A Month At Cholmondeley Castle Gardens

We are continuing to capture the next phrase on Lavinia Walk at Cholmondeley Castle Gardens in Cheshire. Lavinia Walk links the Temple Garden to the newly renovated Rose Garden and is a tribute to Dowager Marchioness.

In the August time lapse video below, you can see the gardeners maintaining the beautiful flower beds and see the colours burst out. Also, in between the borders they have planted delicate Chinese Crab Apple Trees.

We started to record this phase back in February 2018, so watch this space for the final time lapse video. Similarly, we have also captured the landscaping of a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. To see more of our time lapse videos visit our gallery.

Capturing the best at RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Time lapse is an excellent way of capturing landscaping projects and seeing how quickly designs can take shape as you watch the garden unfold.

Back in May 2018, we had the pleasure of capturing the silver award-winning garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show – The Warner Edwards Artisan Gin Garden. The design was inspired by Falls Farm, Northamptonshire where every bottle of Warner Edwards Gin is distilled.

The time lapse camera was installed for 10 days to capture the start to the end, with famous faces visiting the garden such as Monty Don and the presenter Alex Jones.

Lucy Edwards from Warner Edwards said, “We loved the time lapse – it was fascinating to see the garden being built from the ground up.

Lisgar Terrace Regeneration (Phase 4)

Lisgar Terrace in Hammersmith and Fulham is an inter-war development that Southern Housing Group built in 1928 to provide homes for those who needed it the most. Last year the regeneration of Lisgar Terrace (phase 4) began.

Regeneration

Starting from August 2017 we captured the development at Lisgar Terrace and are continuing to record the progress. The design and build will preserve the historic building whilst maintaining the character of the estate.

The time lapse video showcases the existing blocks stripped back to the shell and core.  Also, the rooftops raised to create an extension for additional bedroom space. As well as this there is a major internal refurbishment with the replacement of the windows to match the original design.

Time Lapse Video

Using time lapse to document the regeneration encourages engagement within the local community.  The residents can see for themselves the progress being made in a short 3 – 4 minutes video.

M1 Overbridge Time Lapse Video

This weekend we captured the installation of the new bridge over the M1 in Leicestershire.

In the video a huge trolley was put together on the carriageway which was then used to slide the constructed bridge across the motorway. This bridge will help alleviate traffic travelling through local villages and forms part of the Kegworth Bypass.

To find out more about the installation and watch the time lapse video here.

Winter Transformation

Ever wondered how they build an ice rink outdoors? Well, check out the time lapse video below which shows the ice rink build process.

We recently deinstalled our cameras from both Portsmouth and Southampton which captured skaters having fun this winter.

Southampton Ice Rink:

The one in Southampton took a month to film, from December to January, and was the first ever real ice rink at West Quay.

Portsmouth Ice Rink:

Watch the transformation on Guildhall Square in Portsmouth, and see the 646 sq ft ice rink come to life with this time lapse video. Filming took place in November until December to capture the build progress and the skaters on the rink.

The Unveiling of Tredegar House

Tredegar House is a 17th-century mansion house in Newport, Wales. Last year the National Trust began a 10 year project of conservation and commercial development. The key task of the renovation was to restore the roof over the north-west range of the Tredegar House, which had been leaking for a number of years. They removed over 35 tonnes of Welsh slate! The leaks in the roof were not only posing a threat to the precious collection inside the house, by altering the humidity levels, but were causing the conservation team hours of work carrying buckets of rainwater out of the house.

Why did the National Trust use time lapse?

The nature of the project meant there were limited opportunities to share with visitors the work that was actually happening up on the roof. The National Trust decided to use time lapse to capture the progress of the project not only as a means of record but also to share with those people the full extent of work that had taken place which the house had been under scaffolding.

The time lapse project took 11 months to complete, capturing the restoration on the roof to the unveiling of scaffolding to reveal the historic Tredegar House. View the final time lapse video below.

A New Era for ERA Home Security

We recently de-installed a time lapse camera from a site in Wolverhampton for ERA Home Security. They are moving from a site that was 80 years old to a brand new purpose built building to support their growth and help transform the business. As it is a huge event in their company’s history, and they were keen for their employees to buy into the change, they decided to use time lapse so everyone could monitor the progress.

It is situated on the i54 technology business park in Wolverhampton, and will bring the existing sites across the midlands together into a central head office and distribution centre. It will also be home to ERA’s state-of-the-art manufacturing, R&D and product development.

We captured the project from start to finish which took around 10 months to complete. Watch the whole time lapse video which we put together for ERA Home Security below.

Time Lapse UK enters growing market

Time lapse photography has become increasingly popular over the last few years as businesses look for innovative ways to get noticed. As a consequence Commission Air, which has over 25 years experience in commercial photography, launched their time lapse service over two years ago.

As the time lapse market continues to grow and with advancements in technology, expectations of customers have increased, and are demanding a better and an enhanced product offering. In view of this continuing trend, Commission Air launched Time Lapse UK which will focus on increasing customer choice, providing a quality and dedicated service at a highly competitive price.

“This is an exciting time to be in the time lapse photography business,” said Paul Nixon, Sales and Marketing Manager at the company. “Time Lapse UK is in a unique position because we’re part of a group that already has an established position in the commercial photography market. That means we have the technical, creative and business expertise to provide a superior product at a price that we think most businesses can afford.”

Organising a time lapse project

With as many cameras as you need and 24/7 access to your images, time lapse photography is actually one of the easiest ways to capture what’s happening with your project:

  • It can take as little as half a day to set up the cameras, which are robust and certified for outdoor conditions. These cameras are then set to capture the work on your site for as long as you need it – a day, a week, a month, several months or even several years.
  • Images are fed to a secure server via a 3G connection, and authorised people can view the still images in real time. All projects are given a full video at the end of every month, so that they can share progress, and then a fully edited and professionally produced video is created at the end of the project.
  • Time lapse photography is suitable for indoor and outdoor events – helping organisers, project managers, PR teams and marketing departments to capture the very best footage to show employees, directors, investors and stakeholders. Contact our expert team here.

“We’re extremely excited to be part of this dynamic and expanding market,” added Nixon. “We’ve been working with some outstanding clients, producing high-quality time lapse video that allows them both to monitor their site on a real-time basis, and produce professional final videos that promote their work. It’s a great time to be involved in this industry.”
