Maynooth University

In late 2019 Smart Studio were contracted by NUI Maynooth to design and build four studio isolation booths for the Music department, after the completion of a tender process.


Sound insulation was not the only priority for the university. A broadcast spec room acoustic was also needed for music technology students. Also required was inter-connectivity between the rooms, air conditioning, and a quality build.

The success of the project is bestjudged by the client. Head of the Music Department at Maynooth University offered this assessment:

“Maynooth University engaged Smart Studio to implement a series of isolation booths for our Music Technology department.

It was obvious from the start that Smart Studio had the expertise, in design and implementation, to meet our specific isolation booth requirements.

All our concerns and queries were met with patience, clear explanation and and enthusiasm.

Their enthusiasm for their workmanship was evident in the final finished product.”

We had four booths of varying sizes installed, each with excellent isolation, network connectivity, clean air flow, mains power and dimmer lighting.

The response the Department has received from student’s and staff has been very positive and presents the facilities, nestled in the South Campus of the College, in great light.

We are delighted with our facility and, if options were available in the future, would have no hesitation in working with Smart Solutions in the future.”
