Air Quality

Air quality plays an important role in our daily lives as it affects our health, comfort and productivity. As part our commitment to helping communities thrive, we design practical solutions to ambient, atmospheric and indoor challenges.

WSP offers in-depth experience in all aspects of air quality management, from calculation of emissions inventories, to developing and implementing monitoring programs, air quality modelling in support of environmental impact assessments and atmospheric emissions applications to health risk assessments.


State-of-the-art equipment, strategic modelling and risk assessment techniques enable our teams to evaluate problems accurately and to engineer workable solutions to complex and potentially costly environmental issues.


Our approach to air quality modelling is characterised by our depth of expertise, and a firm commitment to quality assurance and innovation. Our modelling experts have a range of resources available, from initial screening assessments to complex source and terrain modelling. They use a range of dispersion modelling platforms including ADMS, AERMOD and CALPUFF, each of which are implemented according to project and client requirements.


In addition, our air quality and risk assessment specialists work closely together to ensure integration of air quality monitoring and modelling with assessment of human health or environmental risks and cost-effective management of air quality issues.
