Industry: BioScience & Pharma

We asked Illumina, why choose TagEvac®?

  • Simple and easy to understand
  • Demonstrates best practice
  • Provides clarification

Illumina is a global leader in genomics – an industry at the intersection of biology and technology. At the most fundamental level, Illumina enables its customers to read and understand genetic variations. They strive to make solutions increasingly simple, more accessible and always reliable. As a result, discoveries that were unimaginable even a few years ago are now becoming routine and are making a way into patient treatment.

Due to the nature of their work Illumina’s strategy for evacuation is complex due to the controlled departmentalisation of their business. Trusted to analyse their new flagship building at Granta Park in Cambridge, TagEvac® were invited to provide zone planning that would work throughout their site. This involved ensuring the various physical restrictions within the building when evacuating in a worst-case event were managed effectively. The system has proved its effectiveness during unplanned alarm activation during phased handover stages to full occupation.

Aware that our systems have the flexibility and scale to work within complex buildings our attention to detail has simplified their Emergency Management process. This gives clear and useable information to the Emergency Services and Incident controllers in real time.

Although Illumina’s work touches the very boundaries of technology, they understand and value a low-tech solution that manages their people. An evacuation process that provides simplicity and clarity throughout. The result: simpler training and better evaluation after each evacuation.

TagEvac gives us a best-practice solution to sweep and clear our building. It’s simple and easy to understand enabling a quick and safe evacuation. The training has engaged our Fire Marshals, so they are confident of their actions in an emergency
