Grade II* Listed Hall — Audio Visual System

This audio visual system was a great challenge for our team here. Producing the right system for our client, and making it fit in with the buildings unique beauty and its surroundings.

Our client came to us with an idea of integrating a full lighting control system, RF and audio distribution and wireless network around the building. We were more than happy to help. The production of the cable schedule and drawings had to be investigated thoroughly to make sure that each cable run could be completed without having to remove any of the buildings interior or exterior components. Helping with this we have used the latest in wireless lighting solutions by using a Rako wireless keypad lighting system. The use of this meant that we could add a lighting keypad anywhere our client wanted. The keypads themselves were ordered in a brass plate to match the interior of the house.

The addition of a full wireless network using the latest in Draytek Router and Access Points, we provided full Wi-Fi coverage over all the house allowing full connectivity when roaming from room to room. Finally we introduced a full Sonos music system. This allowed our client to control his music from his phone, tablet or pc and choose what room they wanted music to be played in.
