Air Quality Assessments

Fast efficient service provided by independent experts

Aether provides an efficient service to produce bespoke Air Quality Assessment reports. We have many years of experience in undertaking these assessments for domestic, commercial and industrial developments. The assessments can be standalone reports or form part of an Environmental Impact Assessment.

This work builds on our active involvement in the review of Local Authority Air Pollution reports for the Government, our expert review of air quality assessments for planning applications submitted to the Greater London Authority and development of guidance.

Residential and commercial

Aether has completed numerous air quality assessments in recent years, ranging from assessments for small-scale residential conversions to large mixed use developments.

Other examples include schools and nurseries, hospitals and hotels. These have been in the form of either screening assessments or detailed dispersion modelling, depending on the level of concern about air quality. From project start, Aether liaises with both the client and local authority officers in order to determine the assessment requirements, enabling a fast turnaround of reports that adhere to best practice guidance.
