Capturing projects for higher education across the UK.
OUR time-lapse camera systems and site monitoring services continue to be utilised by educational institutions.
We recently finished a dual-camera system job for South Essex College, capturing the construction of their new Thurrock campus.
Two of our camera systems snapped away for almost two years, capturing over 63,000 images on behalf of the college. Our systems were in place to cover everything, from the demolition of former buildings and a car park, right through to the new term starting in September 2014.
Throughout the duration of the build South Essex College staff were able to view progress through our online viewing portal – iRis.
And the final edit we produced has been viewed almost 3,000 times on the South Essex College website. You can watch the time-lapse below:
The campus cost £45 million to construct and was completed by Skanska.
It is just one of a number of high profile projects we have captured across the country for education establishments.
Nick Paladina, Bursar at St Clare’s College, Oxford, was thrilled with the video we produced of the new Pamela Morris building. He said: “Excellent personal service and attention to detail have resulted in a film that is not only great for the archive but will be a very helpful marketing tool.”
We also have a camera system in the city capturing at Oxford University.
The Heathland Whitefriars Federation is set to open a new school in September 2015, which is yet another project we are monitoring. The demolition of the old buildings in Harrow is now done and the images we have captured during that process will become part of a fully post-produced edit when construction is also completed.
One of our most popular time-lapse videos was captured in the Outer Hebrides, documenting the construction of the new Nicholson Institute school building in Stornoway.
Our remote site monitoring systems are continually being utilised by higher education institutions and we thoroughly enjoy capturing new school facilities being constructed.
