Chelmsford Racecourse is one of the country’s newest racing venues and opened its doors in January 2015 with brand new 3,000 capacity hospitality grandstand.

Customer: Our client for this project was 24-7 Electrical, who we have worked with since August 2014.

Location: Essex

Requirement: New PA system

Brief: The client required a new Public Address System for their state-of-the-art hospitality building. The whole of the building needed to be linked up to a broadcasting system to allow announcements and music to be heard in the restaurant, bar, reception, function and external terrace areas.

Solution: We installed a variety of independent speaker units to permit announcements and broadcasts in the specified spaces. We also ensured the system had the facility to play music, which is interrupted when voice is activated. The job was completed within one week and six engineers worked on the project.

Equipment installed:

39U 800 x 800 Cab

Z8 8 Zone Mixer

Z4 4 Zone Mixer

Pagin Mic

DAB / FM / CD Player

28 x Twin Cone Ceiling Speakers

86 x 20w 100v 2 way coaxial Speakers

20 x 30w 100v music horn

3500 1mm 2 core cable

What the client said: “PDS have done a fantastic job with our new PA system. We wanted to integrate the system across every room in our new 3,000 capacity hospitality building and it works perfectly. Our customers can now listen to our announcements and music across all areas of the building
