Case Study:
The Grill at The Dorchester Hotel, London

www.dorchesterhotel.com/the-grill

   

Outline
The Dorchester represents another landmark project in fine dining matching cuisine with the pinnacle of venues. For the audio suite vision of F&B manager Mr Renaud Gregoire, Dorchester management turned to their long-term AV partner CGA Integration Ltd. The brief was simply to deliver an audio experience matching and exceeding levels already contributing to the success of four other venues at the Park Lane institution.

 

Challenges
Rising to the challenge of zero impact to decor and operations is a CGA Integration Ltd trademark. Combining this with a sensitive venue and the requirement to match the dining excellence comprised the core of the challenge for the dining experience to be achieved.
These demanding criteria present complex technical challenges for delivering audio evenly across the venue from limited, invisible audio sources. Once produced, audio is also heavily modified by décor requiring expert assessment of system design and sound engineer led commissioning to provide a bespoke match to the dining environment.

 

Technical
The enviable richness of audio achieved in the finished project derives from a confident over specification of hardware delivering effortless system headroom. With zero visibility installation a priority, CGA Integration opted for an imaginative audio routing via ceiling reflection to create a polysource sound field for every diner. This painstaking approach generates a unique and sumptuous experience from flexible content specified as part of the dining vision and delivered from an Eight Track hard drive music player.

 

Comment
Chris Gunton praised his team 'In the Dorchester, fine dining means attention to every single detail, far beyond the plate. To deliver our part of that vision we must match this attention to detail from installation to sound quality commissioning. We are delighted our contribution to the Grill is another level of excellence for their diners.’
