Miami-based Mavco announces it has been awarded contracts for two key South Florida construction projects.

At Wynmoor Theater in Coconut Creek, Florida, Mavco is engineering, supplying, and installing the lighting, sound, and cinema systems for the refurbishment of the 900-seat venue. The Wynmoor Theater offers both dramatic and musical productions and is also used for lectures and courses in opera and music of all types as well as current events. This comprehensive refurbishment, under the project management of Mavco's Nick Gibson, is due for completion at the end of September. The project gives the theater a completely new sound system, including a custom 32-channel Soundcraft K3 theater mixing console, Peavey DSP audio processing and control systems, Meyer Sound self-powered loudspeakers, and microphones from Shure and Audio Technica. Cinema speakers are being supplied by JBL.

Lighting control is supplied in the main by ETC, with both Sensor and Unison dimming for stage lighting and house lighting respectively; an Insight 3 control console, with offline editor software; Unison Control for the house lighting and more than 50 Source Fours; together with Altman floodlights and six-cell ground cycs and Martin 575W RoboScans.

The new $80 million Palm Beach Country Convention Center is due to open in fall 2003. Mavco has been chosen to provide detailed design, supply, and installation services for complete sound reinforcement systems, distributed television network, assistive listening systems, intercom, video conferencing facilities, and integrated control systems for the 100,000-sq.-ft. main exhibition hall, the ballroom, and 19 meeting rooms.

Mavco specializes in cruise ship installations but also has a reputation for land-based work. Other current projects include supplying a new sound system in the Commission Chambers for the City of Miami and a new public address and paging system for the USDA Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service at Miami Airport.
