20 Feb Latest News and comments
Well it’s only 5 days until my birthday on 25th February. I’ll be 62 years strong and still busier than a one-armed paper hanger.
– As you can see, despite all my good intentions to get a blog up weekly, I’ve been so busy that it has been extremely hard to schedule ‘blog time’. We spent the New Years week in Bali, returning back to work and haven’t stopped since! LOL. After finishing the SAE Institute in South Jakarta, our local associate is now beginning the construction work on the installation of the French Embassy Theater in Jakarta. I’ll post some photos soon.

Some thoughts for you guys that are planning a studio build; Get hold of the designer of your choice EARLY on. This can save you literally thousands of dollars in errors, limitations, re-design costs, bureaucracy hangups, and just plain mistakes. It takes some considerable time to design a space with considerations to the acoustical use of the space as well as the sound/vibration isolation required. Consultations with structural engineers, electricians, HVAC contractors, and local ordinance compliance all take time and much effort and thought to bring about a successful project completion. I can’t stress this enough because I see, every week, someone trying to rush a build and then ending up with something they wished they hadn’t done and thinking… well, next one, I’ll do this or that. Often, especially these days, ‘next’ never comes.
Like I always say, sometimes; Do it right – do it once.
Let me help you with that. Give us a call or send us an email. If you plan to call, please mind the time zone.
I think I’m getting the hang of entering a blog now, so you’ll be hearing from me again very soon. I wish you all the very best in your creative endeavors.
