Featured Case Study: TerraShield Mitigates Vapor Intrusion on Former Industrial Site
A former industrial site located in Southern California was targeted for redevelopment and chosen to be developed into a federally funded public site. Historical operations left the original property contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In addition to the presence of these contaminants, new buildings constructed in the area are required to feature a vapor intrusion mitigation system due to the presence of methane gas in the soil, which may eventually enter unprotected buildings on the surface. Because of these factors and the completed site’s intended purpose for public use, an effective vapor mitigation system was necessary.

Learning Lab Demonstration with Hieu Nguyen, Principal Engineer, at the AVIP VI Conference
Attending the AVIP VI Conference in Nashville, TN October 9th-11th? Be sure to attend Land Science’s Learning Lab conducted by Hieu Nguyen titled “Best Practices for Quality Assurance/Quality Control for Passive Barrier Installations at New and Existing Buildings.” Hieu will conduct a 15-minute demonstration that reviews the recommended quality control practices for membrane installation at both new and existing buildings. This training will focus on quality control steps to measure spray-applied barrier thickness, and verify seam integrity and physical properties of composite barriers during field installation. The demonstration will include a hands-on display where attendees can witness and test vapor barriers on aggregate to simulate field installation procedures. Contact Jordan Knight to receive $50 off your VI Conference registration. We hope to see you there!
