We continue with the third part of our dubbing studio build-blog in Berlin. Today we will give an overview of four essential organizational elements. These include:
- -Financing our own construction project
- -Fire protection considerations
- -Composition of the construction team from the architect, acoustician up to the parquet publisher
- -Technical equipment of the studios
In this part we will put our focus on financing and fire protection issues because there are already some things to consider here. Every larger project needs to be thought through because you can quickly miscalculate and end up spending more money than you actually wanted. Saving money at the wrong side - e.g. with materials or the construction team - can end up in experiencing unpleasant surprises. But all this step by step ...
On the other hand you have time to think about the matter carefully. Here you can still leave the supposedly sinking ship. But we are "daredevils" and it's boring to live life without any risk. We have also spent too much time planning all the construction stuff. So let's go!
The topic of fire protection should also not be underestimated because clear rules apply for proper implementation. Every larger commercial property requires a so-called fire protection plan, which must be adapted to small commercial units. Here one must consider various peculiarities. For example, doors may not be opened in escape routes. This sounds trivial but has led us to comprehensive concept changes. So we were not allowed to use our planned lock doors any more because the corridor in front was an escape route. Now we will use metal doors with an insulation of 56 dB. Who would like to experience more over the topic fire protection can read itself on the Website of the „Berufsgenossenschaft Nahrungsmittel und Gewerbe", please click here. Nevertheless our good connection to the building authorities enabled us a rapid start of construction - a high on good architects because a renewed permission could have lasted between 6 - 12 months. In the following you will find the fire protection plan of our construction building. The green arrows mark the fire brigade movement areas. The hydrants are marked in blue. In the next part we will deal with the construction team as well as the technical studio equipment.
