‘Full stream ahead as the UK's booming film industry goes into overdrive’

Our project Shinfield Studios has been cited by Journalist Mark Souster as example of how the UK’s film industry is ‘booming’ as part of an article for UAE title ‘The National’.

Shinfield Studios is a new state-of-the-art media hub at the Thames Valley Science Park [TSVP], currently onsite in Berkshire. Once complete, the £250 million film and TV studios will provide approximately 85,000 square metres of sound stages, workshops, offices and ancillary spaces.

Souster reports that Shinfield studios is ‘the largest bespoke complex currently being built in the United Kingdom’ and ‘is now part of the second largest entertainment sector in the world behind north America’. He adds that in ‘2019 it eclipsed the UK car industry in size and helped to keep Britain out of recession.’

Director Jason Lebidineuse, who heads up our film and TV studio work, is also quoted throughout. 

"A film studio is a great draw and also brings employment to the local economy. Shinfield is expected to generate 3,000 local jobs. The biggest thing is working out how fast you can get them up and running. Time is money. We are challenging the modern methods of construction so that we could create a long-term future for the film industry.”
