When you begin a construction project, there are several aspects of that project that can affect the environment and air quality. Some contractors will have a quality or quantity specialist on staff to help analyze these affects and ways to avoid them while keeping the cost within budget. Though this does help, there is another step that can offer increased benefits to the project, especially where air quality may be concerned.
Before you start your next project, consider the air quality services that every construction project should use:
Air Emission Testing
One of the first steps that an air quality services technician can take on a construction project is to perform an air emission test. This ideally is to check the equipment that will be used and how the emissions from that equipment will effect the environment and air quality during the construction and for a short time following the end of the project.
This can let you gauge if the emissions will fall outside of the local guidelines for toxic and exhaust emissions. If the testing shows issues, you can take the time to fix them before the project begins.
Air Quality Monitoring
If you are trying to stay within a certain guideline range for your air quality on a project then monitoring the quality is vital. You have to make sure that everything is working together to ensure not only the air quality indoors, but also outdoors for any workers or people who may live or operate near the construction site.
By hiring an air quality services technician, you can have the air monitored 24 hours a day from the beginning to the end of the project. The monitoring software will let the technician know if there is a problem. They, in turn, can let you know or move to a set process to fix the issue.
Structural Air Quality
If part of your project is to construct a building such as an office space or living area, then the quality of the air in the final project is as important as the air in the environment during construction. Before the project is declared as a success and finished, an air quality service technician will analyze the buildings air system to determine if the air is flowing properly, has a high level of contaminants, and that it is being filtered properly.
These are just three of the air quality services every construction project should use. If you have more air quality concerns, contact your services department today for a project analysis.
