Case Study:
Strand Palace London

Strand Palace London - Bars & Restaurants by CGA Integration


Just minutes from Covent Garden and the Thames, Strand Palace has been welcoming guests since 1909. The recent refurbishment has unveiled a brand new lobby, reception, front entrance and concourse which have been transformed into a new stylish hub in the heart of the hotel. The lobby reconstruction features subtle art deco influences that integrate contemporary design detail and a sophisticated colour palette. Complete with new seating areas, all are carefully showcased within a serene and uplifting environment, creating a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere. CGA have provided the sound system for this new lobby area and have also designed and installed audio systems in the brand new Haxells Restaurant & Bar, Afternoon Tearoom and Private Dining Room in Haxells, where you can enjoy British inspired cuisine with modern art deco inspired décor.


CGA Integration had to plan a staged delivery of AV to minimise any impact on guests as Strand Palace remained open and fully trading throughout the extensive refurbishment programme.


CGA Integration designed a centrally controllable ground floor system with five zones, whilst still allowing a local input in the Private Dining Room for maximum guest flexibility. Speakers have been finished to Ral colours to match the new interior design and create minimum visual impact, and local control plates were installed across all areas to allow full control of the audio in each zone. CGA Integration also worked with Strand Palace to enable pre-recorded fire test and safety messages for ‘test situations’ to be programmed into the audio system they installed.


David Pryde Head of IT Strand Palace commented “the sound system CGA has installed delivers a wonderful sound and has given us great flexibility across the hotel.”
