VERONA – Epic’s next expansion will create a Wizards Academy Campus

    Epic Systems Corp. employees may feel as though they’re headed to class at Oxford University in England or the fictional Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter novels if they work at the next set of buildings the Verona electronic health records company wants to build.

    Plans for Epic’s fourth campus, the Wizards Academy Campus, are scheduled for a conditional-use permit vote by the Verona Plan Commission Monday and the Verona City Council on Nov. 11.

    The buildings’ exteriors — some with steeples and castle-like notched parapets — are meant to resemble the “very traditional” look of classroom buildings at older university campuses in the U.S. and “university cities in England such as Cambridge and Oxford.”

    Each building will hold 300 to 350 offices, for a total of 1,580 offices. Three of the five buildings will sit on top of a 1,500-space underground parking ramp, approved in May.

    Epic’s three sets of themed office buildings — including the Farm Campus completed this past spring — comprise 12 structures with 4,500 offices. But the company, which traditionally houses one employee per office, is up to 6,800 employees and continues to grow.

    And plans for Campus 5, the Authors Campus, already are in the works for Epic, which had $1.5 billion in revenues in 2012.
