Stunning boutique hotel in London’s West End with bespoke architectural lighting control and emergency monitoring system.
The new 34 bedroom boutique style Mandrake Hotel features a new more traditional frontage and a new walkway at fourth floor level linking the two buildings. The main bedrooms are located on the upper floors overlooking the central courtyard. The reception, bar, restaurant and lounge are located at ground floor level around the central courtyard and a meeting room / function suite in the basement area.
To support the development project a number of sustainability measures were incorporated within the design including the use of absence / presence detection, lighting controls and emergency monitoring system.
TheisCraft Lighting Controls and the electrical contractor CAG have designed a bespoke solution.
Lighting control panels incorporating lighting circuits with DALI technology, 1-10V, DMX and switching along with emergency monitoring in accordance with EN50172 which tracks the performance of every emergency light fitting.
Each panel has been custom designed to provide an electrical distribution board style solution so that it has the isolation for each area protected by MCBs for circuit protection. The panels are then closely matched to the circuits and type of control needed for the type of luminaire and control method for the area and the style of each part of the hotel.
The scene control plates are a metal flat plate style finished in various colours to suit the mood of the hotel.
TheisCraft Limited have been appointed to supply controls for all areas of the hotel including the guest bedrooms, front of house areas such as the lounges, restaurants, bars, publicly accessible locations, court yards and the external lighting.
In addition to lighting controls, Theiscraft were also asked to manufacture a complete modular wiring solution. We have provided a pre-wired metal conduit cabling system that provides a simple plug and play connection system for all the lighting in the bedrooms and corridors, negating the need for timely and intensive manpower installation processes.
