Why Choose Arbtech?

Arbtech are the best asset you can possibly have when you need ecology or tree surveys to help you obtain planning permission.

Looking for an Attested Air Quality Consultancy?

In the process of using heavy machinery, disrupting natural or man-made materials or operating in areas with limited clean air, new developments can suffer any number of issues from poor air quality or, in turn, create significant air pollution in a location with previously non-existent or minimal air quality issues.

If it becomes apparent that a planning project could deliver air quality impacts or suffer as a result of local air pollutants, it would be pertinent to begin planning a form of air quality assessment. Even the correct type of survey may be effectively invalid, however, if you fail to choose an air quality consultancy with insufficient experience, knowledge, licensing, expertise or insight to adequately assist your needs.

A High Standard Air Quality Consultancy

Balancing a large team of vastly experienced professionals alongside cutting-edge new talent, our air quality consultancy offers a range of services to the public and private sectors. The comprehensive service we offer is available across the UK, enabling us to provide advice on air quality as well as arboriculture, ecology, archaeology, noise quality and more to private and public sector clients in any location.

We operate with an immense emphasis on quality and speed, and we are so sure of our ability to deliver that we offer incentives that you won’t see anywhere else. For instance, we insist on a money-back guarantee in full at any point that a client sees their application for planning consent rejected by their local planning authority following a survey we’ve carried out. If you need an air quality report quicker based on the schedule of your development, we can also offer a next-day upgrade for receiving your completed report by 5 p.m. the next working day.

Each member of our air quality team is positioned in a different part of the country, giving us the scope to attend any site nationwide. Advanced and intimate knowledge of each designated area across the UK and the corresponding local councils gives our team a head start on offering you expert advice in your planning project, and by simply contacting us, we can talk you through the process and simplify any otherwise confusing jargon.

General Questions About Air Quality Consultancy

For more information on the services we offer, check out the section below, where we have answered common questions about our air quality consultancy, air quality consultants and air quality assessments:

What is Air Quality Consulting?

Our air quality consulting work stems from an ability to positively impact the early design process with a comprehensive service relating to air quality management. A wide range of different expert services are utilised to assist new developments prior to construction activities, and in terms of outdoor ambient air quality and indoor air quality, our surveys and assessments are tailored to deal with any issues caused by air pollution or a general lack of clean air, whether that comes as the result of development works or from the surrounding area.

According to both UK and European law, the health effects of air pollution through development and climate change are not to be ignored. The EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018 contains certain laws that regulate air quality, applying to the UK even after Brexit. In addition to that, the Gothenburg Protocol was also introduced in an effort to restrict pollutant levels, helped by the National Ceilings Directive 2018, 2016 and 2001. In addition, the Directive 2008/50/EC (the Air Quality Directive) serves the EU while the Air Quality Standards Regulations 2010 serves the UK.

National, European and international legislation limiting actions that could contribute to worsened air pollution levels is one of countless stumbling blocks in the process of completing a planning project. That said, with the help of an air quality consultancy such as ours, you will be able to provide the local authorities with a report that will ease any withstanding qualms and benefit planning applications. From odour assessments to air quality monitoring and from dust risk assessments to air quality statements, our team is equipped to deal with any issues affecting air quality.

Such air quality assessments include:

  • Air Quality Environmental Statement Chapters

Selecting an Air Quality Consultancy

Even with a service as niche as air quality assessments, it is understandable that a lot of thought would go into selecting a service provider with extensive experience and numerous examples of positive performance from previous clients. By choosing Arbtech, you are putting your trust in a company that is ranked as the number one ecological consultancy in the UK and possesses years of experience in conducting air quality services all over the country.

Our standards are assured by referring back to relevant organisations, legislators and groups, such as the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the European Commission (EC), the World Bank, and the World Health Organisation (WHO). Approaching each and every one of the air quality services we provide using the latest standards and guidance from applicable bodies gives our clients guarantees over our ethical and moral duty to them and demonstrates our overarching goal to offer the utmost quality and attention to detail.

Air Quality Consultants

More than any other factor, the air quality consultants within our team are what make our wide range of services so effective and highly regarded. In the section below, we’ve given more detail about what they do and how they are suited to overseeing the air quality management of your development project:

What Do Air Quality Consultants Do?

Disciplined in multiple areas that all relate to air quality in conjunction with planning, our air quality consultants are capable of leading our outdoor and indoor air quality assessments for clients. After years of undergoing training, obtaining licensing, achieving qualifications and gaining experience, each of our air quality team is fully capable of satisfying the needs of relevant laws, the corresponding local authorities, and a client’s bespoke needs.

Through the latest technology such as air quality modelling via the use of dispersion modelling, utilisation of advisory services, community engagement, feasibility studies and an in-depth comprehension of the natural and built environment, you can depend on our team to exhibit a top-quality service. Any issues that could potentially affect amenity, human health, planning applications or even simply the ability to see a development move forward will be factored into an air quality consultant’s strategy as an expert witness on a project.

Air Quality Consultant Qualifications

In the process of becoming sufficiently prepared to direct clients on matters that affect air quality – and as a result, have the potential to affect health – an air quality consultant must first obtain certain qualifications. The connection between science, planning and even human health points towards an array of possibly suitable courses, such as a BSc, MSc or PdD in engineering, environmental sciences or sustainability.

As for the air quality consultants we work with, an emphasis is placed on ensuring that the correct qualifications have been attained, but with the option of growing their collection of certificates using our unlimited continuing professional development (CPD) incentive. Other areas involved in inspections of air quality and air pollutants often mean that additional learning is necessary, such as for providing design advice, carrying out detailed modelling, assisting in the permit application process, and undertaking further assessments like environmental impact assessments.
