Important Meeting with Jarvis Directors

Having worked hard to create photo reports of progress on the Foresters Development by Jarvis, just off the High Street in Harpenden, the dismantling of the crane gave me the vehicle to transport me, to the offices of the developers. Today, I had an important appointment with the Managing Director, Steve Cook.

I had originally been drawn to the site by the sight of the crane as I approached Harpenden back in November of last year. When I learned of its impending removal, I decided that I would attempt to create a time lapse movie of the work by shooting the dismantling one shot every ten seconds over the six or so hours that it took to be carried out, and compiling them into a movie. I was a time-lapse virgin, but I spoke to colleagues and read various articles and mentioned to the site manager, James Blackie that this was my intention, and he thought it might be a very interesting project, and discussed how the operation was to be planned.

Later when he saw what I had produced, he and several of his colleagues told me that it was a very interesting result and when I asked who I might contact at head office, they gave me their Managing Director’s name and contact number, and Jason said yes, he would try and put in a word for me. I then contacted Steve Cook on the following Monday and today at nine thirty I found myself in his office and soon after, in walked the Marketing Director Geoff Hollis.

Only time will tell whether I have convinced these two of my competence and value, but certainly I felt that the presentation went well, and I sincerely hope that at some date in the future I may be invited to tender for work with the company. Above is a photo of the headquarters building shot just the afternoon before.
