SSR Manchester - SSR helps build Bury studio
SSR helps build Bury studio
Members of the SSR technical team were recently consulted over the planning and building of a brand new recording studio in Bury.

The ambitious project, which started in September, has turned a disused building at the back of The Met, Bury, into a high spec recording studio for use by the local community and professional musicians. The building will also feature a production suite for post production and learning.

SSR was contacted by the organisers and asked to play a consultancy role in the selection and installation of various forms of equipment. SSR staff members Tom Aston, Nick Barnard and Andy Low tended to the project on a regular basis to ensure the facilities met professional standards.

Our technical team were extremely happy to help with the project as SSR has always been committed to bolstering the creative talent here in the North West.

SSR Short Course & Administration Manager Andy Low:
“SSR is delighted to have been asked to assist and advise in the project and we look forward to seeing the studio flourish.”

Director of The Met David Agnew
“The recording studio builds on the role culture and the arts plays in Bury, creating more opportunities for the community. The Met will continue to develop and ensure a national identity and local pride for our borough.”

The studio was officially opened on 14th May 2011. Many guests including local authority, Craig Potter (Elbow) and our technical team were there to celebrate the good work that everyone has put into the project.
