News Interior Fit-Out Projects

9 May 2024 Holly Eckersley

We have time-lapsed a great deal of interior fit-out projects and we understand how shop design and refurbishment is incredibly important to the customer experience. The harmonious aesthetic design of a shop must be cohesive with its own brand values whilst being eye catching to attract custom. At Time-Lapse Systems we have captured a number of commercial fit-outs and we have worked with a number of commercial interior specialists and interior designers to document the full fit-out of commercial and residential spaces. Our work has helped our clients with marketing and communications so that they can show interested parties the nuances of the design process.

Our time-lapse and drone services are perfect for capturing a previously derelict or unused site showing its transformation. The majority of our clients use our services to document long-term outdoor projects, however we have seen a rise in clients who require our services to document shop fit-outs, warehouse construction, office floor and event projects. Time-lapse can be used for a range of marketing and communication purposes, enabling our clients to give interested parties a live view of a site from anywhere in the world. Many of our property developer and contractor clients use our fully post-produced videos in their sales packages giving customers a sense of the contextual journey of a project and a demonstrable record of the skill and labour of their building teams. Furthermore, our site-monitoring imagery is incredibly useful as it can be accessed remotely and can help clients clearly reflect on time-line projections and the current progress on-site. Having site-monitoring imagery can help our clients make better strategic decisions based on the live images of their projects which can in-turn help them plan their workflow. At Time-Lapse Systems we only use the very best pro DSLR cameras and our systems have been fully developed in-house which are fully customisable for our clients’ needs. In this article we reflect on some of the wonderful interior fit-out projects we have captured which show the incredible spaces which our clients have created.

Lakeland Interior Fit-Out Time-Lapse

We captured the full interior fit-out of Lakeland‘s flagship store in Windermere. Taking six months to complete this incredible homeware store sells the finest baking, laundry and cleaning products and welcomes over half a million shoppers per year. Capturing vast improvements, that centre on the customer experience, this store has a stunning modern and bright interior and its very own cafe. Wall windows allow customers to take in panoramic views of the Lakeland Fells. We love the clean lines, and the easily accessible shelf levels which show the attention to detail that this company have gone to to ensure that all of their customers have a pleasant shopping experience.

Time-Lapse of Interior Fit Out of: The Alchemist

We captured the construction of one of Manchester’s most loved bars in the Salford Quays, The Alchemist. This stunning bar and restaurant offers creatively curated cocktails and modern cuisine and bar snacks. The concept of the restaurant promises devilishly devised mixology set in a mythical apothecary; this bar offers a theatrical dining experience in an incredible setting. Key to the success of this restaurant and execution of the brand values is the internal fit-out of this nationwide business which we were tasked with documenting. The water front location is utilised with wall windows looking out onto the view. A stunning floor to ceiling bar is created using bronze tones that further emphasise the magical mystique of this luxurious bar. We think our time-lapse photography perfectly shows the skill and craftsmanship of this fit-out and we cannot wait to take in the views, with a cocktail in hand, at this incredible location.

Odeon Interior Fit-Out Time-Lapse

We have worked with the ODEON Group, which is part of one of the largest movie exhibition companies in the world. We captured the fit-out of a number of cinemas for our client all over the UK, showing the plush surroundings in which their customers can watch the latest films and entertainment in comfort. Our time-lapse of these sites show in stunning detail the craftsmanship in creating these wonderful spaces. Odeon ensures that each and every one of their customers enjoys a consistent brand experience every time that they come. We love how there is a synergy across each site that we have worked on, and each one is distinctively recognisable as an ODEON cinema.

Sky Bet

We were delighted to capture the interior fit-out of this 134,000 sq ft office space for Sky Bet at Wellington Place in Leeds. This site will accommodate over 1,400 members of staff who will get to enjoy a range of new facilities, such as 79 meeting rooms, a rooftop terrace, ‘zen rooms’, a faith zone, mothering facilities, an in-house gym, barista coffee house and social gaming areas with pool tables and other equipment. The company will be spending a further £1,000,000 on audio visual and video conferencing equipment to help support all staff as they implement a new hybrid model of working from home 60% of the time.

THREE fit-out

We have worked for our client THREE on a number of projects capturing interior shop fit-outs of new high-street shops for this phone and broadband company. These shops used clean-cut aesthetics with an eye-catching colour palette and feature a range of seating and demonstration areas where technicians can discuss with customers their phone and broadband packages. THREE is hailed as having the UK’s fastest 5G network and has 99% UK coverage. Our time-lapse and site monitoring services helped our client to see a number of sites in real time remotely, and our interactive remote imaging system (iRiS) offered our client one easy to use platform where all sites could be viewed on one portal.

Vision Express Oxford Street

This Oxford Street flagship store for Vision Express was an important fit-out to document for our client. Located on one of London’s most recognisable streets which is incredibly popular with tourists. This lead store in the company’s retail chain was the jewel in its crown of their 390 nationwide shops, and needed to perfectly articulate the brand’s values and focus on the user experience. With this in-mind we wanted to showcase the facilities in this beautiful store such as their state-of-the-art examination rooms and vast stock of designer frames. This store offers 100 ways to test their customer’s eyes including cutting-edge digital retinol photography as-well as a glasses repair service. We think that this flagship store looks incredible and shows why Vision Express is the leading provider of designer eyewear in the UK.

Building Society Fit-Out

Time-lapse is the perfect media to document exciting changes in an indoor space. This project for a building society, saw rapid transformation in a short period of time, our engineers used rapid capture to document every element of this interesting interior fit-out for our client. A comfortable and clean office space was created for the large number of staff members that it needed to accommodate. Our team installed one of our systems to document the full construction of this purpose built building, as-well as a second system to capture the interior fit-out. We love how this newly constructed building has lots of natural light, creating a pleasant environment for those who work there. We loved documenting this project and watching the interior take shape. As-well as capturing with time-lapse, we also offer all of our clients a range of video and drone packages to show off completed spaces. We think our drone photography works wonderfully well here.

Restaurant Fit-Out

We captured the internal fit-out of this restaurant in Calderbrook, Lancashire, showing the transformation of this industrial space into a lively and bustling restaurant. This dining space uses luxurious fixtures and fittings, a naturalistic style with an array of indoor plants, untreated wood and matte black tones. Uplighting on shelves and a range of directional lights gives the restaurant a warm and inviting atmosphere which is truly lovely.

Veterinary Practise Fit-Out

We captured an internal fit-out for one of the UK’s leading veterinary service providers. CVS Vets has over 500 nationwide practises and places a huge emphasis on the quality of their care and their positive working environment where they nurture an ethos of exemplary professionalism and care for the animals that they are entrusted to look after. To do this they need to use the very best equipment and have great facilities. Our time-lapse services were used to capture the full fit-out of one of their veterinary practises showing the creation of a state-of-the-art laboratory. We are proud to work for such an incredible company that has clear values of compassion and care for all animals.

BT Contact Centre Build

We have time-lapsed a vast number of internal office spaces and call centres being constructed which show the huge transformation that takes place to make them comfortable and modern working areas. We were asked by our client to capture this contact centre build in Doncaster which will house 1,100 employees. A newly refurbished cafe and restaurant, relaxation areas, collaborative zones and flexible workspaces will contribute to a positive working environment. Additionally, the company has placed a huge emphasis on mental health and green initiatives with a mothering area and a space for quiet reflection and faith along with a ‘bike doctor’ to encourage employees to utilise more sustainable methods of transport. We think that our time-lapse perfectly shows the evolution of this space and demonstrates BT’s commitment to providing a positive place for people to work.

Time-Lapse of Interior Fit-Out: Aston Martin

We also captured a new production and distribution site for our clients, Aston Martin Lagonda. We have loved working for such a prestigious classic British brand known for providing automobile excellence for over 100 years. Our time-lapse and site-monitoring systems were used to monitor the building of this incredible facility, which is home to the one of the world’s most iconic luxury sports cars.

We love the variety of projects that we are entrusted to document and the positive effects on local communities when these newly created work spaces create job opportunities. Many of our clients invest heavily on their work spaces to ensure that they create positive happy environments for their employees to thrive and to encourage efficient and sustainable work flows. We feel very privileged to watch these spaces take shape and being used.

If you would like to hear more about the services we offer we would be happy to have an informal discussion about your project.
