VTS Installs Camera To Monitor Chapel Construction

9/13/2013

Alexandria, VA –An installation of a construction camera at Virginia Theological Seminary on Sept. 6 is making it possible to track the progress of the seminary’s new Immanuel Chapel as well as the redesign of the Worship and Welcome Center and the 1881 Chapel Garden. Interested observers can track the images from anywhere in the world with access to the Internet at http://oxblue.com/open/VirginiaTheologicalSeminary/Chapel.

For the next two years, the camera will capture images of the construction site 24/7. The functionality of the interface allows users to open a visual calendar and view photos from a specific date and time of day; zoom in on the image as high as 600 percent; and produce time-lapse movies.

The camera has been installed in advance of the ground breaking service, which will be held Saturday, Sept 14 at 11 a.m. Officiates of the service will be the Rt. Rev. James J. Shand, bishop of the Diocese of Easton and chair of the board of trustees and The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, dean and president of VTS.

The groundbreaking for the new Immanuel Chapel will be at  11:00 a.m. this Saturday, Sept. 14 on the grove, followed by a reception in the refectory.
