    In the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) industry, companies are constantly looking for additional site locations to bolster expansion. One of the many challenges they face during the development of new restaurant locations comes in the form of soil and groundwater contamination from legacy activities at or nearby these sites. This includes the risk of contaminant vapor intrusion from the subsurface into the indoor air of newly developed restaurant buildings.

    Because environmental regulators such as the US EPA have released regulations and screening levels for vapor intrusion, businesses in the QSR industry are responsible for mitigating vapor intrusion at their restaurants in order to protect their patrons from exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. Restaurant companies, then, are highly motivated to find solutions that mitigate vapor intrusion at their new buildings in order to protect human health, while doing it in a fashion that gets their restaurants up and running as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

Vapor intrusion mitigation for Quick Service Restaurants

Geo-Seal: The Most Effective Vapor Intrusion Barrier for the Quick Service Restaurant Industry

Geo-SealVapor intrusion barriers balance two key characteristics: chemical resistance, or how well the barrier protects against the chemical of concern; and constructability, the ability to effectively seal all entry pathways in a building. Geo-Seal®, a solution developed by Land Science, utilizes a patented composite membrane system combining the advantage of chemically resistant high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and the benefits of spray-applied membranes. Geo-Seal is proven safe and effective, and is accepted by state environmental agencies across the country and used extensively by Quick Service Restaurant companies and leading environmental firms world-wide. In addition, this innovative, cost-effective vapor barrier solution includes an industry-leading warranty, the lowest diffusion rates in the industry, and can be configured to include unique waterproofing systems.

Highlights of Geo-Seal’s effectiveness in developing Quick Service Restaurant sites:

  • Trusted solution by QSR developers
  • 1 Year Warranty (industry leading)
  • Highest level protection against contaminant vapor intrusion
  • Easy to install
  • Approved by regulators
  • Lowest total cost to closure

Trusted by Established QSR brands

Quick Service Restaurants

Over the years, our experience with the QSR and premium restaurant industries has shown that the installation of the Geo-Seal® vapor intrusion barrier has met, the requirements of the site and provided a safe environment for future QSR tenants of the property.

Use of Geo-Seal Vapor Intrusion Barrier at Quick Service Restaurant Sites in the Southeastern US

Land Science has recently released a quick study on the expanding use of Geo-Seal in the Southeastern United States. Because of its lower overall cost to closure as a vapor intrusion mitigation option, this solution is rapidly becoming the choice of retailers and Quick Service Restaurants in the region.

Highlights include:

  • Over 50 QSR sites in the region
  • 1-2 days average Geo-Seal installation for buildings of this site-type
  • Average site size: 4,000 sq. ft / Average cost per site: $16,000
  • Use of Geo-Seal reduced liability for businesses on average $325,000 – $375,000 per site

Combined Technologies Treat BTEX at Former Car Dealership in Texas

Texas is experiencing a building boom and real estate investors are eager to build multi-family apartments on available land. A well-known real estate developer recently purchased the site of a former car dealership where BTEX, TPHg and TPHd levels exceeded regulatory guidelines. The developer needed a quick and effective solution to mitigate the vapor intrusion present and turned to HRT Construction, an experienced contractor. The Geo-Seal and Vapor Vent systems were selected by HRT Construction to mitigate the vapor intrusion found.

Project Summary

Texas is experiencing a building boom and real estate investors are eager to build multi-family apartments on available land. A well-known real estate developer recently purchased the site of a former car dealership where BTEX, TPHg and TPHd levels exceeded regulatory guidelines. The developer needed a quick and effective solution to mitigate the vapor intrusion present and turned to HRT Construction, an experienced contractor. The Geo-Seal and Vapor Vent systems were selected by HRT Construction to mitigate the vapor intrusion found.

Technology Description

Geo-Seal is a vapor management technology designed to eliminate vapor intrusion found on environmentally-impaired sites. Geo-Seal is a chemically-resistant material placed between the foundation of the building and the soil pad to eliminate vapor intrusion pathways and stop contaminant vapors from permeating through the slab. The use of Geo- Seal allows developers to mitigate vapor intrusion risks and ensures a healthy indoor environment, while reducing the cost of site remediation and expediting site construction. Installing a Geo-Seal system offers developers a lower total cost to remediate and move redevelopment projects forward.
site details
Vapor-Vent is a low-profile vent system that can be used in lieu of slotted PVC pipe. The speed of installation and the proximity of the vent to the barrier provide cost savings and performance benefits compared to other technologies.

Results

HRT was able to successfully install Geo-Seal and Vapor-Vent on over 150,000 square feet. Vapor intrusion levels were addressed and the project moved forward with the development of a multi-family apartment complex.

Video Transcript
I am Jordan Kleine. I’m the Southeast Technical Manager for Land Science Division of Regenesis. I think one of the great things about Land Science and what sets us apart from other maybe vapor mitigation technology providers is that we are here for our clients through every stage of their project.

So, we’re not here just to sell our technologies. We’re here to help educate our clients and make sure that we’re really coming up with the best solution for them and their client, which may be the developer or the city that they’re working with.

One of the things that I love about working for Land Science is the fact that I get to utilize my undergraduate and my graduate degree that I got from Indiana University. I studied and received a Bachelor’s of Science in environmental management from Indiana University as well as a Master’s in public affairs. And so, it’s great that I get to really help protect the environment and human health, which is what my whole goal was going into getting those degrees.
