Subcontracting for environmental nuisance issues
Knowing when to ask for help is a valuable business skill in itself. Additional or specialist input can make a big difference to a complex piece of work. Major civil and industrial engineering projects, for example, can really benefit when consulting engineers call on specialist services to develop them.
Subcontracting work has its potential pitfalls, however. It goes without saying that it’s important to make sure that a high-quality service is delivered, within an agreed timeframe and at a competitive cost. And it’s also crucial, of course, to avoid conflict of interest or potential commercial overlap. That’s why, as a specialist focusing exclusively on environmental nuisance issues (odour and noise), Odournet is an ideal partner for general consulting engineers in these situations.
How can we help?
Odournet can provide high-level input to larger projects where odour, air quality and/or noise need consideration. Our contribution can be anything from a straightforward measurement of odour emissions when commissioning or troubleshooting installations to a comprehensive contribution of odour chapters to an environmental licence application.
Need to know more?
Since the introduction of the integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC) directive, it has been a requirement to quantify the impacts of odour and noise for all processes that fall within the scope of IPPC and where odour or noise are relevant.
