People at The Airshed
The Airshed Ltd is an independent company that will will act wholly on your behalf in dealings with planning authorities, regulatory bodies and government agencies. Our aim is to secure technical agreement with EHO's, planners, etc. so that air quality, odour and noise issues are not reasons for refusing your planning application. For Pollution Prevention and Control applications our approach is to help our clients determine what is Best Available Technique without imposing unrealistic constraints on their process.
Our mission is to provide environmental consulting services that are so good that our clients come back for more. We handle each issue quickly, thoroughly and smoothly so that our clients have peace of mind. We will not sell you services you don't need or 'roll over' when regulators are being over zealous. We work by building trust with our clients and environmental regulatory agencies. We recognise the importance of a good ethical approach to consultancy where advice is independent and objective.
