AS one of the first and most trusted time-lapse providers, we have helped capture many government and military projects on sites across the UK.
We have regularly secured specialist clearances & permissions for work on many sensitive sites and projects.
Our solid track record, equipment and protocols mean we are always well equipped to provide extremely secure and reliable services when capturing in locations that require the highest standards.
Large-scale projects on military and former military sites include works at Alconbury Weald, MoD Stafford, Arborfield Garrison, RAF Brampton, MoD Lyneham and Aldershot Garrison, ‘the home of the British Army’. We also capture at other locations which remain confidential.
At RAF Brampton, we began capturing demolition works in 2016, using a multi-camera approach.
In order to achieve the desired coverage of site, we had to use a former communications tower – with no built-in access. A specialist cherry picker was required to reach the final height of 35ft.
For work such as these the accreditations we hold from leading national bodies are a necessity, and ensure the safest methods and practices are followed.
Working in sensitive environments also presents other challenges. Due to the extensive amount of land military sites tend to occupy, access to mains power is not always possible.
For example, an off-grid (solar and turbine) time-lapse camera system set-up was needed to capture a development at Arborfield Garrison in Berkshire, as there was no on-grid power available.
Elsewhere in the South of England, we captured a one-year-long development project at MoD Lyneham, Wiltshire – under strict security measures. The Hercules JV delivered a £121m Ministry of Defence scheme, building the new Defence College for Technical Training.
In the Midlands, we also provided secure capture of major long-term developments at another Ministry of Defence site.
We continue to provide our services for ongoing government and military sites around the country, ever committed to applying the strictest and most reliable methods, which are also applied across the range of our work.
