Why use a time-lapse camera for this project?

Construction cameras were installed at key vantage points around the site to continuously monitor the progress of the building work. This was essential to stringent oversight and ensuring adherence to project timelines and safety regulations. The cameras were used for:

  • Real-Time Progress Monitoring: Live feeds from construction cameras the project managers to oversee the day-to-day operations in real time.
  • Investor Communications: One of the primary uses of the footage from these cameras was to create time-lapse videos that documented the construction progress from start to finish. These videos were invaluable in investor presentations, providing a dynamic and engaging way to demonstrate the project’s advancement and the effective use of funds.
