The £85 million extension to the Eastbourne Arndale Centre will be recorded on film by two time- lapse cameras.
The cameras, installed on the Arndale Centre car park and Eastbourne Railway Station, will capture every moment of the scheme that will transform the town centre forever.
When work has been completed on the 170,000 sq ft scheme that is being funded by Arndale Centre owners Legal & General, the recordings will be edited to provide a short film showing the construction of an additional 22 new retail units, around 300 extra car parking spaces, seven restaurants and a nine-screen cinema.
The time-lapse cameras have been installed by Regenology, which has filmed many significant projects throughout the UK including The London 2012 Olympics, the construction of the Met Office Supercomputer, The Open Golf Championship and Sky F1.
Live footage from the cameras can be seen on the Arndale Centre website.
Neil Crawford, Head of Retail & Leisure Development for Legal & General Property, said, “For a project of this scale, that will really change the centre of Eastbourne, the cameras will provide an invaluable recording of the transformation for generations to come.”
Construction group Kier, which is delivering the scheme, began work to divert underground services away from the development site in January and demolition work is expected to begin this month.
