"Studio Builds are a unique figure in the studio construction landscape. Barny can draw on years of experience working in numerous commercial studios as a highly successful engineer, mixer & producer. This gives him an insight into what actually matters in the design, and equally importantly the areas where costs can be saved.”

"Studio Builds were great in the planning stage, maximising the size and quality of the building and managing to work within my budget. During the build they helped at each stage to keep me on track, providing me with great plans to build from and solving issues as they arose. Barny designed the furniture as well to create a truly bespoke space that fitted my brief perfectly. The room sounds and looks great.”

“Studio Builds did an amazing job soundproofing and acoustically treating my new studio space. They really got what I was trying to do and figured out a way of making it happen, all within time and budget. Since I’ve moved in I’ve given their number to half a dozen people wanting to know where I got my amazing panelling from, its the talk or the studio complex!”

“Studio Builds worked really hard to help us make the most of our small and intimate space. The acoustic panelling is beautifully crafted and the end result not only looks great but sounds fantastic too. Barny built a custom monitor bridge and desk legs too that are sturdy, innovative and functional in a variety of ways. It was a pleasure to have such a friendly and funny man working on the build with us. We’d use him again in a flash.”

“Studio Builds made the process of building and designing my wonderful cedar clad garden mix room a straightforward and affordable process. They also designed and installed the acoustic treatments and built me a brilliant console to work from. I couldn’t be happier with the results.”

“Barny at StudioBuilds constructed a long-time dream from start to finish. From sketches and planning permission, to hidden whisky cabinets and bookshelf doors - he managed to interpret my crazy demands, and somehow keep things on budget. The talk of the studio is always the birch ply finishings, doors and door frames tying into window frames and radiator covers.There is also a huge, two-tier producer island - over 4 metres long and housing all the outboard. The control room is perfectly balanced with focused bass, and the live room has live and dampened options, simply by moving the instruments around. Built from a producer's mindset, the studio is as practical as it is magical."

“Studio Builds drew up a detailed soundproofing design for my new studio, comprising of new floating floor and walls. They then built and installed the acoustic treatments as well as designing and building me a custom keyboard workstation. The studio both looks and sounds fantastic.”

“Studio Builds helped me in planning the best solution for soundproofing my music therapy room at Kite Studios in West London. He suggested that we do the sound proofing work in stages as we weren’t quite sure how much noice reduction was needed. The solution was four large panels with cover material of my choice, and they made the room both functional and stylish.
Barny was very supportive and creative when helping me to make decisions for sound proofing my Music Therapy treatment room at Kite Studios in West London. The end result is both functional and stylish and the whole process was made easy for me.”

Studio Builds were fantastic to work with. They deigned and carried out all the soundproofing works and acoustic treatments, and the studio was ready to move in and work from in a matter of weeks.
