What is Environmental Monitoring?

During construction and demolition projects, the presence of environmental pollutants should always be expected.

Contractors are legally required to manage the impact of these levels and comply with environmental plans, permits, and other regulations.

CTS Works closely with major contractors, local authorities, developers, property owners, remediation contractors, and house builders. Our environmental monitoring services provide detection and monitoring of ground waters, soil, and air including laboratory analysis. This helps to maintain a healthy and safe environment both during and after completion of projects.

  • Monitoring of vibrating wire piezometers (measurement of pore water pressure)
  • Wind, temperature and rainfall monitoring

3D noise simulation

As part of our environmental monitoring service, our colleagues at Silkstone Environmental use specialist noise monitoring software to produce a full 3D simulation for noise generated during site development or activity. 

Results are based upon inputted variables such as frequency spectrum data for the equipment used during the site activity as well as their location.
