Prestonwood Baptist Church is a multi-site megachurch with its main campus in Plano, TX, and a second campus in Prosper, TX. Prestonwood is one of the largest churches in America, with a membership of over 43,000 people. The Plano campus covers an area of 140 acres and includes a 7,000-seat worship center, a 550-seat chapel, a Pre-K through 12th grade school (including a football stadium, a baseball field, and a field house for basketball and volleyball), a fitness center with outdoor sports fields, a café, a library, and a bookstore. In addition, they have their own dedicated 700-seat Youth Facility that was built in 2004.
Prestonwood reached out to Paragon 360 in January of 2018 for the expansive renovation of the Youth Facility. While onsite for the Youth Facility renovation, Prestonwood approached Paragon 360 about the acoustical issues they were encountering in their Faith Chapel. With seating for 550 people, Faith Chapel is designed to reflect a feeling of casual elegance conducive to creating a comfortable worship atmosphere. Although built in the 21st century, the traditional architecture harkens back to an earlier era, with stained glass windows, an arched barrel ceiling, and a reverberation time that is well-suited for piano and orchestral music, but highly detrimental to speech intelligibility.
