Our dedicated consultancy team provides expert dust and air quality services to a wide range of sectors including the minerals industry, waste management, public sector, residential, commercial, industrial, oil and gas, power, roads, railways and ports.

We have a well-established track record and pride ourselves in offering a professional service at a competitive price. Our approach to our assessments is based on a clear understanding of the statutory framework and common practice that should be applied to these matters. When required this is underpinned by high quality scientific investigation. 

We recognise that not all development will have a significant impact on local air quality and therefore it is not always necessary to carry out a detailed air quality assessment. We try to prepare our assessments so that they are accepted by local authorities at the first submission with minimal input to minimise the cost. We therefore always work closely with regulatory authorities and where possible, agree our scope in advance in order to avoid delays during the planning process.

We would be very pleased to hear from you if you would like to discuss your requirements or need any further information regarding our services.
