Old TGH building gets new purpose

Tuolumne County’s Economic Development Authority will lease part of the former Tuolumne General Hospital building to start what organizers are calling a “knowledge lab.”

The local economic development agency has leased part of the building’s top floor for use by local high-tech professionals.

 

Modeled after a new phenomenon known as a “hacker lab,” the facility would offer equipment, office space, computers and other tools for developers, entrepreneurs and other tech-based people. TCEDA Executive Director Larry Cope said the lab will be available on a membership basis, with people paying to access the facility.

The lab would give local businesspeople access to equipment like 3D printers and development software. But Cope said it is also meant to be a kind of communal space where like-minded go-getters share and build on each others’ ideas.

“What we’re going to be doing is bringing the tech people together in Tuolumne County,” Cope said.
