iWireless Solutions is excited to announce the start of our work at Storyhouse – Chester’s brand new theatre, library and cinema. Storyhouse is the largest regional arts project currently under construction in the UK. iWireless Solutions’ role within this project is the ICT Specialist to design and install HD Wi-Fi, LAN and hosted Unified Communications throughout the building ready for the grand opening
Storyhouse is located in the heart of Chester, it combines the Grade II listed shell of a former Odeon cinema and a brick and glass extension it is set to open in May 2017. The renovation project is costing £37 million and will consist of a theatre, cinema, café bar, studio and library. iWireless Solutions is working closely with Kier Construction Northern, the main contractors, to ensure smooth integration of all wireless technology to ensure it fits in seamlessly with the bespoke architecture. During the design stage, particular attention was paid to the different materials used and their effect on wireless signal to ensure the system can accommodate the 600,000 visitors expected a year.
