Environmental Monitoring

Construction has a responsibility to manage noise and air quality whilst performing its vital role in improving and futureproofing our communities.

Protecting wellbeing and minimising disruption on neighbouring communities is important to everyone.

Contractors and site-management companies have a responsibility to deliver acceptable standards of environmental performance around noise, vibration and dust as they carry out critical demolition and construction works.

We help demolition and construction companies fulfil their legal obligations, comply with environmental regulations and enhance their ESG credentials through our construction noise and dust risk assessments, and ongoing monitoring programmes.

Combining real-time monitoring and intelligent web-based management and compliance tools, we enable site teams to take corrective action before noise, vibration and dust limits are breached. The outputs of our monitoring can be accessed online 24/7 and are complemented by a range of management tools that provide alerts and guidance on compliance reporting.

We will help you avoid the suspension of site activities, the enforcement of onerous working restrictions and complaints which can escalate to formal action being taken.

With our expertise and pragmatic approach to monitoring and management, we are protecting communities and keeping this sector on course to ultimately improve and future proof our built environment.
