Emissions and Dust Assessments
Cornwall Land, Air and Water provide dust assessments and monitoring throughout the planning, site preparation, demolition, remediation and construction phases of any development.
We specialise in air quality monitoring and assessments
The key sectors we provide emissions and dust monitoring and assessments for are:
Many different types of dust can affect workers health
Fugitive dust may arise at all stages of construction. While the main focus of construction site monitoring is for PM10 and PM2.5, emissions of toxic gases and vapours can also be significant. The most common construction dusts are:
- Silica dust
- Wood dust (including MDF and plywood)
- Lower toxicity mineral dusts
- Cement dust
Dust and emissions from demolition and construction can impact on air quality and have significant effects on the health and quality of life on surrounding populations.
Health impacts from poor air quality can be serious
Health risks include:
- Lung cancer
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
We can monitor and model air quality throughout all stages of construction
We are able to provide bespoke air quality monitoring and measurement programmes for pre-construction baseline conditions of air quality through our extensive monitoring database. We also provide long term post construction monitoring for fugitive dust, construction dust and re-suspended particulates.
Whether your project requires simple screening of impacts, baseline monitoring, short or long-term monitoring please contact us.
