LSE leads a cross organisational team to understand specific sources of pollution in the local community.
As part of its 2030 vision LSE is committed to creating a #SustainableLSE. LSE’s Estates Division is responsible for providing a world-class built environment for its students and staff.
Their current project, the Marshall Building at 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, is an urban redevelopment involving demolition of an existing building and construction of a new, mixed use building with 12-levels. The site is in the heart of the university campus, so LSE was keen to understand more about air quality challenges potentially caused by construction vehicle traffic.
Working in collaboration with EMSOL has allowed LSE to gather evidence to enhance future action on reducing pollution. EMSOL has given LSE, Mace, and Hansons a better understanding of the specific impact of their construction activities on air quality, to learn where and how they can make a difference.
EMSOL enables businesses to take targeted action every day to improve air quality and the local environment. We do this by aggregating real-time air and noise pollution with vehicle location data, allowing teams to pinpoint the problem the moment it becomes a problem, and take specific steps to improve air quality.
