Croydon construction site simplifies approach to air quality

EMSOL is now helping simplify Croydon Council’s approach to air quality at the Wandle Road car park development, a 25-storey block of residential flats that will which will bring 128 new homes in central Croydon. The Wandle development is part of a major £5.25bn regeneration programme in the borough that will transform the town centre.

Croydon Council has been at the forefront of investments to manage environmental impact. With EMSOL they are realising their ambition to deliver a clean environment in the borough. Construction sites have long monitored pollution, but EMSOL is providing real-time, specific evidence about emissions breaches. So enforcement teams can pinpoint the problem the moment it becomes a problem, and take specific steps to improve air quality.

Alex Polkington, Principal Network Impact Assessment Engineer, Croydon Council said, “with the old school system of monitoring, you know there is pollution somewhere in the vicinity”. However, with EMSOL, “we can see what the [emissions] breach was, how intensive it was, and where on the site the breach occurred. And that’s critical”.
