Time-lapse for Regeneration

We have been involved in many regeneration projects over the years, and these often involve demolition, construction and landscaping, all of which can be captured by time-lapse. For many of the regeneration projects we’ve worked on, the results have been transformative for the area and the people who live there. Having a live link to these projects as the work unfolds can be extremely engaging for residents who might be affected by the on-going works, but who will ultimately benefit from the final result, and capturing these life-changing projects for posterity can be particularly important for the people involved in them.

Please take a look at the examples below, and contact us if you’d like to know more.

Example 1: Dee Park Regeneration Project

The regeneration of Dee Park in Reading is transforming a 40-year old residential estate into an exciting new living environment, and is the result of a long and carefully considered consultation with local residents and the community. The multi-phase regeneration involved the creation of modern new homes, a new community hub, an exemplar two-form entry primary school and retail facilities as well as better quality landscaping, open spaces and play areas, a new school, shops and a community centre. The contractor, Willmot Dixon, used our live link to the project on their website throughout the works, and also used our time-lapse film of the first phase of regeneration as part of their promotion of the project: https://www.willmottdixon.co.uk/projects/dee-park-reading

Example 2: Blackhorse Lane Regeneration

A series of small changes signal the beginning of the renewal of Blackhorse Lane and the regeneration of the area. New kerbs, paving and planting emphasise the entrances of Blackhorse Lane’s industrial estates and the Wetlands, and decorative paving slabs direct visitors to local points of interest. We used two time-lapse cameras and utilised our ability to zoom to good effect in this film of the regeneration works.

Example 3: Regeneration of Bedford Bus Station

Including real-time display screens, a travel centre and a new departure hub, the replacement of Bedford Bus Station is a major regeneration project which has transformed the local area, significantly improving the facilities available for bus passengers with a new travel centre as well as a new building design which means passengers can walk from the concourse and onto a bus while staying under cover. Our time-lapse camera captured the entire regeneration project, from demolition to completion of the new build, and as you can see, the new building is a vast improvement on the tired structure that was there before.

Example 4: Dartford Town Centre Regeneration

The regeneration of Market Street in Dartford has created new ‘pocket parks’ to provide calm, natural spaces for shoppers and visitors to enjoy a break or just kick back and relax over coffee or lunch. The area is becoming a public space that’s much more about trees, planting and green spaces than it is about concrete, railings and bollards. Our time-lapse camera captured the work and we utilised our ability to zoom to good effect in the final film. Walker Construction Ltd posted our time-lapse film of the works on their YouTube channel as a promotional and engagement tool.

Example 5: Regeneration of the Shadwell Estate

The Shadwell Estate regeneration project involved the transformation of the main courtyard from an uninspiring space to a place where people would want to spend time and enjoy being outside. The new outside space has created areas where residents can relax or socialise, provides new play opportunities for younger residents, has made the whole estate accessible to all residents and has created biodiverse walls and roofs to create habitats for London wildlife, and it was all captured by our time-lapse camera.

Example 6: Leopold Estate Communal Garden Regeneration

The housing association Poplar Harca asked Regenology to record their regeneration and landscaping of the communal gardens in the middle of the Leopold estate. Time-lapse cameras recorded the entire project, and in addition, the Regenology team visited the site at various stages throughout the project, to record additional film of the work and the final finished gardens. The combination resulted in an beautiful and engaging film of the project and demonstrates how useful additional filming can be to add an extra layer of interest to a time-lapse film.

Example 7: Lesnes to Crossness

This area of London, now named Southmere Square, has undergone major redevelopment, having now been transformed into a beautiful park featuring a play area and seating with a stunning view over nearby Southmere Lake. Our time-lapse film captures the stunning transformation beautifully.
