Environmental monitoring

When developing any site, understanding risk is a vital first step. Data is crucial to inform decision making and implement strategies to mitigate risk.

Our monitoring team operates independently to our consultancy, providing monitoring contracting services where necessary with the benefit of being able to collaborate with our expert consultants.

EPG offers cost-effective monitoring solutions that align with environmental compliance and best practices, ensuring optimal value. We deliver specialised and independent field monitoring and sampling services worldwide.

We provide ground gas sampling and monitoring, ensuring a thorough understanding of sub-surface conditions. Additionally, our expertise extends to soil vapour sampling and monitoring, encompassing rigorous integrity testing protocols. Groundwater sampling and monitoring are integral components of our services, providing valuable insights into sub-surface water quality.

Surface water sampling and monitoring further demonstrate our commitment to a holistic approach, comprehensively addressing environmental concerns. Our proficiency in surface emission walkover surveys, including flux chamber testing, enables us to meticulously assess emissions and their impact. These capabilities underscore our dedication to delivering thorough, reliable, and state-of-the-art environmental solutions for our clients.

Our highly skilled team implements on-site sampling, testing, and environmental measurements, collaborating with laboratories as necessary to deliver complex projects.

Data driven solutions

Our starting point is to thoroughly understand the finer details of the site and what this will mean for your project, allowing us to provide options of monitoring methods most suited to you.  Depending on our findings, we can modify our approach and adapt immediately to the situation.  Data drives our thought process and helps contextualise the next steps.

Always following best practice

Our team is actively involved in committees that draft standards in the UK and overseas. We are consistently up to speed with the latest technologies and innovative methods, ensuring clients have the latest technology and guidance at their disposal.

Finding solutions to complex issues  

Complex problems often require complex solutions, but that doesn’t mean they should jeopardise the financial viability of a project. EPG can design and carry out monitoring programmes that discharge planning conditions while building robust lines of evidence to assist in mitigation designs or remediation specifications, decreasing the overall project cost by removing or limiting over-conservative and onerous monitoring programmes.

Environmental permit support 

Environmental permits can be costly to maintain with annual fees and penalties for non-conformance. The EPG team has experience of meeting permit requirements, amending and discharging permits and supporting clients in moments of breach by identifying other sources or contributing factors. We work collaboratively with clients and the Environment Agency to significantly decrease their burden, or remove it all together.


EPG has the resource to mobilise globally if required and can respond in the UK within 24 hours. We work with our supply chain to ensure sampling consumables and equipment is available so we can provide emergency responses to incidents or meet the demands of expectant developers, regulators or other stakeholders.
