Bar Aspen

SI Sound and Light were responsible for electrical, communications and controls contracting, Sound and Lighting design and installation, Audio Visual design and installation and a full custom control platform allowing scheduling of all building systems including dynamic advertising content served to the thirty eight LCD screens located around the venue.

The custom industrial screens used in the venue were specified to fit in walls, windows and booths allowing customers to always be in touch with the video content. Screens available in a host of sizes from 10.4 up to 42 inches with custom surrounds in any material imaginable. The options are endless including waterproof, internal and external units. Light fittings used throughout the venue are the most cutting edge in design and efficiency. LED units are used extensively with specialist power supply units giving a hugely increased lifespan over traditional lighting. S I Sound and Light has worked together with Mode Lighting for many years. Now with Evolution S I can bring together building control into a single box solution. The requirements for Aspen pushed the boat out with the control required to deal with audiovisual scheduling, ventilation, music scheduling and all the normal power saving and lighting controls.

The custom audio visual system allows display of live feed SKY television and extreme sports videos provided by the venue users themselves and by commercial advertisers paying for display space. The system allows for continuous updates without the attendance of a specialist engineer. The system is energy and product efficient by controlling the operational time of costly technical units and hence leading to a minimal servicing and replacement cost.

Swanston Golf Club – Edinburgh


The Swanston golf Course is to be featured in the Bunkered magazine ryder cup edition. The club has been visited by club owners throughout Scotland keen to re-create a bit of the Swanston formula in there own re-developments.

The current course at Swanston is an 18 hole 5004 yard par 66 course located at the foothills of the Pentlands entirely within the Edinburgh City boundary, but 5 miles due south of the city centre. It commands spectacular views to the north across Edinburgh and is a great place for golf, but also somewhere to relax in the countryside and enjoy the views.



In 2007 Swanstons aging clubhouse was replaced with a purpose built state of the art new building with great facilities for golfing, dining and entertainments.



SI Sound and Light were responsible Sound and Lighting design and installation, Audio Visual design and installation and system controls allowing distribution of video and audio to the independant parts of the new clubhouse complex.
