Breathing Life into Cities: Combining Plants and Innovation to Process Air Pollution! EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2H 2019 Retrospective


See Related event

What is air pollution comprised of and how can smart horticultural content of urban greening solutions help? What do specifiers have to be aware of when incorporating ‘green’ into cities? What research is being undertaken to maximise the benefits of plants in the built environment? These were amongst the questions Scotscape’s Niall McEvoy addressed in his presentation at EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2H 2019 last month.

Scotscape guide clients and specifiers to place the correct plant in the correct location using the correct method. Working with Dr Ross Cameron at Sheffield University they are putting his learnings into action with the Woodland Living Wall which contains the best woody plants for trapping gases and the best plants to trap particulate matter. As innovative landscape construction specialists, Scotscape have also developed the Smart Pillar, a greening method to clad existing green infrastructure with plants where it is not possible to plant trees owing to underground surfaces and maintenance cost to councils. The Smart Pillar trial is located on London’s Ebury Street as part of the Grosvenor Estate. Niall’s presentation in Birmingham also highlighted the state of internal air pollution as being crucial to wellbeing in cities, explained how plants in office spaces and homes bring big benefits, and discussed CO2 in the workplace, VOCs and how they impact on health, citing Cundall’s research into this issue. Application of Scotscape’s research was further demonstrated in Niall’s case study of Team London Bridge Living Wall at Guys and St Thomas’s.
