To reimagine a new grandstand following an 18-month, £2 million design programme which should have taken 3 years.
To re-engineer a technically complex and fundamentally flawed grand stand design into a working system, representative of Ascot’s stature as a world-class sports venue.Next: The Technology
A sound system distributed across three primary rack rooms at the east, centre and west of the main grandstand. A central loudspeaker cluster mounted on a 20m pole opposite the grandstand and a distributed network of 1,000 loudspeakers provides primary voice coverage across the site.
Loudspeakers were strategically integrated to blend with the aesthetics of the site. Working with consultants and fit out teams, Sysco ensured the correct installation of cabling to guarantee the infrastructure was certifiably reliable to meet the stringent requirements of VA systems in the UK.
High standards of our team and contractors needed to reflect the renowned status of Ascot Racecourse. By implementing stringent communication and delivery processes, a trusting relationship was crafted which has resulted in a long term relationship. To this day, Sysco provides on-site event support for all subsequent race meets and ongoing upgrade programmes for the venue.
Realising the scale and complexity of the project and delivering a 36 month project in only an 18 month period. This required confident handling and understanding of the project scope and efficiency in process management, earning us the award for Best Contractor from the ISG project director.
