We do our own design work, in-house, increasing accountability. We don't not relying on manufacturers to do it for us.


We are gear agnostic. With almost 400 manufacturers represented we find the “right” solution at the right price point.  Brand loyalty is not always in the favor of our clients.  


Our focus is not gear – it’s on creating memorable, transformative, engaging, experiences that enable connection, fellowship, and worship. We're not selling gear - we're selling solutions. 


We use ETCP certified riggers. If you are not sure what that means, you probably need to consider hiring Paragon 360. There is a tremendous risk and liability associated with proper rigging of todays AVL technology in church spaces that were often times not designed for it. Our team literally helped write the ETCP standard testing in 2004.


First-In-Class team. Simply put, there is not another AVL integration firm that has the wide breath of design expertise on hand that Paragon 360 carries specifically for the church market.


Paragon 360 offers an unmatched service offering that includes not only audio, video, lighting, and certified rigging systems but also creative acoustical design solutions, interior design, in-house custom fabrication, theming and seating. This limits the amount of contractors it takes to make a project happen, increases accountability and improves coordination. 


We do the GC work ourselves. That’s right – we do the General Construction work ourselves with our very own Xperience Construction.  This would include electrical, structural, HVAC, framing, painting, demolition, plumbing and more.  We do ground up construction and interior renovations.  We produce easier projects with less change orders.  This redefines turn-key and allows us to provide the level of accountability your congregation deserves.

Fabrication of our signature, modular, scenic, staging and architectural elements are dramatically changing the way construction and renovation projects come together. This is at the heart of our value proposition. As we move from jobsite field construction to offsite manufacturing and field assembly, we’re creating more effective and efficient solutions that reduce costs, maximizes material and labor resources, and greatly expedites project delivery. The process where architectural infill treatments are manufactured in a controlled environment and then transported to the jobsite as a modular component saves our client significant time and money. Paragon has perfected this process on hundreds of projects over the last 24 years. It has become an absolute game changer for the church industry.

Due to the many large-scale, multi-million-dollar projects Paragon has completed, many assume that we must be expensive. Those large-scale projects are expensive because of their size, scale and complexity. In addition, many of those clients often desire higher-end equipment that has a higher end cost.


Ironically, when it comes to full scope sanctuary renovation or new construction projects, Paragon has developed the most cost-effective, design-build model available in the marketplace. For Anthony Kansas Christian Church, we flipped a 250-seat sanctuary in seven days for less than $200,000 that was priced at over $300,000 with local architect, general contractor, and AV support. That’s the opposite of expensive. With Paragon’s model, our clients save significant time and money with increased accountability. Its not for everyone - just those who want to save time and money.

YES!


Newsflash:  Paragon does between 25-40 projects a year that are less than $200,000 not including individual equipment sales. In fact, our unique turnkey, design-build model offers as much or more value to the small church as it does the larger church. The large institutions typically have the funding and resources to accomplish their needs, but many smaller churches risk fading away if they don't take action. Many of the smaller churches cannot afford an expensive renovation of their space using typical construction methods involving multiple contractors, architects, designers, integration companies and the downtime associated with a 6–8-month project. Paragon’s design-build, turnkey model saves significant time and money making transformative renovations possible - even for the small church.

If you are just looking to buy a new audio console for instance - Yes we can participate in that as competitively as anyone. 


If you are looking however, for Paragon to just throw in a bid for a renovation project - we are probably not the right choice.  First of all, in order to solicitate apples to apples bidding we would have to have a bid package that includes fully designed systems so that everyone is bidding off an exact gear list and very specific parameters, drawings and specifications.  Otherwise, you are not comparing apples to apples.  We are also going to want to meet with you and have extensive conversations about goals, desires, and objectives or we will miss critical information in that bidding that would later result in change orders. 


However, we would caution you against making selections based off of price.  At least 3-5 times a year, we are in discussion with churches about replacing AVL systems that are not even 5 years old because they did not get it right the first time.  If you have to buy these systems twice in five years- it's not going to matter that you saved 10% the first time by going with the lessor number.  Use good stewardship - Take the time and do it right and do it once.

We have done it both ways.  We have done extensive renovations in 7,000 seat worship spaces over 6-10 weeks without missing or having to relocate a single Sunday service. We have also done many renovations where the work required relocation.  It really depends on the scope of the renovation work itself and some answers to questions we would ask in a needs assessment visit.  Many times it can be done either way.  As a general rule of thumb, it will take longer and cost more to stay in the room during a renovation than it does if you were to relocate.  Again, this is a conversation we can have during a needs assessment interview, but we have done it both ways, successfully, many times. If you do have to relocate however, Paragon's turnkey, design-build model typically expedites the timelines and reduces the amount of down time.

Yes - Its the only way we can guarantee success.  The only way we (or anyone for that matter) can truly guarantee their work and take accountability for the project is to be responsible for the design and implementation of that work. If it is easy for any party to push the blame off to other contractors, designers, installers and so on...they absolutely will. Our desire is to transfer the burdens of the project from you to us, limit the excuses and take full responsibility ensuring your success. We do this by working in a design-build fashion. We have found that not only does it save our clients (and us) money but it also expedites the process, improves the coordination and results in less change orders. If you have a chance at On-time, On-budget with true accountability -  It's going to be a design build project.
