When Her Majesty The Queen officially opened Somerset House East Wing (SHEW), it marked the culimination of 18 months of restoration. Somerset House East Wing is now home to the College’s School of Law and new cultural hub, the Inigo Rooms.
Reflex was responsible for the specifying, planning and fitting all of the technology for the project, installed across 22 rooms and a total of 4 floors.
The brief included developing several of the rooms to a very high standard of luxury, with the intention of hiring them out to prestigious third parties.
Technologies implemented included digital signage throughout, control systems, video conferencing, full audio solutions with noise masking, induction loops and wireless mics, and a variety of display devices including projectors and LCD flat screens. Reflex also installed all the furniture and room booking systems, handled the switching and distribution, and installed touchpanel control for all the systems.
The work included installation of equipment in Moot Court, a facility that allows the School of Law students to gain experience in a realistic court setting.
Oluchi Uduku, the Senior Project Manager for SHEW commented “Having worked with Reflex for over 18 months on SHEW, their careful attention to our requirements and willingness to work with us has been a pleasant experience.”
