Legislation and regulations regarding air pollution are expanding and changing rapidly, as we become more aware of the dangers of releasing certain substances into the atmosphere and the health impacts that air pollution can have. Developers need to manage new and adapting regulations vigilantly to ensure compliance and maintain safe levels of emissions. RSK’s specialist Environment Health and Safety team offers air quality services at competitive rates, providing consultancy, design and engineering solutions for clients’ air quality, odour and dust challenges.
Innovative and responsive
We pride ourselves on our innovative technical delivery solutions and ability to work to tight schedules while maintaining an outstanding reputation in quality checks and technical robustness.
Our specialists across the UK, Europe and the Middle East can deliver impact assessments on air quality and odour, dispersion and air quality impact modelling, offshore platform air emission testing, and impact assessments and environmental permitting. We apply a deep understanding of regulations, legislation and guidance to support clients in achieving compliance efficiently and with minimal delays. RSK’s Environment, Health and Safety team directly influences land portfolio valuations, masterplan designs and successful planning applications.
Developers must manage many factors carefully to achieve sustainable, design-based solutions that comply with regulations. Regulations are variable and often affect the way deliverables are produced. RSK applies a flexible approach, complying with regulations while maintaining the technical robustness of solutions. Our ability to adapt to changes, including design inputs, legislations and guidance, gives us a distinct advantage over our competitors.
Wide range of services
As well as pollution regulations, developers must consider and manage schemes such as emissions trading. To gain commercial advantage and operational flexibility for clients, our dedicated team applies extensive knowledge and expertise of a wide range of project types and sizes. We support our clients by providing sustainable design-based solutions, consent evaluations and agreements, engineering solutions, helping in gaining planning permission, and positive stakeholder engagement. Thanks to our team’s wealth of knowledge, we are capable of providing solutions for a wide range of project types and clients, including planning applications-residential/commercial industrial, civils industry, occupational hygiene, emissions testing, transportation and linear infrastructure, oil and gas infrastructure, and government agencies such as the Environment Agency and Natural England. We can also act as expert witnesses and provide support in public inquiries and legal cases.
Air quality services are often necessary as part of environmental impact assessments, which RSK also offers as part of an integrated service. We also provide related services such as health impact assessments, community impact assessments, dust management plans, odour analysis, pollutant monitoring, pollutant analysis and development plans.
We pride ourselves on our consistently high-quality services and maintain excellent communication with our clients throughout their project.
