One of Paragon's biggest challenges on this project involved designing, fabricating, and installing a custom-raised flooring system on over 6,000 square feet of stage space. More than 300 custom 6” modular framing decks were used to elevate the performance surface, enhancing the audience's viewing experience. Open channels in the framing, in both the x and y axes, allowed for limitless configuration of power and low-voltage cabling through floor pockets with movable stage decks. The flooring was not only interchangeable in location but also featured a custom finish on both sides, with one side presenting the normal Sunday look and the flip side showcasing a production look. Custom stage extensions were constructed to accommodate sub-placements.
The stage-facing cover was designed and built to be modular, allowing for removal during performances. It was constructed with an acoustically transparent fabric front and incorporated the same finishes and built-in, LED accents to seamlessly integrate with the overall stage and sanctuary aesthetics.
Paragon also designed and built over 50 custom scenic columns that were wedge shaped with integrated RGB, LED lighting accents. These were placed along the back wall of the stage, extending out into the house and enveloping the audience in the experience. Extensive acoustical work was also provided and installed throughout the audience space.
