Since 2007, Time-Lapse Systems have provided custom ultra-high definition time-lapse and site monitoring solutions on over 500 projects in London.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with a wide range of prestigious clients, from Wimbledon and the Royal Albert Hall to numerous high-end developers, such as Mace, Berkeley Group and Lodha Group, constructing skyline worthy skyscrapers and other major developments in central London. Our client base and range of projects is broad and or our experienced team have been able to provide custom solutions to an array of complex challenges.


Our London based time-lapse and site monitoring work has taken us to some of the capital’s most exclusive locations. We’ve installed time-lapse systems across the city including Westminster, Kensington, the Square Mile, Leicester Square, Piccadilly, Westminster, Oxford Street, Battersea, Mayfair and more. We’ve worked our way around Greater London too, with time-lapse captures in Harrow, Hammersmith, Barking, Mile End and further afield.


Our London based work has involved us in a whole spectrum of diverse projects. We have extensive experience covering everything from skyscrapers through to large-scale office, residential, mixed use, fit-outs and retail builds, as well as smaller bespoke construction and one-off housing projects. Our London construction client base is wide and varied, from large developers such as the Berkeley Group and Cadogan delivering luxury apartments and penthouses, to architects designing homes and hotels, to local authorities building houses, schools, accommodation and hospitals.



As the capital skyline is constantly evolving, we’ve produced high quality time-lapse photography for London’s busy demolition industries in equal measure. Due to the city’s limited space, if a new development is being constructed it is normally preceded by another buildings’ demolition. So many construction projects have been preceded by capture of demolition in locations such as The Strand (for Berkely Group’s 190 The Strand), Westminster (For St. Martins).

So, for example we have worked to capture major demolition projects such as the clearance of the old print works at Wapping through to significant portions of Nine Elms. We have also been extensively involved in the Phase 1 enabling works for HS2 and captured demolition and ground works on the Euston approaches and at Old Oak Common.


We not only cover external works but also internal projects too. We have time-lapsed a broad range of interior works, including retail & office fit-outs, warehouse developments for large corporations and household names, as well as specific branch improvements for pharmaceutical chains and multinational businesses. Examples include work for Luis Vuitton, Three, The Royal Albert Hall, Vision Express, Legoland and The Postal Museum to name but some.

The bespoke nature of our time-lapse solutions gives us the freedom and capability to work in all kinds of indoor and outdoor environments, while delivering micro-managed industry-leading results for every project.


We also specialise in time-lapse for Greater London’s infrastructure, road, rail and bridge projects. We’ve numerous clients in the transport sector. We provide sustained high-quality time-lapse capture for long-term rail projects such as HS2, documenting their high-speed rail link currently under construction.

We also provide time-lapse capture for Crossrail, documenting the extensive work on the Queen Elizabeth new tube line. Our clients use time-lapse photography as an effective method to assist with the communication and publicity surrounding such important public sector developments.


We also work extensively for logistic and distribution companies, documenting warehouse builds through time-lapse photography, including the capture of warehouse fit-outs for world renowned clients, such as Amazon and XPO Logistics. This is because time-lapse is ideal for tracking methodical and consistent processes, such as the installation of warehouse racking and machinery. By installing our camera systems with optimal view, images regularly record each incremental phase of activity to reflect the complexities of works undertaken in such a focused environment.


We have several Greater London clients within the energy and utilities industries using time-lapse in a variety of ways, from capturing plant builds to day to day developments. The way that energy and electricity is provided to London is changing and we’ve captured the builds of a range of power plants, including the more ecological bio-mass plants and waste to energy plants. These include major works at Crossness, STW linked the major upgrade of London’s water treatment infrastructure.

Power, gas, waste management and water industries in the capital are key to keeping London functioning. Engineers and plant managers can remotely oversee that these systems are working smoothly and efficiently by using the time-lapse site-monitoring we provide.


London is famous for its world class sports, entertainment and leisure events. Our time-lapse camera systems have been installed at some of the best venues in London, from Wimbledon to the Emirates Stadium to the Royal Albert Hall. We’ve captured builds, long capture time-lapse and one-off special events at venues such as, Horse Guards Parade. Clients utilise the time-lapse captures and videos to promote their work across social media platforms and to gain media coverage, not only in Britain but around the world.

The history, culture and heritage of London makes it one of the most important cities in the world. Time-Lapse Systems have had the privilege of documenting the renovation, refurbishment and extensions of historically important buildings. We’ve used our engineers’ expertise to ensure time-lapse solutions have gained maximum capture without any impact on prestigious historical buildings such as when capturing from Battersea Power Station, the Grade I listed Royal Albert Hall and St Clement Danes Church on The Strand.
