This set used to be part of the shipyards, this is where the Titanic was built, that’s how big it is.... it’s really a beautiful job.

The paint hall

  • Originally part of the Harland and Wolff shipyard,
    the Paint Hall contains 4 x 16,000ft² “cells”, set out in a square connected by an internal road and streets
  • Each cell measures 90ft high and has one 3ft thick external “wall” that is actually a 75ft high door
  • None of the cell ceilings is external and the building is “double-skinned” reducing noise pollution
  • The facility offers a suite of offices, workshops, a green room and its own internal electrical substation which provides 110v, 240v and 3 phase power to the whole building.


  • Harcourt constructed new purpose-built sound stages adjacent to the Paint Hall in 2012
  • Two large free-span spaces, each 21,000ft², capable of combined use as one large space of 42,000ft².
  • Eaves’ height of approximately 43ft.
  • Space incorporates high performance acoustic fabric, high-level walkways and rigging gantries with power, lighting and internal environment options to suit the full spectrum of film production uses.
  • Tax breaks for high-end television drama and animation
The massive sets played from one end to the next all in unison. To have it all located in this one very, very impressive place was a treat for everybody to work.
