Center Parcs commissioned MVS Audio Visual to install a large projection solution into the Sports Café restaurant at the brand new holiday village, Woburn Forest.
Nestled in a 362 acre forest, the new Center Parcs village has an extensive range of indoor and outdoor sports and leisure activities as well as restaurants and a state-of-the-art Aqua Sana Spa. And with its Subtropical Swimming Paradise heated to 29.5°C, it’s summer all year round.
Center Parcs operates five holiday Villages in the UK. Each is set in a forest environment, providing high quality holiday accommodation in 625 fully equipped Lodges, 75 hotel rooms and six luxurious Spa Suites.
With Center Parcs’ Woburn Forest opening to short break guests just before the 2014 World Cup, the projection solution needed to be in place in time for the big games to be shown. Centre Parcs wanted a 12-metre diagonal image projected onto the wall of the Sports Café which would then be used for other major sporting events and televised events of interest.
The sports hall has considerable ambient light, so the projector needed to be bright.
It also needed to be installed high up (around 10 metres high), so reliability and minimising maintenance were key considerations. To gain access, MVS Audio Visual had to liaise with multiple contractors who were completing works on site.
