World Rugby Museum

Twickenham

Brief/Challenges

There is nowhere in England more important to rugby union than Twickenham Stadium, which is the home to England Rugby and the World Rugby Museum. This is the ultimate experience for the rugby enthusiast. The museum gives a unique insight into this magnificent sport. 

People of all ages and nationalities can follow the history of the game from its origins in Rugby School to the present day, can discover why people love rugby from the grassroots game to the elite sport, and get the stories behind some of the greatest players, matches and tries – with a little humour thrown in. Twickenham stadium is the fifth largest sports stadium in Europe and the largest rugby venue in the world. 

Commission

Paragon Creative was awarded the contract to undertake the design development of the new galleries; strip out, build and fit out the galleries, and act as principle contractor on site over the three-week refurbishment. We built and installed set works, interactives, multiple AV shows, props, object mounts, display lighting and flooring. 

Highlights of the refurbished museum now include:

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!
