Air quality impacts our health, comfort and productivity. WSP offers in-depth experience in all aspects of air quality management, from the calculation of emissions inventories, developing and implementing monitoring programs, air quality modelling in support of Environmental Impact Assessments and Atmospheric Emissions License (AEL) applications to Health Risk Assessments.

Our approach to air quality modelling is characterized by our depth of expertise, commitment to quality assurance and innovation. Our modelling experts have a range of resources available, from initial screening assessments to more complex dispersion modelling. These techniques are used on a client-specific and project-specific basis to provide our clients with the most appropriate solutions for their needs. We make use of a range of dispersion modelling platforms including AERMOD and CALPUFF, each of which are implemented according to project and client requirements.

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.

We offer comprehensive air quality management services ranging from fugitive emissions monitoring, to developing dispersion models for legislative compliance or input for impact assessment studies, to complex studies that quantify human health risks from hazardous air pollutants.
