Air pollution is not only harmful to the health of humans but can have adverse effects on sensitive ecosystems and vegetation. We help our clients reduce, remove and mitigate air quality effects so that we have healthier cities to live and work in, and sensitive ecosystems are protected.

Integral to the planning process
Most projects require air quality effects to be assessed and minimised, either through the implementation of suitable mitigation measures or design. Early engagement of our experts will ensure that you are given practical advice on robust and cost-effective solutions to address air quality concerns and meet legislative and policy requirements.

An innovative approach
We don’t just assess outdoor air quality but indoor air quality too. As you would expect, we use industry standard air quality modelling and monitoring techniques following best practice guidance. We also research and develop innovative methods for those projects that are more unusual and require a bespoke approach.

Clearing the air
It is not just the air that we breathe, which we monitor and assess, but also the air we smell.  We assess the effects of odour from retail, commercial agricultural and industrial sources, such as wastewater treatment plants.

Thought leaders
Interpreting air quality data is a complex issue, with many influencing factors. In the run up to Clean Air Day our team took to the streets for an experiment with a portable sensor to understand exposure to air pollution whilst commuting to work, read the full article to find out more. 

Keeping our clients compliant
We’re helping our clients understand how they can stay ahead of legislative changes. The 2019 Clean Air Strategy sets out how the government intends to target air pollutant emissions across the maritime sector, whilst enhancing economic growth. The strategy includes a requirement for specific ports to develop and implement a Port Air Quality Strategy, our top tips set out how to develop a successful strategy.
