Construction Progression Photography at The International Convention Centre at The Celtic Manor, South Wales.

Last year we were lucky enough to be asked by John Sisk to supply them with monthly Construction Progression Photography of the International Convention Centre.

Funded jointly between the Welsh Government, The Celtic Manor and Natwest the Convention Centre will be based in Newport, South Wales at the Celtic Manor Resort. Building on the success of the Nato Summit and the 2019 Ryder Cup, The Celtic Manor will soon have this incredible facility, enabling them to host large conferences, concerts and events.

Our aerial construction progression photographs will help the contractors and the client monitor the progression of the project in ways impossible before the advent of drone technology. Once a month we visit the site and capture aerial photographs showing the progression of the project compared to the previous month. We edit the photographs and upload them to an online gallery that can be viewed from anywhere in the world.

As well as the aerial photographs we also capture 360° aerial photographs. The drone captures multiple photographs from all angles at a specific spot. Our software then stitches these images into a full 360° virtual tour. Multiple 360° images are linked together to create a complete virtual tour of the site. The view can navigate through the images and view exactly the area that is of most interest.

The Convention Centre has now reached a stage where most of the work being completed is internal. Obviously the aerial photographs can’t see inside the building so as part of the package we carry out ground based photography with traditional DSLRs. We can still create the 360° from the ground so we link these to the other aerial photographs.

We have had some fantastic feedback from John Sisk as well as The Celtic Manor with the construction progression photography being shared all around the world. If you would like to speak to us about a project that you are involved with, feel free to contact us for any advice or to meet one of our staff.

Here is a link to the gallery that we update every month for the convention centre.
