STUDIO SPACE & FACILITIES

The Northern Studios complex has nearly 3,000 sqm of dedicated studio and production space sited within a large secure compound that allows for unit parking, support vehicles and deliveries by articulated HGVs.

We have three sound stage areas as well as a full production suite with offices, green-rooms, make-up and costume facilities and storage.

Stage 2: 20m by 50m max, 5m clear working height. Sound stage with floor area each c. 1,000 sqm. Accessed by sliding full height acoustic studio doors. Lined with acoustic curtains and a ceiling formed with acoustic fabric creating an acoustic envelope.

Stage 3: 20m by 50m max, 5m clear working height. Sound stage with floor area each c. 1,000 sqm. Accessed by sliding full height acoustic studio doors.

Acoustic performance

Stages 2 & 3 have acoustic curtains with tracks to enable each to be split into two working areas.

The divisions between the 3 stages are acoustically secure and each stage has a Clarke’s acoustic sliding door rated at 53Db.

At 5m height all 3 stages have horizontal acoustic curtain to create an acoustic envelope

The whole exterior roof area is netted to prevent noise from birds.
