To support the range of DustScan monitoring products, we also specify, supply and install environmental monitoring equipment from other approved suppliers. We regularly employ:
In some circumstances ‘real-time’ air quality monitoring data is required and direct-reading fine particulate (PM10 and PM2.5) and gas (NO2 etc.) sampling equipment may be a conditional operating requirement for sites, especially for development sites in Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs). DustScanAQ regularly advises on monitoring best practices for sites in London where the Greater London Authority (GLA) Control of Dust and Emissions during Construction and Demolition supplementary planning guidance applies.
DustScanAQ regularly installs environmental monitoring equipment such as small on-site weather stations to provide local wind speed, wind direction, and rainfall data. These data can help predict the likely distribution of dust near sensitive receptors and also assist the interpretation of dust and air quality monitoring data. Weather data is critical for dust and air quality modelling and mapping studies.
