Ambient Air Survey

Ambient Air Survey

Surveying how your building 'breathes'

Understanding how air flows in and out of your building and the quality of that air is the first step towards designing systems that help you control improvements in the energy and occupational performance of your building relating to air.

Monitoring Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) for health and productivity

The internal air quality in a building; whether conditioned or transient, will be a factor of the following:

  • Its source.
  • How it has been used.
  • Its destination.
  • Its relative balance of chemical constituents.
  • Contaminants, pollutants and particulates

 

Our ambient air survey will help you asses the IAQ of your building. We can help you understand, control and evaluate the air in your building allowing you to improve energy efficiency and the health of your building's occupants.  We use a range of test equipment to measure various factors of IAQ performance; temperature, wind speed, pressure, airborne particulate, mould, gases and VOCs and this creates a holistic view of your environment. We collate all the data and present you with a comprehensive report profiling the IAQ of your building 

We can assess and consult on best practice for air control, distribution, mechanical ventilation and evacuation, ensuring your business delivers energy efficiency, occupant well-being and remains compliant with IAQ Health and Safety regulations.   

 

What the Law Requires:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires that employers, provide and maintain a working environment that is safe and without risk to health.
  • The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) requires risk assessment and prevention of exposure to substances hazardous to health by using suitable control measures which include general ventilation.
  • The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, requires that mechanical ventilation systems used for providing general ventilation are maintained including cleaned as appropriate, in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair. Regulations also require that you ensure effective ventilation for any enclosed workplace by providing a sufficient quantity of fresh or purified air.
