New studio build complete!

After many months of planning, design and construction the new studio is complete! Only a little bit more wiring for 5.1 to go. I’m super excited about starting work in this great room! The acoustic treatment was designed by Chris Walls at Level Acoustic, who have designed spaces for Mark Ronson, Abbey Road Studios and Coldplay. All of the construction work went very smoothly thanks to the talents of Mark Barlow at ISIMA ltd.  Now to start making some NOISE! 🙂
