Amazing 360 imagery Aerial 360 Virtual Tour for Crest Nicholson!

STOP! Before you read about the project, check out the end result of this amazing aerial 360 virtual tour we’ve created for Crest Nicholson (click on image above) – zoom right in to see the detail we are able to capture even at great heights using our dedicated 360 panorama drone………

360 imagery are proud to be the sole suppliers of virtual tours to one of the biggest privately owned residential and commercial property developers in the UK. Crest Nicholson have been building new homes for over 50 years and in 2015, saw profits of £163.3 million! We have been creating virtual tours for this client since 2010, taking over from a previous supplier, on average producing approximately 50 show home and apartment virtual tours per year. When you see the high quality of the end result of a 360 imagery virtual tour it’s easy to see why they come to us! Crest Nicholson also recognise what a cost-effective marketing tool a 360 imagery tour is, and love the fact we can turn the work around quickly (on average, publishing a Crest Nicholson showhome tour within 3 days of taking the initial photographs!).

The core business for 360 imagery is bespoke, high resolution 360 virtual tours – we’ve been doing this since 2006 and like to think we’re rather good at it! Check out our Portfolio Page to see some of the big clients and exciting projects we’ve worked on. We are passionate about what we do, and are always looking for ways to be able to offer even more, always keeping up to date with advancing technologies. Over the last few years we have started to specialise in other exciting areas, offering more services to the client, including capturing high resolution 360 panoramas, stills and videos from up to 400 feet using a ‘heavy lift’ drone. This is the UKs only dedicated ‘heavy lift’ drone specifically designed to shoot with Canon 5DSR & prime lenses (i.e. very expensive pieces of glass at great heights!).

A word of warning – beware of competitors flying cheap ‘toy’ drones with small, poor resolution cameras producing significantly inferior end results, claiming to offer the ‘same’ as us but cheaper. Usually, cheap in price will mean cheap in quality! If you are in any doubt, just see how far you can zoom in before the image pixilates (becomes distorted) and compare it to ours above. Our clients demand the best, and we are proud to provide! Repeat business speaks volumes – see the number of repeat clients we have on our Client Page of our website!

This project for Crest Nicholson at Tadpole Gate brought together several of our specialisms into one big virtual tour – stunning aerial 360 panoramas along with virtual tours of specific show homes within the development. Within the tour, click on the pulsing hotspots to fly down and ‘visit’ 2 of the show homes. As standard with all our work, we bespoke design the Graphic User Interface around the development logo and colours, blending perfectly into their existing website. It’s a highly interactive tour with text annotations highlighting the overall development layout, points of interest etc., and also interactive floorplans of the show homes.

360 imagery are one of the leading virtual tour providers in the UK. We’d love to hear from you and chat about thoughts you may have for your own project. Just give Stuart a call on 0845 8726442, or visit us at
