1290m2 of vacant garages on the Ledbury Estate on the Old Kent Road in South London is to be transformed into recording studios, workshops, kitchens and an event space for the use of the local community. The project aims to provide opportunities for cultural programmes, training and employment, and to further strengthen the network of manufacturers that has traditionally operated in the Old Kent Road area.
ALN Acoustic Design has been involved in the development of the proposals, providing advice on how noisy activities such as metal work and music production can be accommodated without adversely impacting on the residents of the tower blocks which lie immediately adjacent to the site. Following this work, we have recently completed a noise impact assessment to support the planning application for the development.
We’re very proud to be contributing to a project that promises to provide such a valuable resource to the local community in the near future.
