News Time-lapse from Gloucester’s new £7.5m transport hub features on BBC News

26 October 2018 Kate

OUR time-lapse video features as part of an extensive publicity campaign marking a significant milestone of Gloucester’s Kings Quarter regeneration project.

Captured on behalf of Kier and Gloucester City Council, the final edit debuted during Wednesday’s Point West programme on BBC One, shedding light on how the new state-of-the-art transport hub was constructed.

The time-lapse is also set to feature prominently throughout today’s opening ceremony at the bus station – marking competition of phase one of the city’s major regeneration works – ahead of it entering operation on Sunday 28 October 2018.

From November last year we worked closely with longstanding client Kier, providing continuous time-lapse capture – even during periods of severe snowfall – from the start of the £7.5m project through to its completion just under a year later.

Our industry-leading control capabilities allow us to closely monitoring progress on site and adjust capture settings accordingly. Examples of this include rapidly capturing during key construction milestones, such as erection of steelwork and the installation of the iconic aerofoil roof.

This enabled our team of highly skilled editors to produce a final time-lapse video fit for both live broadcast and use at events in the run-up to the bus station’s opening.

Construction of this brand new transport hub signals the start of the Kings Quarter regeneration – a multi-million pound scheme led by Gloucester City Council to revamp city centre.

It is also the latest in a long line of infrastructure projects we have worked on. Others include:

  • Another bus station development, in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, for Stoke-on-Trent City Council and VINCI Construction UK
  • The Tipner Park & Ride facility in Portsmouth, on behalf of Portsmouth City Council and Osborne
  • Time-lapse of construction works at Moorgate Station for Crossrail

Gloucester bus station opens to the public this weekend, following today’s opening ceremony.

We look forward to seeing the next stages of the Kings Quarter regeneration, as well as our continued work with Kier.
