2021 TAIT Yearbook

Delivering a project of this complexity, constrained by a short manufacture and installation time-window, demanded our UK teams’ combined expertise. Teams in Haverhill and Neasden, alongside mainland-European colleagues, successfully delivered and commissioned within six months, despite COVID’s ever-changing restrictions and supply chain delays. The results were increased show production efficiency, reliability, and additional creative options for spectacular modern shows, ready for further enhancements with iQ.

During the historically listed building’s renovation, TAIT upgraded controls with new safety features, enhancing performance capabilities. Rather than complete removal and replacement of old equipment – recognising many elements with plenty of remaining life – TAIT proposed a more sustainable scope: an upgrade to deploy networked safety technology, whilst provisioning a smooth future update path to iQ deployment, which the theater is adopting.
