Sky high spy keeps tabs on stadium progress
It means the public can watch the building going up.
Tennent and Brown architect Ewan Brown saw time lapse cameras on overseas projects and decided to give it a go.
“It’s a really good tool for clients and we will apply it more and more to our projects,” says Mr Brown.
At completion, Mr Brown wants to create a video of the project from start to finish.
The camera was installed with the help of fire officers using a bronto sky lift, a specialist fire vehicle with an extending ladder and boom.
Senior fire trainer Roger White says the tower is a wind tunnel and can create a vortex, so the camera has to be firmly secured to stop it blowing away in windy Wellington.

Mainzeal says the weather has been a factor in construction, with many days of heavy rain slowing progress, although the project is still on target to be completed by August next year.
