The expansion of Elstree Studios reached a major milestone recently, as construction was completed on the outer structures of the two new soundstages and ancillary workshops. To celebrate, we hosted a topping out and tour of the stages, now known as The Platinum Stages.

Helping to secure the final bolt in place on the roof was the Mayor of Hertsmere, Cllr Anne Swerling; also in attendance were representatives from Hertsmere Borough Council, Elstree Studios Board of Directors and the Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

The soundstages have a combined footprint of 36,166 sq ft, about half the size of a professional football pitch, and stand at 65 feet tall; designed to meet international space standards in studio design and provide a state-of-the-art environment for film and television production.
