Community Links Recording Studio

OR Consulting acted as low carbon building services consultants and acoustic engineers on the redevelopment of the Community Links Morgue building to create a unique community recording studio.

The building is Grade II Listed and is located within a busy urban and residential environment. The acoustic design is a key driver for the architectural and environmental design of the recording studios and the project has been designed to provide an adaptable and
flexible facilities for the Client to grow into.

The project design:

  • Thermally and acoustically super insulates the historic structure.
  • Utilises low carbon heat pump technology to heat and cool the space.
  • Maintains ultra-low, internal ambient noise levels, to avoid disruption to recordings.
  • Optimises the performance of the studio room acoustics, to avoid┬ásound transmission to adjacent
    areas.
  • Prevents vibration or noise transmission to or from adjacent areas.
  • Prevents noise nuisance to neighbours.
