Filming begins at Helm Construction

Filming begins at Helm Construction

Empica Video editor Lisa Marley and writer Simon Harding got a whole new perspective on South Bristol during this week’s filming assignment at client Helm Construction’s latest development at St Luke’s Hall in Bedminster.

The four storey landmark– originally built in the 1870s as a ragged school to feed and support Bedminster’s poor - is the latest inner city regeneration project undertaken by the fast-expanding building company. The ambitious project will deliver eleven two and three-bedroom apartments – within the distinctive Victorian façade.

Simon and Lisa joined Helm Construction boss Gary Sheppard on the scaffolding to film  team members cracking on with interior walls and fittings – getting a fantastic bird’s eye view of  the city’s landmarks while they were there.

Simon said: “I can’t stand heights but Lisa was quite happy climbing what seemed like two million ladders to reach the fourth floor. It was well worth the effort though to get such a fantastic new perspective on South Bristol – as well as some great footage of Chris, John and the team patiently trooping up and down to ensure Lisa had just the right shots she needed!”

Simon and Lisa then joined Gary to film additional footage at a selection of Helm Construction sites including the innovative regeneration of a wartime air raid shelter at Filton Avenue Nursery School, along with new home developments at Bushy Park, Totterdown, Portland Square, in Bristol, Peache  Road in Downend, and footings work at Broad Lane in Yate.

Can’t wait to see the finished product – and tour those fantastic new buildings once they are finished!
