Space Requirements

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.

Scoring

It is essential that a potential property fulfils all of the fundamental "Must" requirements in order to be considered.

Standard AchievedScore
"Must" is missing0
"Must"1
"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.
