Project: North Norfolk Cinema and Home Spa Project


Initial Meeting: Client, Electrical Contractor, Bespoke Joiner

The Brief:

  • To create a dedicated Cinema room for watching Movies on a largest possible projection screen size for the room, which would conceal a DLS surround sound system with perforated screen, the screen size to fill the back wall of the room.
  • To have a high end Projection for cinema quality HD resolution.
  • Lighting Control in the Cinema, Gym and Spa area along with stream music using Sonos via discreet in ceiling speakers
  • One remote for all control rather than 5 different remotes (Simplicity was the key)

Design & Planning:

Once we had agreed the products required for this project with our client, work commenced on the wiring schematics and product positioning. Plans were drawn for both the wiring and also the framework needed for the speaker and screen wall.


Thanks to great planning and designing the install was straight forward and was completed in 3 days.

Once the cables and stud work frame had been constructed, we started with the install of the rack equipment into the central hub at the rear of the cinema room.

All speakers were installed and tested, the screen was built and projector installed to complete the cinema set up.

Our engineer programmed the Control 4, Rako and Nest Thermostats so they would all work off an iPad through Control 4’s interface for a simple one remote solution.

A wired cabling structure was installed to enable multiple wireless access points to be connected. This delivered whole house wi-fi for wireless devices, creating seamless wi-fi connectivity around the whole property.
