REC’s Air Quality Assessments support your planning applications and industrial environmental permitting applications. Air quality assessments consider whether sites are suitable for the proposed use, or to determine whether a development will cause significant air quality impacts at sensitive locations.
Our air quality assessment can be used as a standalone report or form part of an Environmental Impact Assessment.
Our state-of-the-art air quality dispersion modelling assessments help to determine potential air quality issues at the very early stages of a project and inform scheme design and any measures to mitigate potential air quality impacts in a timely and cost-effective way.
Dispersion modelling is recognised as a critical tool in the determining potential pollutants levels, meaning modelling assessments are often requested in support of Environmental Permit and planning applications.
REC can undertake comprehensive air quality monitoring which is often required to demonstrate compliance with set emission levels. Air quality monitoring assesses the suitability of the site for sensitive developments or determines potential air quality issues for inhabitants of new buildings.
Our expert air quality team carry out testing to the relevant British or International standards therefore providing the level of accuracy required and which can be relied upon.
Odour assessments often form part of new development proposals. Our assessments consider the effects odour may have on receptors close to the project along with assessing any existing conditions and thus identify the potential impact of odorous projects.
Odorous projects have the potential to cause loss of amenity and subsequent nuisance complaints. Therefore, undertaking odour assessments where required can ensure your project aims are achieved.
Mitigation advice forms a large part of our expert air quality services. REC provides project and bespoke mitigation measures to include designing in specific architectural features into your scheme to safeguard future occupants or users from the effects of air pollution.
In addition, we provide recommendations on measures to reduce the emissions generated by a proposed scheme to ensure that impacts are minimised.
