Stage engineering without the drama
Whether you’re running a theatre, conference centre, arts venue or school performance area– your audience expects to be wowed. You need to put on a great show, confident in the knowledge that your stage technology and engineering solutions work safely, efficiently and comply with regulations.
That’s why theatre managers and consultants, technicians, architects and builders, Heads of Drama and others come to iStudio Projects.
With 20 years of success in stage engineering, we know exactly what it takes to bring imagination to life. Here’s how we do it:
Our trademark. We’re known for delivering the near-impossible, on time and on budget – and we’ve got some amazing customer stories to show for it. Our customers know they can call us any time and get a fast, friendly response. And if you share our passion for specialist stage technology and engineered solutions, you’ll enjoy bouncing ideas around with us as your creative partners. ISO 9001 certification ensures we constantly improve on our own high standards.
We love it when customers bring us stretching challenges. For example, we’re as happy renovating existing systems as we are creating and installing from scratch.
We have the expertise to assess, plan and do what’s best for you and your budget.
Innovation is part of the service. Our inventive engineers, and our links with Cambridge University’s engineering department, keep us and our customers in the forefront of industry developments.
A strategic viewpoint
We’re not just about technical wizardry. We seek to understand your organisation’s commercial and strategic goals, and create cost-effective, bespoke solutions to help you meet them.
A close-knit group with a broad outlook
iStudio Projects is a family business. We choose team members who share our outlook: engineers and others who are inspired by the people and challenges of our industry, and understand just what it takes to succeed. They’re not so easy to find, so we’ve developed our own apprenticeship scheme – training young people in our way of doing business, while strengthening our ties with the local community.
From industry secret to international success
For 20 years iStudio Projects operated in association with larger organisations, and was something of a trade secret in the stage engineering world. We began operating independently in 2012, making a major investment in people, machinery and premises. Since then, business has soared – but we’ve expanded carefully to protect our most precious asset: our ability to deliver outstanding customer service.
Based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, iStudio Projects is well placed to serve customers in the UK and around the world. All our products are manufactured in the UK, maximizing our control of quality and reliability. We supply equipment in two ways: either sourcing it from trusted suppliers, or manufacturing bespoke items in our own facility, at competitive rates.
Our in-house manufacturing capability means we can serve customers from other industries too. Supplying customized products such as wire rope pulleys – reliably, quickly and economically – is a fast-growing part of our business.
