THE RITZ CARLTON TORONTO EPOCH
Opening in 2011, The Ritz Carlton Toronto has become a staple of luxury in Toronto known for its modern interiors and red carpet parties, The HIDI Group provided electrical design for the hotel and we are proud to continue that relationship with Cadillac Fairview and the Ritz Carlton Toronto on the renovation of the DEQ terrace and bar located on the main floor. The scope of work required electrical, communications, audiovisual design and modernization of the existing sound system of both the interior bar and exterior terrace. Working closely with the interior designers our team made careful selections of the speakers used as they were to be heard and not seen. The new system was developed to work along side the existing hotels electrical and audio infrastructure.
Developing a system that provided more individual zones, allowed for more control over the volume and source selection in individual areas of the space. The HIDI Team also added the ability for a DJ to set up in the bar and connect to a separate pair of DJ specific speakers as well as the main audio system. On the terrace we updated outdoor speakers mounted to the exterior of the building and provided a connection to allow a DJ to set up on the terrace for outdoor entertainment and ability to feed into the main audio system. Two 55” displays at the bar were also installed which will show content from Ritz Carlton’s digital signage network.
