The sustainability and environmental impact of a new build house is typically assessed using BREEAM. Part of the BREEAM assessment method is determining the air quality inside the house.
Gradko can supply a range of products for qualified BREEAM assessors. We try to work with qualified BREEAM assessors to determine and meet their requirements.
The products we normally supply are used for monitoring formaldehye and VOC levels in new build properties.
Ambient air quality monitoring is the systematic, long-term assessment of pollutant levels by measuring the concentration and types of certain pollutants in the surrounding, outdoor air. Some of these pollutants (commonly called ‘Criteria Pollutants’) are considered hazardous to human health and their levels are regulated by government agencies around the world, including the US EPA. Teledyne API provides a complete line of ambient air quality monitoring instruments, including those for both gas and...
We provide consultancy on aviation and air quality, such as dispersion modelling and emissions inventory compilation for environmental impact assessment at airports. We also conduct research into aviation.
UFP exposure in urban areas may be dependent on the selected mode of operation. In this study (carried out by Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research Barcelona Spain and DICeMï¿½University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, Cassino Italy) 78 trips with walking, bus, tram and subway have been assessed. The particle concentration proved to be lowest in subway travel, and highest while travelling in diesel bus. City centre traffic crossings show particle transient peaks above 1ï&iq...
Indoor air quality can be affected by many factors, such as gases, particulates and microbial contaminants. These factors can have serious health impacts and influence on the comfort of building occupants. Therefore, monitoring and analysis of indoor air is important for assessing potential health impact. One objective of the assessment is to ensure that the concentrations in the working environment do not exceed the maximum Permissible Emission Limit (PEL) values.
The role of quality assurance in aerospace manufacture is becoming increasingly important. These inspections require the use of borescopes allowing engineers to properly and thoroughly assess different units of an aircraft: Turbines and engines, combustion chambers, low/high pressure compressors, wings, foils, cells etc.
