We supplied a fully functional 3 storey recording studio to a television broadcaster client, for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The studio needed to be sound proof, watertight and built to very specific sizes, the ground floor had to be suitable for storage and have an office area and production room. We were also given very specific information as to how the studios should look on the exterior due to its position on the bank of the River Clyde. The studio was built using 6 x 40ft containers, positioned in pairs and stacked 3 high. Our CAD team worked tirelessly to provide very detailed drawings and renders of the project which were submitted to Glasgow City Council for approval. Each studio had to have large windows installed with no mullion supports, the largest being 2.5m x 4.5m. The exterior of the containers had to be clad in timber and access to each floor came in the way of a purpose built staircase to the rear of the building, which had to meet with stringent building regulations.
