Ardington House is a listed country house with a large marquee on its grounds. Sound Ceilings UK were contacted by the venue’s resident DJ as the marquee was at risk of being closed down by the local EHO. After organising a site visit and consultation which was attended by the EHO, Sound Ceilings UK provided a few options based on their budget. It was established that all possible options except the installation of a Sound Ceiling would result in the venue having to considerably turn down the PA to a level that would hinder the quality of entertainment. Having never heard the Ceiling in operation, the client was a little sceptical. Sound Ceilings UK offered to install a Sound Ceiling on a demo basis for one wedding.
The Sound Ceiling was installed on the Friday and on the Saturday evening, we undertook sound readings along with the EHO in the marquee and at the nearest local residences. At all residences the music was inaudible. The client was so impressed with the effectiveness of the system, the demo Sound Ceiling was purchased on the spot.
