Radio Ninesprings studio ‘on silent’ thanks to Jones Building Group

Jones Building Group has come to the aid of a new local community radio station in Yeovil.

Background traffic noise could be heard every time the microphone was live at Radio Ninesprings, a new community radio station for Yeovil and South Somerset with a studio at Waterloo House in Yeovil.

Jones Building Group blocked a ceiling void and fitted extra plaster boards at the premises to the stop the ingress of unwanted sound and now the studio is properly soundproofed. D Glass, part of the Jones Building Group, also donated a window that has been installed as a viewing panel to see into the studio.


The works were planned by Chris Snell, Property Services Manager and delivered on site by Multi-Skilled Operatives Lee Budge and Carlo Flemming and Carpenter James Snell, who is one year into his improver programme following the completion of his NVQ Level 2 Carpentry Apprenticeship with Jones Building Group. Thanks to their smart work, plans to launch the radio station in August are now back on track.


Station Director, Steve Haigh, said: “Our microphones were picking up all kinds of extraneous noises with cars accelerating from the Tesco car park and helicopters flying over the town. Now we have a studio that is properly soundproofed and we are enormously grateful to Jones Building Group for providing this work.”

On the project, Chris Snell, Property Services Manager at Jones Building Group said: "Jones Building Group have been involved in supporting the local community through various projects for many years. It was a pleasure to have helped Yeovil’s own local community radio station, Radio Ninesprings, by soundproofing their studio as part of National Apprenticeship Week. We offer our best wishes to the radio station for their launch in August.”

Radio Ninesprings will be heard on FM across Yeovil and South Somerset from August onwards - without background traffic noise!
