Epic Deep Space Auditorium, Verona, Wisconsin, USA.

Epic Deep Space is an award-winning 1.2-million-square-foot underground auditorium for Epic Systems Corporation. The 11,400-seat auditorium is excavated into a hillside and is covered by an eight-acre green roof with vertical glazing for daylight. The column-free roof is supported by 25-foot-deep trusses spanning 275 feet.

The auditorium features an 800-foot-long wall that incorporates sections of glass within large stone masses. A series of steel curtain wall elements span openings within and between the sculptural blue stone masonry forms.

Daver Steels supplied over 630 compression strut members 50mm diameter and 2.4m long which support the glass facade working in partnership with our agent Ronstan.

All components were polyester powder coated to match the steel frame work.
