Indoor Longterm Timelapse Project - Racklock

Racks & Shelf Installation for Midas

It's always great if your client allows you to do your job in the best possible way. This time Racklock did just that! Not only is this the second project that we shot for them but this time around they understood the necessity to use 4 cameras for the duration of the entire project.
Not just that, it's also one of the biggest once-off installations to date hence the importance to capture something truly impressive.

With an installation project that is estimated to take about 4 or 5 months, you know it's going to be a big one!

Here are some of the important stats of the installation by Racklock / Pallion for the brand new Midas warehouse:

  • Manufacturing Lead time: 5 Weeks
  • Racking: 840 tons of raw material
  • Structural Mezzanine: 85 tons of raw material
  • Fixings:  206,200
  • Uprights rolled:  34,300m
  • Bracing rolled: 31,000m
  • Beams rolled: 112,600m
  • Over 14,500 timber decks installed
  • Over 1000 bays of shelving installed
  • 14,490 Shelf Dividers
  • 1,740 sqm of Structural Steel Mezzanine
  • 7,625 sqm of Rack supported Mezzanine
  • Installation: 18 Weeks

We refer to these projects as "short term - longterm" timelapses since the action is happening in less than 6 months.
We make use of a different camera system for our outdoor projects which can range from 1 year up to 4 or even 5 years. In this case, all 4 cameras was static during the installation period except for one that had to be moved as predicted due to the nature of the installed items.

Indeed this was quite an impressive installation process! It's important to note that if it wasn't for the client who wanted to use more cameras, it would not have been possible to do such an amazing job. So special thanks to Racklock for making use of 4 cameras to capture the entire project. More is not always better but for something like this, it surely is! Also, special thanks to Nanette Grebe from Handmade Media for doing our final edit and graphics. You rock!
