Another high profile project has been completed by the TFG installations team under Mark Solomons for long time client The Royal Society of Chemistry, one of the UK’s oldest professional scientific associations, upgrading its audio-visual facilities at its Burlington House home in London’s Mayfair. Burlington House is famed for its historic library that not only houses a world-class collection of scientific journals but is also a leading event venue.
The key to the library’s attraction as a venue, prized by users for seminars, conferences, lectures, awards ceremonies and private functions, is its integrated AV facilities and, taking the opportunity to benefit from the latest technological advances, the RSC decided to upgrade its systems in order to provide better coverage and improved intelligibility to meet the growing demands of its many clients.
As a trusted supplier to the RSC, Torpedo Factory Group were appointed to design and commission a brand new solution. “We’ve had a long and excellent relationship with TFG,” said the RSC’s facilities team head Grant Verrell. “Since they were intimately familiar with our existing equipment they were the natural choice for this upgrade, and we trusted from experience that a new project would be completed quickly and efficiently.”
K-array loudspeaker systems were discreetly positioned to provide uniform coverage of the room, while a ceiling-mounted Epson projector and HD screens provide bright, high definition visuals for all the Society’s events.
“TFG gave us exceptional service throughout the project,” said Verrell. “Mark and the TFG team kept us informed at every stage, and nothing was too much trouble for them. We’re very satisfied with what they’ve achieved.”
