News Time-lapsing Wellington Place

5 July 2021 Kate

OUR most recent time-lapse video work at Wellington Place, Leeds, for MEPC marks eight years of capture at the impressive 1.9 million sq ft commercial site.

The award-winning, state-of-the-art, mixed-use buildings include office, leisure and retail and residential spaces.

We have been capturing the construction of the different buildings and phases since 2013, including 3, 4, 7 & 8 and 10 Wellington Place. And our most recent, ongoing work, documenting the build of 11 & 12 Wellington Place, can be followed through our live iRis 4.0 viewer embedded on the development’s website.

The complex is home to many high profile clients, including HMRC, Savills and Sky Betting & Gaming. In addition to documenting the various external works at Wellington Place, we also time-lapse Sky Bet’s new office fit-out at the site.

Our dedicated engineering teams have visited the Leeds location throughout the past eight years, surveying, installing and repositioning our camera systems to ensure full coverage of all developments – from major structural builds through to the creation of public spaces.

And our monitoring team have been on hand to remotely control and micro-manage the camera systems at every stage along the way, ensuring the best possible capture of the different activities and phases.

For each phase, our skilled editors have then created a tailored time-lapse video to showcase the full process of each new build, from groundworks to steel frame, and glazing to landscaping. 


The Wellington Place website has a dedicated page for all the final edited time-lapse videos for the numerous build projects, plus an embedded viewer of the current on-going project. Providing such visual reference and up to date information helps offer transparency and promotes the mixed-use development.

With work continuing at pace even during these challenging times, this means project managers, architects, contractors and the general public have been able to see works progressing throughout day-to-day via our bespoke viewing platform – iRis 4.0.

Wellington Place has also used time-lapse stills images and video edits for social media interaction – on Twitter, Facebook, and other channels – to connect with the public and to create interest in the different phases throughout the years at the site.


We, at Time-Lapse Systems, are privileged to work with MEPC at Wellington Place on such a large development and we look forward to continuing capturing progress for them.

Time-Lapse Systems are delighted to have a long-standing relationship with MEPC, capturing not only Wellington Place but also their developing portfolio of business and science parks across the UK. At Silverstone Park in Northamptonshire, MEPC is expanding the technology park at the heart of the high-tech Silverstone Technology cluster. Our time-lapse camera systems continue to be busy documenting ongoing work, including the construction of 1500 – 1506 Silverstone Park. Whilst we’ve been back recently to start capturing further construction as the park develops.

We’ve also reported extensively at another of their major sites – Milton Park in Oxfordshire, including the build of 101 Milton Park, a 55,000 sqft Grade A office development.
