Meristem Design further established our status as the leading designer and constructor of Parklets in the UK by installing Europe’s largest Parklet in Perth, Scotland, and beginning the role out of a series of six Parklets in Islington!
Last week Meristem installed three Parklets on St Mary’s Axe, in the City of London, as part of the Active City Network initiative by the City of London Corporation.
The aim of the initiative is to utilise pedestrianisation and green infrastructure in urban design to create cleaner, safer, and more pleasant public spaces for the 513,000 workers in the city to enjoy - with a view to encouraging a healthier and more active lifestyle.
Meristem were at the forefront of the Mayor of London’s new drive to clean up our city’s air last week - installing green screens, as well as some other planting, in three schools around London during half term.
Wyvil Primary School in South Lambeth, Robin Hood Junior School in Sutton, and Christopher Hatton Primary School in Holborn are now the happy beneficiaries of our urban greening, providing a cleaner and healthier environment for their pupils to learn and play in.
We are delighted our Parklets won a Healthy Streets Award last Friday for the Best Healthy Streets Improvement District Project.
This was a joint application with Hammersmith BID for our Business Parklets on Hammersmith Grove, which are part of a wider initiative to deliver green spaces, cleaner air and promote cycling.
