Air Quality

We provide a range of specialist acoustic and air quality services.

These cover all stages of the project life cycle, from initial desktop studies to expert witness support at a public inquiry. Our services are being deployed on high profile schemes such as Crossrail and HS2 and on numerous smaller projects, where specialist acoustics and air quality input is an essential part of the process.

In common with acoustics, we tailor our air quality services to meet the needs of each client. This may mean monitoring air quality in relation to a high profile project while also helping the client engage with relevant local authorities. It could mean running a wide-ranging public consultation programme before assembling relevant data for an EIA report.

Our services extend from support for private and public sector clients at the pre-consent stage to ongoing monitoring throughout the construction process. Providing relevant authorities with the evidence that consent requirements have been carried out can be an important part of what we do.

Our main air quality services include:

  • Initial desktop studies and site visits to highlight key sensitive receptors.
  • Baseline monitoring to determine air quality prior to a planning application or prior to demolition and construction.
  • Data gathering and reports for an EIA, where required as part of a planning application.
  • Air quality monitoring, management and reporting during construction and the early operation of a facility.
  • Contributions to policy development for bodies such as the Environment Industry Commission (EIC) and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
