[open-science] Advice for starting an open community lab/biomakespace?

Dear All

I have an exciting opportunity to start a community biology lab here in 
Cambridge (UK), which would be fantastic for several local projects we've 
got going around open technologies (which I should definitely share in more 
detail soon!).

Has anyone set up a biohackspace/makespace/community lab and could you send 
me any examples of governance documents, figures for number of members, 
information on how you keep such a space sustainable financially and 
anything else you have that could feed into our deliberations on how to run 
the space?

I've found one site from GenSpace which is really useful 
http://openlab-blueprint.org/ but it'd be good to see if their solutions 
have worked elsewhere.

Things are moving quite quickly so apologies for the rushed email! I'd be 
delighted to talk to anyone who can offer advice so while publicly posted 
documents would be best and most helpful for others, if it's more 
convenient to chat then just get in touch!
