Large scale buildings for the film industry


Despite recent shutdowns in the film industry, it is truly back with a boom with many big productions scheduled to go ahead in the UK.

However, there is a widespread shortage of studio space available across the UK, with many units occupied by large streaming platforms.

Introducing ‘The Horizon’, a British-made product that offers a purpose-built solution for the Film and TV industry, from soundstages to bespoke film sets.

The Horizon is a large-scale, relocatable building solution that is relatively quick and cost-effective to install and dismantle. This eliminates the need for multiple studios and sites therefore reducing project costs and your overall carbon footprint.

What we can do


From full turnkey projects such as studio facilities or bespoke sound stages to extending an existing space with workshop, storage or office facilities, we can deliver any structure, shape, size and specification to suit the end users’ needs.

Our buildings can be delivered 14 metres up to eave and across a 60m span, with unlimited variations in length. This high volume of internal space provides plenty of room for storing large staging equipment and props, installing gantry walkways, staircases and even a mezzanine floor.

We can deliver fully-insulated buildings that offer high thermal, noise-reduction and fire resistance properties suitable for creating a film and television production environment. Available with steel insulated sandwich panels up to 120mm thick to the roof, walls and gable, this is anything but a temporary fix.

Designed to your exact needs


Continual investment in our design and manufacturing processes combined with maintaining the highest construction standards on site ensures your project is delivered on time and to budget. We can build on any surface, offering guidance for any required groundworks required. Our in-house construction process ensures faster turnaround times.

Complying fully with Building Regulations, our product is designed and constructed to site-specific requirements.

The beauty of our buildings is that they can adapt quickly to the dynamic needs of any film production with its modular and highly-customisable design.

Solutions


The Horizon Sound Stage 2

Our purpose-built soundstages create an all-round functional and viable solution for your business.

We can personalise your soundstage to include everything you need for your production, such as a fully furnished office or workshop space.

The Horizon Sound Stage 1
Film sets

We design and build contemporary, purpose-built studios with customisable finishes and layouts.

These can be easily partitioned into separate studio spaces, create production offices, green rooms, dressing rooms, toilets, and any other required facilities.

Workshops

Require workshops for set manufacture or costume production? Starting as small as 10m wide, we can build a workshop that blends in seamlessly with your facilities.

We take care of every detail from guttering and downpipes to access requirements such as doors and ramps.

The Horizon – Reusable, Recyclable, Relocatable


Permanent facilities can be an long and expensive to build, whilst lacking the flexibility to move with your film production needs. The Horizon on the other hand offers a long-term, flexible solution that is quick to install, cost-effective and highly-customisable. Furthermore, our structure is infinitely recyclable, reusable and relocatable, providing a fantastically sustainable solution that can adapt and grow with your business.

A key distinction of the Horizon is its intrinsic structural strength, capable of rigging unusually heavy loads.

  • Eave heights: 8m, 10m, 12m, 14m
  • Span widths: 20m, 30m, 40m, 60m
  • Capable of rigging unusually high loads
  • Complies fully with UK building regulations for wind and snow loading
