During the construction of the Crow Wood Hotel and Spa Report, building contractor Walsh Integrated Building Services sought a trusted supplier to provide durable wiring accessories with a high quality, designer finish. Electrical wholesaler LED Electrical Nelson, based in Nelson, Lancashire, recommended Hamilton Litestat’s products for installation throughout the bedrooms and bathrooms in its 70 guest rooms, along with the bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas in its six guest suites.
Hamilton worked closely with LED Electrical Nelson and Walsh Integrated Building Services to find designer decorative wiring accessories suited to the aesthetic and functionality requirements of the modern and effortlessly stylish guest rooms and suites.
Aiming for an elegant and timeless look, Hamilton’s sleek Hartland CFX design was chosen for all applications throughout the guest areas, ensuring design continuity. It was selected in a sophisticated Satin Steel finish with Satin Steel switches and Black inserts, which complement the finish of the bespoke accent light fittings selected for the rooms.
Bedrooms: In each of the 70 guest bedrooms, three plates with differing functionalities were located on each side of the bed: a Switched Double Socket for easy charging of devices; a Single 1-Gang Switch Plate to control the bedside reading light, and a Single 2-Gang Switch Plate to control both lighting located above the bed and the main room light.
Further wiring accessories were selected for installation at each desk/vanity area in the guest bedrooms. A 2-Gang 13A Switched Socket with both 2.1A and 1A USB charging outlets allow guests to easily use devices and work at the desk if needed. A 5A lighting point was also installed within the seating area to ensure the space is well lit.
Suites: For installation in the six guest suites, Hamilton provided additional charging points and lighting control functionality. At the side of each bed, the Switched Double Socket has been upgraded to include Dual 2.1A and 1A USB outlets for additional charging options. The bedside 2-Gang Switch is replaced with Retractive Switches that deliver dimming capability, allowing guests to alter the light intensity depending on their requirements or preferred ambience.
All bedrooms and suites have a Dual 2.1A and 1A USB Switched Socket located at the desk/vanity area, while the suites also have a 4-Gang Grid Plate positioned here to control the lighting for the lobby, seated area and bed area. In the seated area, two additional 5A Unswitched Sockets support the power requirements for lamps positioned either side of the suite’s TV monitor.
Throughout all bathrooms, a Single Grid plate with 20A cable outlet is installed for the heated towel rail. The Result: Hamilton’s Hartland CFX solutions provide functional yet sleek, stylish and sophisticated wiring accessories that complement the overall architecture and interior design of the resort. Guests lighting and charging requirements are provided for with elegant simplicity.
Darren Worgan, Senior Contracts Manager at Walsh Integrated Building Services, selected the products and says: “Hamilton’s wiring accessories provided the perfect finishing touch and continue the high-quality and sophisticated look and feel delivered by the room overall. Guests visiting the resort come for a luxurious experience, and they will get that at every point in their stay – the greatest attention to detail has been paid to all elements of the build, and Hamilton’s wiring accessories illustrate this.”
Mark Kitchen, Business Development Manager at LED Electrical Nelson, added: “Hamilton is a dependable brand that I’ve worked with on many projects, offering excellent quality for a great price. On this development, as with previous projects, we also benefited from Hamilton’s Bristol-based manufacturing, which ensured swift delivery of products and meant we were able to meet tight installation deadlines.”
Andrew Brown, Managing Director, at Crow Wood Leisure, says: “We’ve received fantastic feedback from guests about their experiences staying at the resort since we opened in October 2019. The functionality, finish and placement of the wiring accessories delivers exactly what our guests need and expect of a luxury resort like the Crow Wood Hotel.”
