Audio, WiFi and Security Install – Godalming Mansion

This mansion dating back to pre-1700s was recently converted into apartments. There is an unbroken record up to the present day of the estate’s owners, many of whom held high positions in the service of the king or queen of their time. As a grade I listed building, limitations of works had to be observed.

Due to the building’s thick walls, Wi-Fi distribution was previously limited, we implemented a total of 6 Araknis access points which comfortably covered all areas of the property.

Our client specified a distributed audio system around the house, with the ability to add zones to play together or used individually, this included 3-bedroom suites, a drawing room, dining area and kitchen. These audio zones were all controlled using an 8-inch portable Control4 touchscreens located in each of the rooms.

In addition to the internal audio, a discreet system was required for the garden patio area. The average external speakers would not be fitting for the location, with the buildings historic features it was important the speakers were as hidden as possible. The triad array system was ideal for the install, with 6 dark brown small satellite speakers fixed below the wall level, ensuring these could not be seen from the grounds. In addition to the speakers an external grade triad subwoofer was placed in the corner to pack the extra punch if required.

An existing media room was in place, boasting Monitor Audio bookshelf speakers and a TV hidden behind a moveable library shelves. With existing cabling in place, we looked to upgrade the system with newer equipment whilst maintaining the rooms elegant aesthetics. Replacing the monitor audio bookshelf speakers for their newer and more powerful replacements. The backbone AVR was replaced with a sleek new Denon to distribute the audio and send video to the new 55 inch Samsung 4k TV.

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Stephen and Toby for all their hard work in getting our Control4 system up and running smoothly. We are so pleased with how everything now looks so neat and tidy. Also, Stephen was very patient with me asking stupid questions!
