Acoustic Isolation / Soundproofing / Sound Management – Noise Reduction & Control / Noise Mapping / Architectural Acoustics / Noise Exposure / Building Acoustics Measurement
Acoustic Treatment is an essential (and sometimes a legal) requirement in venues including teaching spaces, work environments, performance spaces and outdoor spaces where noise exposure, reverberation time and sound pressure levels need to be monitored and controlled.
We can control sound using methods including absorption, reflection and diffusion. R&W’s team of experts understand the capabilities of industry products, materials and applications to ensure that treatments provide the perfect working environment for your requirements/venue’s uses, whilst also complying with industry and legal standards.
Contact R&W for more information on how to go about acoustically treating your venue.

Maintain a comfortable and energy efficient work/home environment with our Building Management System and other services. As well as saving on energy bills, managing you building’s technology can have a remarkably positive impact on the day-to-day running of your building in a number of capacities. For example, you may want to install a Building Automation System (BAS: aka. Building Management System, BMS) into your building to automatically control and monitor the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment including the lighting, ventilation, intercom systems, car park, landscaping, power systems, fire systems, CCTV and security etc. This control of your building’s technology can extend to occupancy times (so that your technology switches off/on either at specific predetermined times having been programmed into the system or activated by sensors), and also alerts (when the environment isn’t as it should be/doesn’t meet programmed specification).
We offer a range of building management services which cover a wide range of applications within the commercial, education, public, arts hospitality and leisure sectors. Most technology or system can be incorporated into our (management) system for management purposes. We provide a range of options from single room to entire building block / organisation systems. We listen and discuss your requirements during a free-needs analysis session (see Free-Needs Analysis) and then deliver a building management service tailored to those requirements. We highly recommend getting in touch to see how we can help you.
Home automation is leading the way in smart technology. The endless possibilities of home automation are growing and adapting all the time. Every system can be designed to be unique to your home and requirements.

We can customise your system to incorporate your family crest, personal imagery or business theme and logo to create a recognised standardisation across the board, creating the perfect look. Alternatively, we offer a number of design orientated themes for aesthetic purposes, either for discretion or to make a visually-stunning feature in your premises.
In order to fully meet your expectations, we can design and programme with a modular approach so that developing, changing and updating your system in the future is simple and cost effective.
Control your environment. Complete comfort. Cost and Energy efficient systems.
Automated climate control systems are an essential component in building automation. Most buildings feature some form of temperature or climate control, but the ability to control and monitor climate with an integrated system as an option not only saves on energy bills, but also offers you complete control and flexibility over your building’s climate and other technologies. So, whether or not you are in the vicinity, you have the capability to control, change and monitor things via a wireless device. We can programme the system to switch off/on either at specific predetermined times or upon activation by sensors (i.e. occupancy times). With GPS, the system can detect when you are a specified distance away from arriving at the venue at which point it will bump your system so that you arrive to your ideal specified climate. Our range of sensors for temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors help our system to monitor the environment and provide you with live readings. A log of the system data is generated which can be set to communicate directly with R&W headquarters to alert us to any potential issues with your system. This allows us to fix/resolve any errors before they are noticed by you. (See also Control Systems and Energy Management).
We offer the latest in HVAC systems designed to provide you with total comfort using the best of internal environment technologies. There is a great deal of science behind these intelligent systems which provide you with your ideal temperature whilst also continually delivering clean and purified air.
We can design a system that operates throughout your building; focusing on air circulation within the building, transfer of air from inside to outside and vice versa using both natural air circulatory and also mechanical or ‘forced’ systems. We appreciate that designs must. Our designs are discreet, unobtrusive and also almost inaudible – which with clever positioning and set-up we can reduce to a minimum. Combined with the fact that our system designs generate very low running costs making this a very efficient system, our latest air management systems could be just want your venue needs. Get in touch for a Free-Needs Analysis to discuss how R&W can design and fit the perfect system for your venue
It is not just the latest in technologies that we can integrate; we can take a standard, already installed heating system (regardless of its shape, size or whether it’s electric, gas, under-floor or combination etc.) and with some clever programming and installation, we can transform the existing system into a fully-automated one. This offers you control over the temperature in your building via any wireless device that is linked to our safe control network. This system is not only user-friendly, but is also supported by lower energy usage, lower running costs and higher efficiency.
R&W’s ability to provide services in Sound, Lighting, AV, Networking, Security, Control Systems and Climate Control across a range of sectors makes us the ideal company when it comes to integrated energy management systems. We understand the technologies in each of these areas which together with our experts in energy management systems, allows us to design a system that monitors every device within a system across an entire building. The benefits are unprecedented when it comes to saving time and money. Our systems allow you to monitor energy consumption and manage and schedule automated control of the building to suit your specific requirements, also allowing total user functionality for continued monitoring and changes. Our systems collect data including error logs to help with identifying problems, and usage data to see whether rooms are being used effectively and efficiently.
Our systems are built with movement and light sensors. These allow for energy saving and intelligent user support.
Building administrators and managers can remotely login to any room, venue or building to access real-time information at anytime. Also, incorporating our encrypted VPN technologies creates a safe-working environment for any user whether in or out of the building.
We believe that the key to green sustainable energy management is collaborative technologies that reside under a single control system. This is a very exciting time for savings in energy usage and running costs; why not contact us to see how R&W can help you to create your intelligent building management system?
