Howard Cottage

Howard Cottage is a Housing Association based in Letchworth Garden City, Herts. They approached Solutions in September 2017 interested in a ‘time lapse camera installation for a construction site in Letchworth Garden City’. The proposed plan was to pull down an old, disused building and rebuild a structure containing 40 new units.

With very little notice (the dismantling had already started), Solutions reacted immediately and installed a camera within days. The time lapse captured the complete dismantle of the building and the efficient clear up and separation of different waste materials for recycling. The time lapse film was delivered to Howard Cottage on time and budget in January 2018 with plans to build the new construction when building starts in April 2018.

It’s still one of my favourite timelapses; who can beat watching a building come down brick by brick and diggers dancing around piles of different types of rubble? It’s hypnotic watching and just demonstrates what a tidy job Howard Cottage have done!
