SC Builders constructed sound studios in Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (PlayStation) headquarters in San Mateo (architect: Rapt Studio). The studios fill one 35,000 SF floor that houses 17 sound studios, a mix master control room, and a recording studio where sound effects are created for PlayStation video games.
Sony also tapped SC Builders for their studios in Santa Monica (architect: Gensler), a highly collaborative space converted from a USPS distribution center. This 82,000 SF space includes a mezzanine level featuring numerous exterior conference and huddle rooms adjoining open office space in the interior. The first floor includes a large open office area as well as eight sound editing rooms and two recording studios.
SC Builders also constructed a state-of-the-art PlayStation Motion Capture Studio in Los Angeles (architect: Gensler). This 17,400 SF facility houses two complete studios, both containing high-end audio and video components. Construction included installation of structural I-beams for action sequences and future stage production needs.
