THE BOTTLE YARD ADDS SECOND FACILITY
“Owned and run by Bristol City Council, The Bottle Yard Studios opened in 2010 and has accommodated more than 70 film and TV productions to date. TBY2 is The Bottle Yard’s state-of-the-art second facility, offering an additional three premium quality, fully sound proofed stages. Less than half a mile from the main Bottle Yard site, TBY2’s acoustically treated stages offer 20,000 sq ft, 16,500 sq ft and 7,000 sq ft of clear span build space with maximum heights of 34ft.
Backed by West of England Combined Authority investment, the £13.5m TBY2 redevelopment has been delivered by global construction specialists ISG. It is intended to maintain and grow film and TV production in Bristol and the West of England. TBY2’s opening increases the total number of stages at The Bottle Yard Studios from eight to 11.
TBY2’s three new sound stages are accompanied by more than 40,000 sq ft of ancillary space comprising production offices, prop stores, costume/makeup and break out areas, amounting to approx 82,000 sq ft of converted floor space in total. The site is supported with up to 10GB secure connectivity and 24/7 site security.
Bristol City Council has invested in renewal and repair works at the main Bottle Yard site, to ensure its existing buildings are fit for purpose for the Studios’ 10-year business plan. 135 jobs were created during TBY2’s redevelopment works and more than 860 jobs are expected to be created over the next 10 years through an accompanying Workforce Development Programme focused on high-end TV skills and targeting development of new talent in South Bristol.” – thebottleyard.com
