“Having been involved the media industry for 40 years, I know what a pain in the neck building recording studios is. First you need a acoustician to design it, someone to price the materials, and a builder to complete the job, who may have no acoustic experience.

 With Smart Studio, the process is simple.

 We combine acoustic design expertise, construction expertise, and innovative off site construction. Smart Studio takes care of every detail, from the first drawings to the last plug socket. “

Jim Dunne Msc., MIOA

Managing Director & Chief Designer, Smart Studio

“They delivered on everything on time to a very high standard at good price. The guys at Smart Studio were extremely easy to work with and always took a can do approach in design and on-site. Great people who went the extra mile and delivered a project everyone is absolutely blown away with”

Leo Casserly

Managing Director, FLIX Facilities Manchester

The modular design/build of Smart Studio fitted perfectly with the project.  Working with Jim and the team allowed us to plan and budget accurately and focus our attention on the other challenges involved in setting up a professional recording studio. The result was as promised. I would highly recommend Smart Studio.”

David Curley

Owner , The Clinic Recording Studio

The Smart Studio team really excelled themselves on this project. Right from the get-go we established a great working relationship and their speed of response was a key factor in the overall project success.

The build time on site was absolutely amazing compared to traditional building methods for the same style and size of recording studios.

Phillip Crewe

Project Manager, Project Plan Partners

“Having been involved with many traditional studio builds I was quite taken back at the how straight forward this one was. Everything from start to finish was really simplified by Smart’s planning and unique approach.  The build team were excellent, working to a high standard leaving us with a great sounding and looking control room and voice booth well ahead of our schedule”

Rapid construction

Smart Studio™ has been developed to reduce on-site build time of studios dramatically. This ensures that you have your new facility up and running in the shortest possible time. The reduction of on-site build time means you can bring new facility on line much more quickly thus generating income to pay for the whole exercise. It makes sense!

Integration of services

With our multi-disciplinary approach, Smart Studio™ ensures that all essential aspects of your new facility build are addressed including studio service and system integration. Integrated cable management and ultra-low noise air-con ducting is incorporated within the body of each Smart Studio™ module. This ensures that these vital services are incorporated into your studio from the start and are not an afterthought.


We have designed the modules of Smart Studio™ to be responsive to various methods and techniques of dressing the room. Stretched fabric panels complete with wall and ceiling mounted diffusers are generally the approach we take. This allows us the ability to design and tune the room both acoustically and aesthetically. Lighting also plays an important part the final look and impression of a space. This is why the Smart Studio™ system supports the location of feature and operational lighting to suit your application and requirements.

Less Disruption On-Site

Conventional studio build techniques are notorious for the disruption they cause to an existing facility. The dust, the dirt, the noise and the time it takes to complete project. Smart Studio™, with its pre-built modular components, avoids many of the unwanted side effects of the conventional studio build which can cause havoc in a busy work environment. Therefore a less disruptive studio build is the outcome.

Experienced Studio Design Team

Smart Studio™ reduces the number of external third parties involved in the studio design process as there is no need to involve other construction professionals such as architects, project managers, M&E consultants, interior designers etc. By reducing the number of people involved in the studio design process, a closer relationship between Smart Studio™ and our customers is achieved which results in our client’s needs being better matched and delivered upon.

Design Customisation

Smart Studio™ provides full customisation options while retaining the key advantage of predictable costing and installation time. Acoustic specification and layout are agreed upon. Then it’s just a matter of finalising the interior finish details and off we go. No big deal. We’ll leave all the drama to your people in sound and pictures department.
