Arora Hotel – Greenwich
Client: Arora Group
Let by: NG Bailey
Control Solutions: KNX
Scope of works: Detailed design, supply programming and commissioning of hotel bedroom lighting controls
The Arora Greenwich hotel (now InterContinental Hotel O2) has over 450 guest rooms and suites.
IBT Controls provided the lighting control dimming solution to all guest rooms. This entailed testing of numerous LED laps to ensure compatibility with various dimming ranges and creating bespoke dimming curves within the LED dimming controllers to ensure scene operation was smooth, flicker free and created the ambience appropriate to a 5 star room.
Custom one of a kind switches were developed and sourced to ensure the switch finish matched the Hotel brand guide book and was consistent with other hotels within the group.
Pre fabricated room control enclosures with fast connect plugs and pre-downloaded software meant on site delivery was simply a case of ensuring the electrical contractor connected in circuits and control cabling to design drawings.
This approach ensured a rapid rollout to rooms was possible and lent more time to testing and snagging before handover.
