Raleigh Development Protected By TerraShield

Project snapshot highlights:

  • Efficiently installed 100,000 square feet of TerraShield, ensuring timely project completion.
  • Provided robust protection against vapor intrusion from contaminants.
  • Contributed to alleviating Raleigh’s housing shortage by enabling safe redevelopment of industrial land.

In Raleigh, NC, a new multi-family development required protection against vapor intrusion risks from nearby industrial contaminants. TerraShield Contaminant Vapor Barrier was chosen for its proven chemical protection. A Land Science certified applicator efficiently installed 100,000 square feet of TerraShield, adhering to quality assurance protocols. This project not only addressed the housing shortage but also ensured long-term safety for residents through effective vapor intrusion mitigation.

North Carolina Residential Community Protected by Nitra-Seal

Project snapshot highlights:

  • Efficient installation of 134,350 square feet of Nitra-Seal despite challenging weather conditions.
  • Successfully met tight construction schedules, saving time and money.
  • Ensured long-term protection from contaminants like TCE, benzene, and metals.

A multi-family residential development in North Carolina, constructed near a former industrial area with TCE, benzene, and metal contamination, required a robust vapor barrier to mitigate vapor intrusion risks. The Nitra-Seal Nitrile Advanced Contaminant Vapor Barrier system was chosen for its chemical protection and cost-effectiveness. Despite heavy rains and a complex installation process, 134,350 square feet of Nitra-Seal were installed on schedule by a Land Science Certified Applicator, ensuring future residents’ safety and compliance with regulatory standards.

Nitra-Seal Enables Brownfield Redevelopment

Project snapshot highlights:

  • Successfully transformed a historic mill site into affordable housing, ensuring occupant safety from vapor intrusion.
  • Demonstrated flexibility in remediation strategies by adapting to specific contaminant concerns.
  • Implemented a comprehensive vapor mitigation approach with Nitra-Seal®, proving efficient and cost-effective.

A historic mill site in Greenville, SC, was successfully redeveloped into a residential complex with 214 affordable housing units. The site had trichloroethene (TCE) contamination, and to protect future residents from vapor intrusion risks, a Nitra-Seal Nitrile-Advanced vapor barrier system was installed. The project involved close coordination between Land Science, an environmental consultant, and a certified applicator to ensure efficient installation and compliance with quality standards. The redevelopment provides much-needed housing while repurposing a former brownfield site sustainably.
