Oratory Music – Studio shut for block and beam floor installation

For a music recording studio in shutdown can be deeply detrimental, unfortunately it was something that was absolutely necessary to install a new block and beam floor to keep the building safe and in good condition. Due to the age of our Oratory Music recording studio, the foundations of the building had began to crumble, added to this it was time to add an extra room to the building so that we could expand and record more music from various artists. The block and beam floor technique that we decided to employee was not only the speediest way to get our music studio back open, but also worked out as one of the cheapest methods that we could use.

Getting our block and beam floor in had to be done quickly

Concrete floor beams make excellent structural supports, fortunately we knew someone locally who manufactured these concrete beams and was able to get us a good deal on them in the minimal time possible. Once we had our beam and block flooring in place it really was just a case of putting the new structure on top and repairing the old foundations. We do apologise to any avid readers of this blog as well as any musicians that we had scheduled to work with, unfortunately this maintenance work had to be done as it was essential.

If anyone has any new questions about our recording studio, or some of the work that we had done with our block and beam floor, we would be happy to have a chat. Please use our contact page to get in touch and Brian or myself will be happy to speak with you. We of course made every attempt to keep our downtime to a minimum, as I’m sure that you’ll appreciate flooring is something that can often take weeks fortunately we had help at hand to keep the wasted time down as low as possible.
