Specialist studio building company Form & Funktion have signed a contract to build and install new recording facilities at the Royal National Theatre on London's South Bank. The contract for the new facilities' design was awarded to UK acoustic consultancy Munro Associates. The Munro team will work closely with Form & Funktion to transform space in the theater's basement into two production rooms and a live area, with audio and video tie lines to the three National Stages. There will also be Foley facilities to create sound effects.

The sound studios will be used to record music and sound effects for various productions and audio-based marketing and promotional material for the theater itself. The studios will also handle the video and audio recordings of productions that are made for the theatre's archives.

Work on the project began last month and is expected to be completed in three months.

Form & Funktion's managing director Clive Glover said, "The Royal National Theatre has waited 30 years for these facilities; they were designed into the original plans but when the theater was built back in 1976, there wasn't enough money to install them. However, thanks to National Lottery funding and a donation from the Rose Foundation, the theater now has the budget to complete the project. We are delighted to have been chosen to handle the building work and acoustic installation."

Equipment lists for the two production rooms are still being finalized, but are likely to include a Yamaha 02R console, Genelec monitoring and Pro Tools.
