Knightsbridge Developments

 

Home Technology Brief: 

“Three luxury apartments require first and secondary staged installation. A high spec control system and lighting design is required to meet the developer’s requirements, whilst cabling must be comprehensive enough to allow future residents to make the home their own.”

Information

The Property Market:

Developers always walk the line between providing luxury and budgeting the right amount of Audio Visual equipment for their builds. These luxury properties, situated on the sleepy walk between South Kensington and Knightsbridge, needed consultation in order to hit their brief (and profit margins). 

The Challenges:

With a minimalist design, this property needed to take the budgetary and time-scale considerations of the developer into consideration, along with the unknown requirements of the ultimate end-user. Four-story London townhouses, we needed to ensure Wi-Fi and wired access to the internet was available throughout the property.

The Inspired Solution:

Examples of the range of technology available in home of this size and spec were presented and talked through with our developer. He was then able to pick and choose which parts were a necessity (such as CCTV, door entry, lighting control, discreet speakers, flush mounted screens and Internet Access) and which should be left up to the ultimate owner’s discretion. Along with comprehensive Wi-Fi coverage, our delivery team cabled the property with TV points in every room, and an excess of Cat6 cable within the infrastructure – so however the home is enhanced, the options and support are there.
