Dedicated to superior studio design.

We pride ourselves on designing, specifying and constructing the best media facilities in the world - but what makes our facilities so good? Well, they don't just look good - they also consistently out-perform other facilities in terms of acoustics and isolation. We design spaces that not only have design flare and work acoustically but also that induce a perfect atmosphere for artists, performers, engineers, producers and teachers alike to do what they do best; be inspired and get creative. 


We undertake projects in every area of the media industry and there is no project too big or too small for us to handle. 

Whether you are looking for acoustic treatment solutions for your home studio, a small professional studio in your garage or a large venue/TV studio/music recording studio facility we have all the right expertise, trade skills and facilities to make your dream project a reality. We keep everything in house and are the only company in this business that is able to offer all trades under one roof - a true one stop shop for all your needs as we have our own time served and fully qualified joiners, electricians, mechanical engineers, plasterers, plumbers and AV wiremen. 


We take all the hassle out of procuring several different contractors to do one job and are more than capable of managing your project from start to finish. Communication is key in any walk of life and so we make sure all of our clients are kept up to date with developments and progress and always go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure projects run smoothly and are completed on time.


So, whether you're a private client, commercial/educational facility or just want to have a chat with someone in the know about the technical side of the audio/visual world then please pick up the phone and give us a call or drop us an e-mail - we look forward to hearing from you!
