With an estimated 70% of the world's population destined to live in urban areas by 2050 many, such as London, are facing acute housing shortage and are experiencing unnecessary urban sprawl areas. Rooftop space developments have an untapped ability to not only cope with the increase in housing demand, but to promote sustainable city living and reduce demands on other crucial infrastructure services.
Over the last 6 months we have been working with London residential airspace developers and we are expanding our coverage UK wide.

Access to reliable and fast internet connection has now become the standard. The UK’s investment in the 5G network will catapult our cities into the next generation of the internet age and has been estimated to generate an additional £10bn per annum in new business for the economy. Due to the technical complexities of the 5G, more antennae are needed for the roll out of this technology. Whilst 5G is on the tip of everyone’s
tongue Local Area Network providers are also rolling out their equipment making our urban environments even more connected.
Rooftops are ideally positioned for installation of both 5G, LAN and various IoT equipment and devices.

From the creation of small businesses, rooftop urban farms have many interrelated community and societal benefits. Locally sourced produce reduces the need for excessive preparation, packaging, storage, shipping - reducing infrastructure demands as well as other financial implications.
The potential for greater biodiversity and food security promotes not only produce variety in our urban environments, the green spaces created have been linked to individual and community well-being. The indirect impacts of urban farms are also significant with the attenuation of rainwater attenuation, through the reduction of hard surfaces, contributing to our urban flood resilience.
For property owners the benefits do not stop here, rooftop urban farms reduce building energy environmental impacts through insulation properties, carbon offsetting through reduced CO2 generation and reduction of urban heat island effects.
We are already working with UrbanAgri solution providers to create bespoke algorithms that will assess the suitability of their solution for airspace opportunities.

Urban air mobility, being a part of the future urban landscape, is a term used to describe the systems that enable on-demand, safe, highly automated, and passenger- and cargo-carrying air transportation services in a metropolitan environment for manned and unmanned aircraft systems. Utilising airspace above our cities and freeing ourselves from the limitations of ground transport is the next logical step in addressing traffic congestion. Planning for the transportation infrastructure of the future by adapting existing rooftops and designing new
buildings suitable for such technology is crucial.
So if you want to understand if your tenants would benefit today or in the future from this connectivity - We know how to go about it!

Air Pollution is estimated to kills 9 million people globally per annum and according to this Commission, the global financial costs of pollution are huge, totaling “$4.6 trillion per year — 6.2% of global economic output” - According to the EU Lancet commission
Whilst clean air technology is in its infancy the demand and value of healthy air is increasing dramatically and is high on the wish list of the Skyscape team.
At Skyscape we promote the creation of green spaces and proactive air cleaning schemes being installed along the cities' most polluted routes.
Our algorithms identify most efficient rooftop locations for air cleansing technology to be placed. Converting rooftops into environment-friendly areas can greatly reduce our impact on the environment and potentially save thousands of peoples lives every year.
