FOR A COTSWOLD HOME

INSIGHT

It would have been easy to dig up the garden, lay the cables and just leave… but Lamont worked with the landscaper to ensure the garden looked exactly as it had before.

 
 
The Client
 

Our projects are diverse. From the outside, this picture-perfect 18th century, Grade 11 listed house had a mature garden that suggested it might have looked the same for the last 150 years.

Inside was similarly authentic, full of original beams and lath and plaster walls which obviously were off-limits for altering or removing. A substantial task lay ahead as our client outlined their need for a comprehensive telecommunications network throughout the house, secure wifi and a discreet, hidden audio system in the principal rooms.

This was a house with walls so thick a cordless phone system simply wouldn’t function. Lamont director and chief engineer, Adam Covell devised an ingenious solution to infrastructure cabling – to lay numerous cables underneath the garden and throughout the house in a way that not even the keenest eye would spot them. No mean feat for a house whose walls were built a few hundred years before the need for cabling.

A team of engineers led by Adam carried out the installation, working in collaboration with the client’s landscape gardener. The result surpassed the client’s expectations, and brought this beautiful old house firmly into the 21st century.    

 

Sometimes it’s the smaller projects that offer the greatest challenges… my satisfaction still lies in seeing the smile on a client’s face once the job is complete.
