ANS Global’s Principal Urban Environment Consultant, Steve McInyre, joined us at EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class, South 2021 last month and explained how we can harness the power of nature in our interior designs and urban spaces to improve air quality and decrease the risk of diseases, such as asthma and lung cancer, associated with air pollutants. Steve discussed the impact nature can have on a space, and how this data can be used to develop systems that allow us to apply these benefits in nearly every area, inside and out. With reference to projects ranging from Dukes Court Plaza (Woking) and Glasshouse MSCP (Alderley Park, Cheshire) to 338 Euston Road (part of British Land’s Regents Place Campus in London) and the WHO’s Swiss headquarters (Geneva), his presentation demonstrated the impact of nature-based systems on air quality and local biodiversity, why it’s important for Living Walls and Green Roofs to be utilised more and how to integrate them successfully in different applications.
