and list of instruments on each circuit. Please add these things as a dedicated layer on the schematic template.

Lighting

The schematic will show lighting layouts, their expected illumination of work spaces and current requirements.

Plumbing

The schematic will show the plumbing and sink locations. Please add these things as a dedicated layer on the schematic template.

Climate Control and Cleaning

Currently there are no plans for additional climate control in the space. Maintaining a comfortable temperature in Lab 2 may require consideration of a cooling mechanism. At present, heating of the Lab 2 room can be limited by not placing any equipment which produces heat against the wall between Lab 1 and 2. Finally, the contamination levels in different parts of the laboratories has yet to be established.

The Lab 2 space....

Current Layout

A current layout of the lab is shown in the schematic below. Not all instruments and equipment is shown, and some features that are shown may be undesirable.

Schematic

This is a draft schematic of the lab layout. The features are to scale. You can download this .svg file and add additional layers and make alterations and upload these into the following sections. It would be preferable to not alter this schematic drastically.
