Radon is typically reduced by installing a system that creates a vacuum beneath the structure which is larger in strength that the vacuum applied to the underlying soil by the building itself. This method (active soil depressurization) collects the radon laden soil gases before they enter a building and exhausts them to a safe location above the building. The success of this approach depends upon the ability to draw air from beneath the foundation, which in-turn is dependent upon soil permeability, obstructions such as grade beams, and foundation walls. The proper location of suction points is critical in developing a cost-effective approach.
Although building plans are helpful, field work is often necessary to simulate an actual system to determine the best location or required number of suction points.
CVC technicians are very experienced in performing field diagnostics that form the basis for successful radon mitigation.
CVC's final design reports are clear and concise with sufficient detail for obtaining fixed bids from qualified contractors. CVC's approach of providing non-scaled drawings, aided by annotated digital photographs, has been extremely cost-effective. CVC has also developed designs for implementation by the client's maintenance personnel. This has been very effective for school district staff.
