Interactive Engineering

Innovative, safe and durable

We have produced 1000's of interactive displays for many well-known museums and visitor centres. Our inventive interactives invite visitors to look, touch, twist, pull, turn, pump, jump and learn. They are designed to be robust, tough and reliable.

Our in-house team ensure consistency of design, quality, fit and finish. The same build team will also be responsible for install and commissioning to make sure there is continuity throughout the project.

We always make sure the client team, who will be operating the interactive areas have a good understanding of the technical specifics and maintenance requirements of the displays. We provide training, detailed O&M manuals and a 12 month warranty.

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!
