Between these two walls, yes. Besides the fact that the inner wall is floated on Sylomer rubber strip.

Thanks, Wim, best wishes for your project, too! I've just seen it, the space looks fantastic, and the project itself (joint efforts of various individuals) is a good one - it's easier when you do things together.

All the best,

Branko

Today's news:

I was able, for the first time to enter the new projection booth and to take a look through the projection window:

The stairs and the Viroc floor in the projection booth - speaking about the Viroc, I begin to like this material more and more.

Today, we poured and leveled the slabs in two rooms.
The concrete company crew showed up at 8, and by the time I arrived, they already poured one slab and were expecting the last mixer truck to arrive to finish the job in the second room:

The pump and the mixer:

Note the rockwool and PVC sheet serving as framework:


New rooms in Portugal-_mg_9780.jpg The slab is not connected to the wall. To be more precise, there is a 5cm gap between the wall and the slab.

They call this machine a "Helicopter". The slab is being leveled a few hours after pouring:

Is that PU foam around the beams? Is that just for filling the gaps or do the beams need decoupling as well?
Old 21st October 2010

Yes, it is a PU foam, to keep things in place.

Some more pictures, the phase 1 is finished.
On Friday, we'll destroy some walls to prepare things for Reception and Clients Area construction, and some room re-organization on the first floor.
We have to finish all the "dirty" work before we bring in the acoustic materials, to avoid dust entering the new acoustic construction.

Today we knocked down some walls in the future clients' area. We won't proceed with these works immediately, as we'll use this for storage during the construction of studios' acoustical treatment. Next week, we're expecting two biiiiig trucks which will unload 450 gypsum boards, a few hundred chipboards, twenty-something rolls of cotton-felt waste material, deadsheet and so on..., not to mention wood beams, prepared timber...

Okay, there was a small period of no activity, which is now behind us and which was used to fill the place with construction materials for the next stage. Here's a part of the stuff that arrived so far. Gypsum boards (Pladur, as we call them in Portugal) is stored in adjacent warehouse, which was kindly let to us by the owners, without charge.
Anyway, once we begin the next wave of construction, we'll use up all these boars in a week or two.
We begin Monday, with floors base.

Today we laid the floor base on top of the concrete slab.
You can see layers of bitumen/rubber sheet and chipboard, placed on top of the concrete slab, glued and nailed to it.
This will take two days per room.

i have questions, why do you use bitume/rubber over concrete slab?
Old 12th November 2010

Inner studio walls are built on wooden frames. They carry layers of Gypsum boards and bitumen / rubber deadsheet

New rooms in Portugal-_mg_9898.jpgNew rooms in Portugal-_mg_9900.jpg

These walls are quite heavy - 1 metre of wall weighs about 125 Kg. This part was 6.5m long, thus weighing 125 x 6.5 = 812.5 Kg

We've lifted the first wall today. It looked like a very difficult operation until we brought in a chain head, which made things easier.

Some delicate position trimming, using high precision tools:

I expect to have all walls in this room built and positioned during the next week.

The deadsheet makes a better connection between concrete slab and chipboard, correcting little imperfections in both materials.

Some more walls built:

This is the slowest part of the construction, because of lots of corners. The opposite side will be a lot easier, just plain walls.

Da mesmo para perceber a dimensao nessas ultimas fotos com os trabalhadores la. Eh uma optima sensacao ver tudo a tornar-se real a pouco e pouco, neste momento o estudio onde trabalho esta a mudar-se para um "estate" novo enorme (nao tao grande quanto esse) e eh realmente uma sensacao espectacular.
Esse edificio vai entao servir apenas para pos-producao, dubbing e mixing para TV e Cinema apenas?
Se um dia for a Lisboa adorava prestar uma visita quando tivesse pronto hehe

Peco desculpa pela falta de acentos e escrita ah pitalhada, nao consigo fazer acentos em teclados uk -_-


Sorry for the big portuguese post, Congratulations and Good Luck! thumbsupthumbsup

We finished this week early, because of NATO summit or conference or whatever it is, that is going to happen during this weekend in Lisbon. Those guys closed the whole city, even some bridges will be closed during some hours while their royalties are being transported to the conference hall, which is close to our studio construction site.
So, to recap, we have two side walls and a piece of front wall built and lifted. The frame for the second half of the front wall is almost ready, and the smaller pieces of the left side wall (the ones that go around pillars) are ready to be lifted into position. I expect to have the walls completed by Tuesday next week. By the end of the next week, another experienced worker will join the team, to begin with traps' frames construction.

Not many pictures today:

And I thought I might show our selection of nails:

This week's results:

all walls finished, in place and nailed to floor and to each other.
almost half of inner ceiling beams in place, we'll probably finish it tomorrow.

pics:

before placing last beams, we'll lift up all the gypsum boards for the inner ceiling. Could be very tricky once all beams are in position.

Is there gypsum on the outside of the framing against the exterior block walls? Is this an 'inside out' type room or are you planning a 3 leaf wall?

Also, what are the ceiling joist? They look like 2"x6" beams. I believe that is 150mm boards. What is the span across the room. Also, how come there is a central "Spine" for half the room and not the other half. i.e. Where the joist terminate in the center of the ceiling.

I'm not picking on you. I'm just curious of all these questions. The place looks great and very spacious! Very nice!

Ok, I figured out the "spine" question on my own while looking at the 2nd photo of your last post. Are you placing gypsum on both sets of ceiling joist? Is this because of a vented (unsealed) outer shell of the building/roof?

Ok, I'm now realizing what is going on here. The chipboard looked like gypsum with the 'white' side facing out. Sorry for the dumb questions. Please do carry on... Great build!
