What do we want the lab itself to look like? What should its capabilities be in terms of supporting different types of experiments in terms of equipment, space, etc? What should we be spending money on? What proportion of the space should be devoted to lab and how much to other functions like talks and classes? What looked like a large space when it was empty is now pretty crowded looking so I'm trying to gather opinions on how to make the space as functional as possible.

Electrical work was completed by Nion electric. We added a 220V receptacle for the -80C and 4x4 120V receptacles.
Right now the wiring in the lab is standard office outlets. We probably will need more power and have outlets more convenient to lab benches to avoid the use of lots of power strips. We also cannot use the -80C freezer until we install a 220V line. I propose to move forward with adding more power and putting in extra outlets and the 220V line ASAP. If everyone is cool with this and with Danny and I arranging the benches (we need to know where thy will be in order to locate the new outlets) then let us know. If you have any specific ideas on bench locations within the space or ideas to maximize benchspace I'd love to hear them.
