As Geek.Zone looks toward acquiring physical space across its districts, we need a standard method by which we can judge the suitability of each property. The following general requirements should be suitable regardless of geography.
|Description||Must: 1 Point||Should: 2 Points||Could: 3 Points|
|Location||be located within 400m of dominant bus operator bus stop||be located within the 1km of base pub||be located within 400m of a major bus or train station|
|Facilities||have toilet facilities||have a kitchen||have shower facilities|
|Area||have at least 30 square metres in floor space||have at least 100 square metres in floor space||have at least 200 square metres in floor space|
|Availability||Be available to Rent||Have been available to rent for more than three months||Have been available to rent for more than six months|
|Security||Be secure||Have more brick than glass frontage||have a walled, not glass, frontage|
|Building Standards||Meet building regulations||Have a Building Energy Rating of C or higher||Display no third party branding|
|Infrastructure||be connected to mains electricity and water supply||be connected to the gas main||Be in a high-speed broadband area|
|Accessibility||be entirely accessible to all, including wheelchair users||be all on one floor||None|
|Entry||permit 24/7 access via member swipe card||None||None|
It is essential that a potential property fulfils all of the fundamental "Must" requirements in order to be considered.
|"Must" is missing||0|
|"Must" AND "Should"||2|
|"Must" AND "Should" AND "Could"||3|
For example, if the property is only near to a bus stop, it would score 1 for location. If it is near the bus station, however, it would receive 3 for location. Should the property be more than 400m away from a bus stop, however, it would score a total of 0, regardless of anything else.
