While we are not currently or directly looking for a new location, it is always good to keep an eye on locations options and opportunities.

This page should be treated only as background research and not as any plan or intent, just intended to be a crowd sourced brainstorm thing

The Engage space is around 400 sq foot / 37m2.

An ideal budget would be around ~£4000 p/a, as that is what we've typically been able to sustain.

Please add any ideas here.




Formerly know as Doctor Drakes

Doctor Drakes

Shiprow near PureGym.

It has a flat felt roof, closure in ~2005, more details to be added.

Jim Ewen, Director of The Anatomy Rooms was the managing director of Dr Drakes, according to https://www.abdn.ac.uk/news/8264/

Deemouth Business Centre is a small business park just across the river in Torry. There are a selection of units around a courtyard.

They have a lot of units, or various sizes, so it might be good in that we could stay in the same place and adjust our capacity as required.

Added: 24 Aug 19, by EW

The top floor of an office building, used with agreement from a local disability charity and possibly shared with others in-terms of storage. The size available is suggested to on the scale of an average community hall going of descriptions given. If occupying for a longer term, the general idea is that we could establish areas in this space ie. a clean area, a working area, a space for storage etc. We would have to build walls for divisions between space areas. If occupying or a shorter term, we'd use the space to store whilst looking at other locations and possibly use the opportunity to organise our equipment/occupying with good light and space the location has to offer.

The charity have the southern half of the building and they are not using all this space. The office they do use could have easily seat 30 people and they have two desks. The room they are offering is on top of this.

They have an Internet connection but trunk cable would need to be rerouted. We can have door access to the building with a code, and maybe 1 key for the actual space.
