News: Time Lapse Movie for Building B2 Columns

05 October 2012

Take a look at the fascinating process involved in creating the columns for the St Pancras Square / Kings Cross development through this time lapse movie.

 John Sturrock who is photographing The St Pancras Square / Kings Cross development on behalf of Argent spent a day at the foundry last week. In addition to the photographs of the process that he took he also produced and edited this time lapse movie for us.

The movie was shot from approximately 2:30 to 6:30 and shows the process from melting and pouring the iron into the moulds through to breaking out the castings. If you look carefully as they lift the completed columns out of the moulding boxes you’ll see that the iron is still glowing.
