Sapphire Sound Shines in Designing High-Tech Campus for Canada's Largest Church
Updated: May 12
Centre Street Church (CSC) is the largest church in Canada, with a presence in five campuses, including the central campus, Airdrie campus, Bearspaw campus, South campus, and Bridgeland campus. For over a decade, Sapphire Sound has partnered with CSC, providing major upgrades to all of their campuses. Recently, CSC was facing a challenge as their Bearspaw campus was growing rapidly and needed a permanent home, rather than continuing to rent their existing space.
Sapphire Sound stepped up to the challenge, designing, supplying, and installing all the necessary equipment for CSC's new location. This included an 850-seat sanctuary, children's classrooms, a divisible gym/multipurpose space, event spaces in upper and lower foyers, a play structure, and a chapel. To make sure the new campus had the best possible equipment, Sapphire Sound installed an L'acoustics speaker system, Chroma-Q Inspire XT house lights, Panasonic laser projection on a 40' wide screen, Chauvet Ovation stage lighting, Extron control system, and Q-Sys DSP.
One major requirement was the ability to operate spaces for basic events with technicians. Sapphire Sound was up to the task, and added Extron control systems and IP video endpoints. This allows users to control basic AV needs from custom-designed touch panels. Sapphire Sound's commitment to quality was evident in their work for CSC's new campus, which features cutting-edge technology, top-of-the-line equipment, and an expertly designed sound system.
The Bearspaw campus is now up and running, thanks to their collaboration with Sapphire Sound. CSC's new location has everything they need to host large-scale events and provide immersive and exciting audiovisual experiences. Sapphire Sound's work has helped ensure that CSC can continue to grow and thrive, providing a welcoming environment for its members and the surrounding community.
