As with all Hotel Indigo® establishments, the area was carefully researched with Matthews Mee Interior Design incorporating heritage elements into its design. Working with electrical contractor Kier and local wholesaler Evans Electrical, Hamilton’s sleek and stylish Hartland collection of box-fix decorative wiring accessories were selected for the 122-guestroom hotel.
Hartland 1, 2 and 3-gang rocker switches were specified for lighting. 2-gang dual-switched sockets were selected for power supply while dual-switched sockets with two USB charger points were fitted at bedsides. The 1A rated USB port is for mobile phone charging and the 2.1A port is for tablets and other devices, supporting modern guest demands for 24/7 connectivity.
Hamilton’s hotel key card switch welcomes guests, while a European SCHUKO and dual USB 2-gang switched socket was fitted in a bespoke plate above the vanity table to make European visitors more comfortable.
The Hartland design in Matt Black finish with Copper switches and Matt Black inserts furnishes the 72 ‘Made in Wales’ and 31 ‘Welsh Industry’ rooms. The 19 ‘Music’ rooms feature Hartland in Antique Brass with Antique Brass switches and Black inserts. All 122 bathrooms are fitted with Hartland plates in Satin Steel with White inserts.
Andrew Miles, senior project manager, Kier Construction Western and Wales, said: “Having seen the hotel’s design we were confident we could successfully collaborate with Hamilton and deliver a bespoke solution that could achieve the aspirations of Mathew Mee. The clean, timeless design of the Hartland collection was perfect for this project.”
Hotel Indigo® Cardiff’s General Manager, Tom Gaskell, added: “We take immense pride in our attention to detail and we’re pleased to have found an electrical partner that takes this as seriously as us. It’s these little touches that turns a nice hotel into an exceptional hotel.”
