Decades of studio design experience.
Our design consultants have many years of audio electronics and acoustic design experience plus many more specifically in the design of audio and television recording facilities. From the early days of the amplifier, analogue tape recorder and console design through to the main activity today of acoustics in real studio environments, their wide scope of knowledge means that our clients have the benefit of an appreciation of all aspects of their project...not just the 'bricks & mortar'.
From first contact with our office, an experienced designer will visit your proposed site, discuss the options available and within a few days...submit a full specification, general layout and budget proposal. If your location is within mainland UK, this first visit can be free of charge and overseas calls are at minimal cost.
Once the acoustic calculations have been done and basic layouts have been agreed, the production drawings are prepared on one of our AutoCAD 2007 workstations. Output is plotted on A1 sheets covering various 'layers' of the works from basic floating floors, internal wall/ceiling structures to Mechanical and Electrical services. If Building Regulations are involved, a set will be submitted for approval and site work will commence. Meanwhile, the equipment layouts and audio/video wiring schemes are confirmed and 'dropped' onto the drawing to complete the final stages ready for preparation of accurate visuals on Artlantis Studio 4.
Workstation, racking and suggested equipment layouts are put together with several different 'finishing' schemes into rendered 'shots' of the rooms from various camera angles and a full 360° motion camera.
Using different lighting options, the room visuals start to take shape and, together with the constructional drawings, provide the client with a clear view of how the finished project is going to look and feel.
Initially, a run of up to 4 colour scheme options are supplied on CD or via email, together with samples of fabrics and wood species. Subsequent discussion will then reveal the favored combinations and a final set of chosen visuals are prepared for client approval.
