Some days are GOOD

Have a project coming up at work, new site, initial planning. I demanded a minimum of 240 square feet for the main LAN room -- and that if there is never to be any expansion in the future. "You can't have it!" "Fine, you won't get telephone service." Backed up my request with photographs of the existing LAN room, with a floor plan showing minimum clearances. I will be getting the floorspace I need.

Since it was an initial space plan, proposed rooms got moved around. They had the door to my LAN room inside one of the training rooms. (I get to disturb the class as I keep going in and out on a case of trouble? I don't think so!) They had the copier/printer room on the far end of the building. huh? Slide the training room a little, move copier/printer room to where LAN room was, push LAN room to the outside wall with access thru the copier/printer room. I suppose that is acceptable.

Acceptable? HA!!! The outside wall is all windows -- and it is Northern Exposure. I'll have office space people would kill for.

Way to go Mike.

Unfortunately, on the latest plan, it's an interior room of 227 sq. ft, no matter that they claim 240.
