Monitoring case study

Destination Broadgate


Broadgate is a 32-acre neighbourhood that bridges the City of London financial hub and the creative, tech-focused communities of Shoreditch and Old Street. It’s the largest pedestrianised neighbourhood in central London. £1.5 billion is being invested to transform the area over 10-years. The campus hosts many of the world’s leading financial, legal, technology and media companies, alongside some of London’s best food, drink, retail and entertainment. Four public squares provide an area of outside space which is unique in the City, providing the 30,000 people who work here and the 19 million who visit annually, with attractive places to relax and be entertained. This includes Exchange Square, a new 1.5-acre green space in the heart of the city. The result is a diverse, vibrant community and a world-class, mixed-use destination for London.


The Broadgate Estate is a popular business and commercial destination and as a result is densely packed with pedestrians. Flanked by Liverpool Street Station the challenge of controlling the noise, dust and vibration emissions from the site is significant.


We installed 30 monitors in and around the Broadgate Estate at the 100 Liverpool Street Building, 1 Finsbury Avenue, 135 Broadgate and most recently 2 Broadgate project. The data is made available online to over 25 different stake holders including British Land. Email alerts are set up to warn different parties if certain locations exceed set threshold levels.
