Paragon 360™ completed a two-year new construction project for Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA, in the summer of 2015. Sherwood constructed a new $14 million dollar, 126,000 square foot children and youth building that included 10 different spaces where AVL systems would be present. The new, two level facility consisted of renovations to an existing Fellowship Hall. “Wee Worship” and “Kids Rock” were both children style theatrical spaces. The youth theatre is a full blown worship space with live band capability and the latest
audio, video and lighting support. Also included were cafés, a meeting room, 5th grade space, conference rooms and common space hallways and lobbies.
Paragon 360™ was contracted in 2012 for the project to provide design-build services inclusive of audio, video, lighting, rigging and staging systems for the project in addition to distributed audio and digital signage systems in common space areas.
The technical systems designed and installed by Paragon 360™ included complete audio, video and lighting systems in multiple spaces that consisted of several Yamaha and Soundcraft consoles, EV speaker systems, Vivitek projectors, Samsung displays, ETC and Chauvet lighting units with High End Systems lighting control consoles. Architectural lighting control systems were included throughout all spaces and LED house-lighting was provided in 6 separate spaces. The distributed audio systems included over 70 ceiling speakers and the facility-wide digital signage system included 12 networked displays. Paragon also provided its signature modular staging system for the youth area.
