There are few urban environments where the air quality is poorer than under a city flyover and the Hammersmith flyover is no exception. The solution: over 95m of Living Green Screens in custom made planters. These pollution reducing screens are part of Hammersmith BID's Business Low Emission Neighbourhood and funded by Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
Meristem presented and exhibited our new Wifi enable Parklets at this years Cycling + Walking Innovations event at the Kia Oval, on the 5th December.
We presented to a full house our new range of Parklets that have wifi capability built in, with power accessible from lamp columns creating a community hub. This enables interaction and sponsorship by private companies through the wifi landing page and will provide useful user data and feedback.
Meristem designed, supplied and installed 3 Parklets across the borough of Ealing.
The 3 Parklets are modular and can easily be moved to different locations using a pallet truck. They have a number of wooden benches and 6 bike parking spaces and are designed to encourage cycling, improve air quality, increase biodiversity and make the street greener for residents, shoppers and businesses.
This week we launched 4 of our new community Parklets on Hammersmith Grove, 2 of them even had 3m high Green Pergolas.
Combining trees and plants with wooden benches and cycle parking, these 4 10m by 2.5m Parklets are designed to encourage cycling, improve air quality and make the street greener for residents, shoppers and businesses. They’re also part of a borough-wide plan to support and encourage biodiversity in the area.
