SEE’s contract with 20th Century Fox was signed in August 1998 with the Grand Opening scheduled for December 15, 1998 in London, England.
Design commenced immediately with all hands on deck in Los Angeles! ETI worked closely with the fabrication company to design and coordinate the build so that the entire exhibit could be shipped on November 1st. The biggest challenge was designing a very elaborate and complex touring exhibit that included a truly immersive “Disaster Theater.” Criteria for the design and build included: easy set up & dismantle; easy maintenance and with a minimum of labor and cost. All time tables and budgets were met and the ship sailed on November 1st to high praise in London, Dusseldorf and Berlin before returning to the United States.
