More world class creative design and build services than anyone else

Project Award: Tamworth Castle

10 May 2018

Paragon Creative are excited to announce our appointment as design and fit-out contractor for the upcoming Battle and Tribute gallery at Tamworth Castle. Opening in Autumn 2019, this new interactive gallery will tell the emerging story of Tamworth’s rich Anglo-Saxon history including the display of rare treasures from the Staffordshire Hoard. The gallery, supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, will explore themes of battle, tribute and town life in Anglo-Saxon Tamworth using hands-on interactive exhibits, immersive interpretation experiences, and cutting-edge audio-visual technology. Paragon Creative look forward to working with Tamworth Castle to develop this fun and family-friendly gallery in its unique historical setting.

STAFF FOCUS: Tim DeCoste, Interactives Workshop Manager

Q: Name?
A: Tim DeCoste but they call me moose now there’s four Tims.

Q: What and where did you study?
A: Seaquam secondary school in my motherland of Canada. University didn’t seem challenging enough so I went to major in waterparks abroad.

Q: How long have you worked at Paragon Creative?
A: 3 years this month.

Q: What development / training have you undertaken since joining the team?
A: IOSH managing safely and the ever-important manual handling and fire warden training. And of course the sage mentoring of Jon Myers (Operations Director) and Chris Nuttall (Technical Director).

Q: Favourite Project to work on and why?
A: Dig It Dubai Springs. It was an achievable project that has resulted in a great success which is always a boost knowing the work our department put in to it, I’m sure others did OK as well. I also got to be involved in the installation, something I don’t often get to be a part of, luckily I still have my old work boots so I almost blended in seamlessly if not for my eloquent speaking and perfect hair.

Q: What do you like about working at Paragon?
A: Everyday poses a new challenge. It’s also close to home so that’s nice.

Q: Dream project to work on?
A: If we could do something ice hockey or maple syrup based I’d be very much in my comfort zone.

Q: What does your department do?
A: Builds big toys!
