The guy in the orange shirt in these pics is Fredrick, our contractor. He's the South African version of the the movie 300, but when he hangs up the phone he says "toodleoo!"

Lookin' good. Is the window opening on the control room side smaller than the live room side a common design? I don't recall seeing that before.

Dude, coming from someone with just a little bit of time in the Commercial and Industrial Electrical field I can say this... All that MC ran together like that is gonna create a lot of heat once loads start getting put on them... That could spell disaster if you have any audio or CAT wire running near it... But hopefully the electricians upsized the wire size of the MC so it'll keep the heat down on each piece.

very cool. I love that someone finally has a good thread about building a studio in a steel building. I may try it someday.

Thanks man! Yeah, lots of studios are built inside of warehouse type spaces, but I've never seen a build thread about one. Knowing GS, it probably exists deep down in the forums!

The MC is def upsized, and each outlet is grounded individually, painstakingly. All of the audio wiring is ran through the framing 1 - 2 ft away from electrical, so no worries there. The reason it looks the way it does in the pictures is because you have to run the cabling with slack in order to get it through all of the holes that have been drilled throughout the framing (for this purpose) without damaging the cabling. In the places where the cabling was crossed, insulation was used to separate them from touching. One would have to sacrifice a lot of outlets, audio panels, and therefore versatility in order to build a studio and never cross a cable.

I know I'm spotty about posting, and pretty behind at this point. Sorry about that! lol, here's another couple batches of photos. GS only let's me put 10 per post, or I'd be more apt to just do it all in one giant post, so it's probably a good thing!

Thanks so much! Lots of hard work on the people who have been actually building it. Many thanks to Wes, Tony, Thom and their crews. As well as our local contractors helping out!

wizkid, the electrical looks much better now, they may have ran full lengths before pulling them through the studs, which would be the reason for having them how they were. I think that's what you were describing; Looks amazing... As always another amazing Wes Lachot design coming to fruition.

A couple of questions

Looks great! I would have thought the in-wall sound insulation would be a higher density insulation, like mineral wool. The fluffy fiberglass is pretty lightweight stuff. Any special reason to use it?

Also, why is all the concealed wiring in armored cable? Is it required because it's a commercial facility even it it's concealed?

There's really no need to spend money on high-density fiberglass inside the walls, when the walls are dual-membrane high-STC walls to begin with. The only purpose of the fiberglass inside the wall is to tame the resonant frequency of the wall, and low density fiberglass does a good job of this.

We use the high-desity stuff outside the walls - inside the sound rooms - where it really matters.

Hey guys,

Here's the update. Studio is finished, and we are several clients in. Everything sounds great and I can't wait for people to hear the sound of our studio...it's more than inspiring. I'll finish up the pictures this evening, I hope you like what we did with the place! It's been fun, and more than a pleasure working with Wes, Tony, Ray, Tiffany, Bryan, Thom, and Daniel. You guys are a terrific team and have made the engineers job much, much easier. You've provided us with world class live rooms and a perfectly tuned control room.

The mixes are coming out accurate on all other systems, in comparison to what I hear in the control room, which is the most important part of a great room. Thanks to all. There is a "Credits" list on our website and you can find everyone involved there.

Truphonic Recording Studios of Charleston, SC

Our B room is still not outfitted with gear, so I will be posting final pictures of that room at a later date. Thanks to my fellow slutz for watching the thread, and putting up with my procrastination on posting updates. Truth is, I am a full time working engineer, which we all know requires 80+ hrs a week in a control room (luckily now I'm in this one! ). The fact that I am completely obsessed with consuming information about audio, prevents me from posting as much as I'd like. Anyhow, if you ever find yourself in the most beautiful city in the US, and Condé Nast Traveler's choice for #1 US destination in 2012, give us a call for a tour!

The mains arrived!!

As you can see, I didn't last long with the paint praying, so here's after the paint.

Take note of the live room cloud in this post, you can see it being constructed in the early stages.

Here comes the console/cradenza/glass install. This is where I became heavily involved with the build, so there is less pictures, but as you can see it gets put together quickly in the final stages...it literally goes from room with walls to recording studio in a matter of 4 days or so.
