Accon Uk Ltd

Accon UK are a leading environmental consultancy providing commercial and industrial services across a wide range of disciplines including noise pollution, contaminated land, air quality, vibration and flood risk.

  1. Air Quality Assessment

    Air Quality Assessment

    As with other site developments, the importance of reducing or mitigating air pollutants, particularly in respect of those adjacent to populous areas, are key, more so in urban areas, such as London where there are a significant number of AQMA's (Air Quality Management Areas). There are usually two basic categories for air quality assessment, Site Suitability for residential development adjacen to an existing AQMA; and Impact Assessment, an investigation to determine if new industrial or commercial chnages are likely to cause a significant impact upon this and adjacent areas to the point it could be declared as a new AQMA.

  2. Contaminated Land

    Contaminated Land

    Contaminated land services fall into three basic stages; Phase 1 Desk Studies to identify and current and historical pollution sources. Site Investigation is Phase 2 to carry out intrusive site visits to validate the potential problems identified in the desk study; samples are taken particularly when the desk study indicated Significant Pollution Linkages being present.

    Phase 3, Remediation, is the process for working through a structured methodology including liaison and action plans with local and regulatory authorities to ensure the agreed site remediation program is carried out as recommended.

  3. Ecological Assessment

  6. Flood Risk

    Flood Risk

    Flood Risk Assessment or FSA's are growing in demand as climate changes impact more and more land areas of the UK, resulting in what once was described as a 'once-in-a-lifetime' flooding occurring at regular even annual instances.

    We can provide scoping reports, provide detailed reports in respect of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)and advice on planning applications.We can also provide detailed analysis and reports on Fluvial and Pluvial flood data, surface flooding run-off including mapping of minor rivers, water channels, raised groundworks etc which all contribute to the overall flood risk pattern.

  7. Noise Consultants

    Environmental noise consultants providing a wide scope of noise related services including industrial, commercial and construction markets

  8. Noise Pollution Consultants

    Noise Pollution Consultants

    Noise pollution impacts more and more upon all of us as our industrial and commercial expansion continues to push new boundaries, creating opportunities but far too often noise pollution infringes and disrupts normal working patterns, creating direct and indirect problems; with an experienced team of over 40 years standing, we can liaise with architects, engineers, planners and clients to mitigate and reduce the levels of noise to within or below acceptable levels.
