Environmental Noise Monitoring

Class 1 Noise Monitors for long or short term monitoring on construction sites


We are an independent dust and air quality consultancy, with dust monitoring becoming increasingly common to monitor the Air Quality levels being generated during demolition, construction and heavy vehicle movement on sites. Environmental monitoring is frequently requested by the Local Authorities before work can commence to establish the baseline levels, long term Dust monitoring can then be required for the duration of the project. We have a huge and well-supported hire fleet of well maintained modern monitors.

Our Tracer batteries come in a robust IP67 weather-resistant Peli case with a battery meter that shows the remaining charge.


Environmental monitoring with the help of dust, noise, and vibration sensors is crucial for ensuring the safety and well-being of workers and the community living near construction sites. By proactively monitoring and addressing environmental concerns, construction companies can minimize any negative impacts and maintain a healthy and sustainable working environment.

Overall, environmental monitoring helps ensure that construction projects are carried out in a sustainable and responsible manner, minimising harm to the environment and enhancing the overall quality of life for the community. It also helps companies maintain a positive reputation and avoid potential legal issues related to environmental compliance.

Current Legislation for Environmental Air Quality (Dust) Monitoring

The Institute of Air Quality Management (IAQM 2018) - Guidance on Monitoring in the Vicinity of Demolition and Construction Sites – The approach to monitoring is based on the risk rating for the demolition / construction site. The guidance recommends the use of a revised real-time measurement site action level of 190 µg/m³ (1-hour average).

GLA Guidance - The Mayor's Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) - The control of dust and emissions during construction and demolition includes site monitoring protocols depending on the risk category of the site. The GLA guidance replicates the IAQM 2014 risk assessment matrix and associated control measures and monitoring requirements based on the level of risk of dust emissions.

Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 and Environmental Permitting 2010 which together govern the Environment Agency (EA) Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) and Local Authority Pollution Prevention & Control (LAPPC)

What is Microgrammes per cubic metre (µg/m3)

A measure of concentration in terms of mass per unit volume. A concentration of 1 µg/m3 means that one cubic metre of air contains one microgram (10-6 grams) of pollutant
