TBY2, the new three-studio expansion of Bristol’s Bottle Yard Studios, will open its doors to TV and film production from September.
TBY2 is situated less than half a mile from the main Bottle Yard site in South Bristol, with fully sound insulated and acoustically treated stages offering 20,000 sq ft, 16,500 sq ft and 7,000 sq ft of clear span build space with maximum heights of 34ft.
More than 40,000 sq ft of ancillary space is also available, including serviced production offices, prop stores, construction workshops, costume/makeup and break out areas. The TBY2 site is supported with up to 10GB secure connectivity and 24/7 site security, said the company.
The three new stages at TBY2 increase the total number of stages at The Bottle Yard Studios to 11. The Studios’ expansion is intended to maintain and grow film and TV production in Bristol and the West of England.
The new site includes a sophisticated building management system to optimise energy conservation, with built-in heating, cooling and ventilation in all stages. Energy supply for the facility is intended to be supported by a large photovoltaic (PV) array. Transport between the main Bottle Yard Studios site and the TBY2 facility will be carbon neutral, with electric vehicle (EV) points and ample cycling provision supporting low carbon movement, said the company.
Titles recently filmed at The Bottle Yard Studios include STARZ Original Series Becoming Elizabeth (which premieres this weekend), and both seasons of Stephen Merchant’s BBC/Amazon series The Outlaws.
