Brightening up the office at ICG

“WE LOVE THE EFFECT THE SYSTEM HAS HAD ON OUR STAFF”

Ensuring the happiness of its employees is ICG’s key goal. So, in order to improve the mood amongst their workers, they came to us looking for a brand-new music system – something that would allow them to play their own music off their phones.

THE CLIENT

ICG Medical is a leading healthcare recruitment provider. With offices based in a railway arch in Lambeth, it’s one of the largest healthcare staffing companies in the UK and prides itself on always providing the highest quality service.

Working with over 10,000 of the highest rated nurses and doctors, their offices are a bustling hub of activity under immense pressure.

THE PROBLEM

Ensuring the happiness of its employees is ICG’s key goal. So, in order to improve the mood amongst their workers, they came to us looking for a brand-new music system – something that would allow them to play their own music off their phones.

However, we weren’t working with any regular space. The large office features a double height, glass fronted foyer with an open-plan upper mezzanine area. This unique setup meant we had to be very particular about the technology and equipment we chose to ensure the music could be heard without echoing or distortion.

THE SOLUTION

After understanding more about the space and their needs, we arrived upon an end-to-end solution from Apart Audio. A key desire from ICG was for the new system to be understated so as to not interfere with the décor, so we took this on board when placing every aspect of the arrangement.

By using a well-thought-out electronics system, we were able to install a discrete control panel and store all the amps and electronics in an IT cupboard. A built-in lockable metal rack meant there was no danger of the system being disrupted or messed with over time.

Plus, by hanging two sphere speakers in the foyer at the same height as the pendant lights, we were able to create a speaker system that blended seamlessly with the rest of the landscape. Similarly, the silver-finish to the MASK speakers on the upper floor blended flawlessly with the galvanised metal cable tray they were installed on.

With such a large space to work with, the placement of the speakers was vital. To place the little MASK4 speakers, we used a specialised computer system that allowed us to ensure they were spread in such a way that meant they weren’t disruptive to workers, but that the music could be heard clearly across the office.

The perfect balance of quality and cost-efficiency, the system provided ICG with exactly what they needed.

THE FEEDBACK

“The Apart Audio solution was exactly what was needed. It provided the perfect balance of quality and cost-efficiency and the feedback has been brilliant. Plus, it’s got enough welly for the occasional staff party and karaoke!”
