Since December 2016 we have been documenting the progress at a soil remediation site in Tipner, Portsmouth, Hampshire for national remediation experts SoilFix. 
 
During each visit we have been capturing plan-view progress photographs of the enormous 6-hectare site, which we have had to split up into 3 separate sections — even when using our widest-angle lens and flying at our maximum permissible altitude of 400ft the site doesn't fit in a single image!

Last month we were commissioned by Corniche Builders to photograph one of their latest projects — a brand new flint-clad church hall in Redhill, Surrey. Justifiably proud of the beautiful design and execution of this new building, Corniche were keen to show it off to its best using professional ground-level and elevated photographs. 
 
The church hall was built directly next to the existing 19th Century St John the Evangelist Church, and it was key that the design and appearance of the new hall matched the church as closely as possible.

One of the few certainties about Brexit is that the UK is not going to stop building. In his Autumn Statement the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, relaxed the fiscal belt a notch or two in order that the country could remain economically active throughout the process of leaving the European Union. The UK’s property development and construction companies have performed particularly well during the last quarter, reinforcing this point.

National construction firm Willmott Dixon have used our services a number of times over the last few months to document some of their recently completed projects across the South East of the UK. 
 
The latest two sites to be filmed were Bohunt School in Worthing, West Sussex and Warfield School in Warfield, Berkshire. The brief for both of the videos was the same – produce a 2-3 minute promotional video comprising both aerial and ground-based footage, that would give someone who hasn't visited the site before an idea of the scale and complexity of the work that had been undertaken. 
Horizon Imaging is currently documenting a 12-week scaffolding erection project at St Teresa Of The Child Jesus church in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire. Every 7-10 days we are visiting the site with our 50-foot telescopic mast and taking elevated progress photographs which will form part of an animated slideshow showing how the scaffolding has been erected.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take some aerial photographs of a new housing development in Scaynes Hill, near Haywards Heath, West Sussex for luxury homebuilder Denton Group. Due to the proximity of the site to a nearby road, both our telescopic mast and our drone were used to take the required aerial photographs.
