Situated in the heart of London’s Covent Garden, One Aldwych, one of the Leading Hotels of the World, has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme to create a sophisticated new look with an infrastructure fit for the future. CGA Integration have designed and installed new audio visual systems in the hotel’s meeting rooms, public spaces, restaurants and spa, to help to create a truly inspiring new guest experience
Due to the extent of the refurbishment, the hotel was closed for three months until the work was complete. As such, CGA Integration needed to coordinate with all other contractors to ensure that the project was delivered on time and within budget, so that the hotel could reopen to guests as and when planned.
As part of the refurbishment, CGA Integration centralised the AV of all public spaces into one rack housed in the basement and installed a new digital processor and amplifiers, interfacing the AV with the fire alarm system. Audio input panels were installed throughout to enable localised tailored sound in specific areas, without it being broadcast across the whole hotel network. CGA also provided local touch panels to enable volume control where needed. New Electro-Voice speakers were fitted in the lobby, meeting rooms and in the Spa treatment rooms, with existing speakers being reused where appropriate. CGA Integration also fitted two 75” televisions in the meeting rooms and replaced the amplifier in the Eneko Basque Kitchen and Bar, re-equalising the sound into the central rack system.
Janine Marshall General Manager One Aldwych commented” 1 Aldwych first opened its doors twenty years ago and now was the right time to update the hotel to create a superbly comfortable, modern, sophisticated venue to once again set the benchmark in hotel design. CGA have helped us to deliver this throughout, with an AV system that creates the right atmosphere in each area; providing a great sounding, flexible system which is easy for staff to use.”
