EPIC: Next Phase Now Live

We are incredibly proud to announce that the next phase of the award-winning EPIC induction, which we created and run on behalf of Tideway, is now live.

In March, we launched a brand new storyline (to reflect the next phase of the Tideway project) for Tideway employees and contractors, as well as completing a refit of the training space with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment. The new technology has never been used before in this type of training environment and it will enhance the immersive experience and maximise participant engagement.

Take a look at what went on…

ATT have really helped us in shaping the scenario and understanding how we would get what we wanted out of it whilst utilising the new technology. They did a great job in having the centre closed for only a very short time.

Steve Hails, Director of Health, Safety & Wellbeing at Tideway was at the launch to give the Senior Leadership Presentation to Tideway employees. Steve told us:

“The upgrade was important for a number of reasons. It was always the intention that the scenario we used would evolve over the course of the programme, and it made absolute sense that we improve the technology.”

“There was a real investment in the hardware; the resilience of that hardware and its flexibility allows us to deploy multiple scenarios depending on where we go with the programme. It also gives us a much longer future for the EPIC centre itself.”

Using our extensive network within the entertainment and presentation industries, we were able to bring three leading creative organisations to Tideway for the refit: White Light, d3 Technologies and Scott Fleary.

White Light’s projects stretch from London across the globe and include Christmas at Kew, Rag’n‘Bone man UK Tour and Project Pogba for Adidas. They supply high-tech equipment to large-scale West End and touring theatre productions like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

White Light were pivotal in our technical concept design and they project-managed the installation on our behalf.

Scott Fleary design and build specialist theatre, TV and media sets for West End and RNT productions, and Sky Television. They are currently designing and installing the entire newsroom floor for the new Bloomberg Building in Bank, City of London. Scott Fleary are responsible for our 24-metre curved projection screen, custom-made for the Central Zone of EPIC.

d3 Technologies have provided us with their elite super-processor, the world’s first integrated video production suite. Based around a real-time 3D stage simulator, it is the single solution needed to design, present, communicate, sequence and playback our show.

The new technology will improve the immersive experience. We can combine image manipulation, audio mis-direction and live drama, and pull the audience focus to any point in the room, enhancing reality and maximising engagement. It’s a unique, dynamic and thought-provoking environment.
