In conjunction with WSS, the Mace team working at the London School of Economics Centre Buildings Redevelopment project implemented a bespoke visual warning unit to supplement the segregation of students and public from site delivery traffic. The unit was specifically designed to aid persons with visual disability.
The concertina gates are supplemented with a flashing beacon which acts as a further visual warning. During the tender stage of the project, LSE put a huge emphasis on the importance of segregating the students from site delivery vehicles. The project delivery route sits within the heart of the LSE Holborn Campus, surrounded by existing LSE buildings. After taking possession of site it quickly became evident the students have become used to walking down the centre of the road as though it is pedestrianised.
The concertina gates are supplemented with a flashing beacon and signage which act as a further visual warning.
Mace engaged with the LSE Estates department while developing the unit. LSE were keen to get involved and provided a warning sign and pole to aid mounting the flashing beacon unit.
