Our South East London workshop gives us a total of 40,000 sq ft of indoor footprint.

The internal height of 7.5m provides space for large-scale builds and in addition, we have another 20,000 sq ft of hardstanding yard area for easy truck access and outdoor test builds. We have a dedicated area of 5000 sq ft for client storage where sets and installations can be kept in a secure, dry space for future use.

“One of our key strengths is our range of departments and skills all under one roof. We have expanded each workshop department and invested in new equipment, benches, machinery and storage.”

Liam Ownsworth, Director


Our team of experienced project managers provide a point of contact for clients from start to finish; costing, advising on materials and construction process, scheduling and handling all aspects of the build from initial brief to site installation and planning for re-use.


The Diagon Studio has a dedicated team of designers and draftspeople producing detailed drawings in a range of software including AutoCAD 3D for client approval and workshop fabrication. With our extensive knowledge of materials and fabrication, we can turn ideas into feasible reality along with 3D printing for models and prototypes.

“Project management, CAD drafting, CNC machining, carpentry, engineering and paint finishing are all done in house - meaning that the vast majority of projects are completed start to finish by our team under our control.”
