Contributing to the restoration of The Savoy to its former glory is the installation of Synergy wiring accessories from Legrand.

As part of the intense attention to detail in the Ł220 million refurbishment of The Savoy in London, Legrand wiring accessories and cable-management equipment have been installed throughout. Equipment included bespoke wiring devices in chrome and brass with roped edges from the Synergy range for all guest rooms and public areas. Behind the scenes, Swifts cable tray and ladder was used to carry cables.

The project to restore The Savoy to its former glory took three years — with its two main design aesthetics, Edwardian and Art Deco, being carefully brought back to life under the direction of designer Pierre Yves Rochon.

Chris Clements, Legrand’s international key accounts and project manager, comments, ‘The Savoy is amongst the most famous hotel names in the world, so every manufacturer in the electrical industry was eager to ensure their products were specified for use in this extraordinary project.

‘We secured the wiring-device element of the project following a competitive presentation to consultant Hurley Palmer Flatt and the hotel’s owners, the Fairmont Hotel Group, during which we demonstrated not just the high quality of our Synergy range but also our ability to deliver bespoke solutions that met the exceptionally high standards of the specification.’

Legrand then secured the cable-management order on its ability to deliver competitively priced, market-leading solutions.

The main electrical contractor was Phoenix Electrical.
