How They Did It: Equestrian Stables

Aug 09, 2018

When Clever Association was approached about integrating an elite show jumping facility that would rival the finest in Europe, there were several key considerations that would ensure that both staff and visitors would have the best possible onsite experience.

Clever Association worked incredibly closely with the architect and building contractor to make sure all routes were considered in the proposed AutoCAD duct layout plans. Once those plans were finalized, duct-grade multi-mode fiber-optic bundles were installed through the ducts to link the buildings across the expansive property. To handle the Wi-Fi needs, the integrator utilized Cisco managed Gigabit Ethernet switches in each of the main buildings, acting as distribution points to locally hardwired equipment, including 10 Ruckus Wi-Fi access points.

A total of nine audio zones were connected with a mix of HEOS By Denon for the working spaces and Bowers & Wilkins weatherproof monitors for the stables and the arena. Televisions were installed in four key areas with a centralized Sky+HD satellite receiver, distributed to them via a DVB modulator presenting it is a selectable channel alongside the standard Freeview line-up.

Customers who visit this space expect a high-quality experience from reception to meeting spaces, so Clever Association outfitted the offices with a Lutron HomeWorks QS lighting control system, which makes the entire working environment more luxurious no matter the time of day or night. This system won the 2017 CEDIA Award for Best Special Project.
