The UK studio and acoustic design consultancy is currently working on 17 major projects across four different continents.

Established in 1997, White Mark has designed and supervised the construction of more than 170 audio production suites worldwide during the last decade alone.

Projects completed during 2010 include a new London headquarters for German national broadcaster ARD, a Dolby certified audio suite for Factory Studios and the installation of an in-house post-production facility at the London offices of advertising agency JWT. White Mark also continues to be involved in designing and installing recording, broadcast and multimedia facilities for the educational sector.

The company’s current workload includes new radio stations in Egypt, a film production and post-production complex in Moscow, multimedia facilities for an international advertising agency in New York, a music recording studio in Mexico and three different projects in London, all involving the design and installation of television post production facilities.

White Mark’s Managing Director David Bell says: “We are noticing a definite trend for larger projects that involve a number of different recording, editing and post production facilities in the same building. It is not uncommon for us to be designing and installing up to 20 rooms at a time for just one client. Most of this work is for film and television production and post-production customers but we are still tackling the occasional music studio, although most of these projects are currently overseas.

“It has been an exceptionally busy year for us, but we are well-positioned to cope with the demand and, despite reports to the contrary, we are seeing very little evidence of global economic meltdown.”
