Construction work can result in negative impacts on local air quality, with dust emissions being a key concern for local authorities and their communities. Our air quality team offer expert air quality services tailored to meet the individual needs of your project, at the planning, consent and construction stages.
We provide all aspects of dust assessment, dispersal modelling, dust management plans and monitoring. Our environmental construction team will help you gain planning consent on any air quality requirements.
How we do it
Air Quality Monitoring
Whether you need monitoring of dust and deposition during construction works, ambient monitoring of open spaces or emissions and workplace monitoring of plant and machinery, we can help.
Designers at hand
We work with you and your team to provide expert advice on air quality design, alongside or separately from our usual acoustic design services. We can liaise with relevant stakeholders on your behalf, including the Environment Agency, Local Authorities and affected local community members too.
Air Quality Assessments
When potential impacts on air quality are likely, an AQ assessment may be necessary. We provide air quality and dust impact assessments across all sectors, as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process or as required by planning conditions. Assessments will be tailored to your project and any identified sources of emissions and/or local receptors.
We can provide consultancy advice on the appropriate measures needed to control emissions, manage dust and to mitigate impacts, including dust management plans and advanced modelling, to enable us to advise on likely impacts and dispersion.
