Unit Finishing Suite
London audio and video postproduction company Unit has nearly doubled its capacity with a new facility in the heart of Soho.

Having outgrown its previous studio, Unit called on White Mark to design and build a new facility. ‘We wanted to upgrade our infrastructure to make it  more flexible and resilient, and add services like Flame and Smoke,’ says Unit CEO Adam Luckwell.

The company now has 12 high-end Final Cut Pro edit suites, three Pro Tools audio suites and three Flame/Smoke finishing suites. It also has a 28-seat VFX studio offering, Nuke, Maya, After Effects and Cinema 4D, as well as reversioning on Final Cut Pro.

Established five years ago, Unit handles commercials, virals, corporates and finishing for broadcast. Its main clients are advertising agencies, for which it offers an end-to-end service.

Luckwell says that White Mark was chosen for the project on the strength of its reputation for building and designing high-end facilities for pro audio, film and broadcast. ‘When it comes to studio design, White Mark is the leading name in the industry,’ he explains. ‘The company was suggested by several other contractors that we were looking at for other disciplines involved in the build (wiring, construction etc). We also wanted a company that could project manage the build and White Mark was more than able to fulfil that brief.’

‘More and more we are commissioned to provide an integrated design and project supervision role on large, multi-discipline media projects and not just acoustic consultancy for studios,’ says White Mark MD, David Bell. ‘This development for Unit required the detailed architectural and acoustic design of technical spaces for both sound and visual postproduction, together with their careful integration into a highly developed interior design scheme and optimised use of the daylight available throughout the building. The result is an airy and technically excellent series of facilities that work well together as projects pass through the facility and offer comfortable and easy workspaces within which to work for long periods of time, when this is necessary.’

Since its formation in 1997, White Mark has constructed more than 170 audio production suites worldwide and has an enviable client list that encompasses more than 40 companies including Grand Central, Hackenbacker, Envy, Scramble, Lipsync, Molinare, Ascent Media, Wave and Boom.unit post

Unit’s new facility is now open for business and Luckwell says he is delighted with the results White Mark has achieved.
