Indoor Air Quality

The number of incidents associated with ill health, discomfort and nuisance in the indoor environment is increasing. This is occurring at the same time as the indoor environment is becoming more complex and more enclosed.

Such incidents can have a very real effect on the efficiency and profitability of a business. The underlying causes behind these incidents are numerous and complex, that require specialist investigation and assessment. Hirst Consulting have a broad range of knowledge and experience in dealing with the indoor environment in the office, retail, industrial and domestic environments.

We use a range of tools to measure and diagnose problems:
  • Monitoring airborne contamination; dusts, gases, VOCs and biological agents
  • Measurement of thermal comfort indices
  • Measurement and modelling of airflows
  • Assessment of lighting levels and requirements
  • Assessment of work activities
  • Source characterisation.
Once an accurate diagnosis has been made we are able to recommend a variety of actions to bring about an improvement in the working environment.
