The scheme will include more than 20 sound stages

ISG, which recorded £2.3bn revenue last year, will be responsible for the design build and fit-out of Sunset Waltham Cross Studios, which will be comprised of four main hubs with 21 sound stages, nine workshops and ancillary buildings.

The project will embrace a modern methods of construction-focused methodology and also includes heritage works to restore existing grade II-listed farm buildings and new landscaping.

It will feature a large photovoltaic installation and reduce resource consumption through rainwater harvesting.
