BSKYB called upon Elgood Flooring’s extensive experience for their new Harlequin 1 groundbreaking Headquarters.
We acted as an independent consultant and surveyed the sub floor for suitability. We were also asked to advise on installation and programme.
To retain control of the choice of flooring and to ensure that the studio floor met BSKYB rigorous high standard the Studio Flooring element was excluded from the Design and Build Package.
The Studio Flooring was and should be seen as an integral part of the final technical fit out. This approach is now being adopted as standard.
- Completion date: May 2011
- Areas: 7 studios, Greater London
- Programme: 8 weeks
- Product: The Elgood Universal Television Studio Floor System
The floor provides optimum camera pedestal performance.
The floor is perfect for Multi Camera use.
The floor is free of undulations, inclines and surface irregularities. These details are of no consequence on most floors, but totally unacceptable in a modern HD television studio.
Tough wearing surface designed to withstand the range of use expected of a modern HD studio facility.
The Elgood Studio Floor System has been proven over 30 years with more than 100 studio installations. With an average working life of more than 10 + years these studio floors provide long term economy.
We retain a small in-house team of full time employees specifically trained to install the Elgood Range of Studio floorings. All serve an apprenticeship of four years.
