The second installment of The Sebastian’s Action Trust, having gone through months of planning layouts, managing contractors, securing funding and all the other hard work which goes on behind the scenes when undertaking a major refurbishment, we are happy to be able to share the news that we are very close to completing phase one of our newest development – The Woodlands in Crowthorne.
The Woodlands which includes yet another Knektd donated home cinema for the families of the Sebastians Action Trust. Having already completed a complete rebuild of a room in their centre The Bluebells, Knektd we only happy to help when Jane Gates approached us to do it again!
With an empty room & a listed building it did make it a lot easier this time round, thanks to help from our suppliers & friends we were able to provide a 5.1 surround sound cinema. The system included a 110” fixed screen, Apple TV & games consoles all controlled using a Crestron custom interface on a in-wall Touch Screen, complete with comprehensive lighting to be able to allow for a fully immersive cinematic experience, all custom designed joinery to blend in with the decor. and of course many other pieces of equipment to allow everything to work smoothly.
For both installs we visited the centre and having been shown around, the next step was to ensure we could get hold of the right equipment and between Ian and myself, we were lucky enough to be inundated with offers from our supplier friends. We’ve been truly touched by the amount of people who have come forward to donate their time, products and expertise. This project really reminded me of what is important in life and when everyone pulls together for a good cause, amazing things really can be achieved! I’m incredibly proud of the end results and I’m so pleased we’ve been able to create a fun and interactive room for the children and their families at both The Bluebells and The Woodlands. The people of Sebastain Action Trust have created such two amazing centres and made it so easy for us to get involved and work with them on both projects. We hope the Cinemas provides many hours of entertainment for those who visit.
