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 1: 20m by 20m max, 5m clear working height. A large green screen studio, square plan with a c.300sqm area accessed by a sliding full height acoustic studio door. Acoustic fabric forms the ceiling of the working area
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. Lined with acoustic curtains and a ceiling formed with acoustic fabric creating an acoustic envelope. The full height working area is reduced by raised high level storage units.
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.
