Despite the economic doom and gloom, UK studio and acoustic design consultancy White Mark Ltd is reporting an exceptionally busy end to 2010, with 17 major projects under construction on four different continents.
Among these are new radio studios in Egypt, a film production and post production complex in Moscow, multimedia facilities for an international advertising agency in New York, a music recording studio in Mexico and three different projects in London, all involving the design and installation of television post production facilities.
White Markâ€™s Managing Director David Bell says: â€œWe are noticing a definite trend for larger projects that involve a number of different recording, editing and post production facilities in the same building. It is not uncommon for us to be designing and installing up to 20 rooms at a time for just one client. Most of this work is for film and television production and post production customers but we are still tackling the occasional music studio, although most of these projects are currently overseas.â€? more
