Project Snapshot | TerraShield Chosen as Most Protective Economical Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Solution for Large Logistics Facility

A long-vacant San Francisco Bay Area brownfield was once the site of a former chemical plant that produced chlorofluorocarbons, fuel additive anti-knock compounds, and titanium dioxide from 1956 to 1997. With onsite rail service and more than three million households within 50 miles, the property was considered a prime location for a new 2.2 million square foot logistics development. However, the site’s prior industrial history left residual volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the subsurface and posed a potential vapor intrusion risk. Following a cost-benefit analysis and thorough evaluation of contaminant vapor barrier systems available, TerraShield® Metalized Nitrile Contaminant Vapor Barrier was selected for the new logistics building

Featured Brochure | Superior Chemical Resistance Over any Vapor Barrier on the Market

The Land Science research and development team of scientists have invested years in developing the TerraShield vapor barrier system, which delivers orders of magnitude higher vapor intrusion protection as compared to the leading vapor barrier system. The new, innovative, metalized material and multiple layers of protection are key to the increased performance. The R&D team also improved on the core material, incorporating nitrile, known for its chemical resistance, as a key component. The result is a 100 times more effective protection as compared to existing vapor barriers in recent laboratory tests.

Newly Patented Vapor Barrier System Incorporates Metalized Film to Offer 100x Chemical Resistance 

Land Science was recently awarded a U.S. patent for the innovative use of a reinforced geomembrane comprised of an encapsulated, metalized layer and installed with Nitra-Core, a spray-applied nitrile-modified asphalt. This patented innovation is integral to the enhanced protection built into MonoShield and TerraShield. As part of the U.S. patent process, Land Science scientists presented lab testing data that compared the design of the new vapor intrusion barrier technology to commonly used high-density polyethylene (HDPE) systems, and found that TerraBase+ provided 100 times more protection from TCE vs. the HDPE tested.

Client Spotlight: Glenn Burks, Principal Environmental Engineer and Director of Environmental Services for Group Delta Consultants

Glenn Burks Group DeltaWhen it comes to utilizing a skillset that includes operational leadership, teamworking and mentoring, Glenn Burks, Principal Environmental Engineer and Director of Environmental Services for Group Delta Consultants, appears to be checking all the right boxes. He begins, “I believe my skills lie in establishing strong and successful local operations, both from an operations and culture standpoint, and then scaling that up to regional offices. My experience thus far has had a positive impact on both our success, and where I hope to be in the future.” Burks joined Group Delta nearly 10 years ago after working as a Project Manager and Sr. Project Manager for several environmental remediation firms. In his current role at Delta, he manages the Environmental Division, and is responsible for overall division finances, recruiting, business development and final technical QA/QC of work products. He continues, “I perform the final QA/QC review on all Phase I Environmental Site Assessments due to the potential risk associated with the purchase of properties. Depending upon the project, I also provide technical reviews of environmental site assessment and remediation close out reports, given my expertise in this area. Lastly, I also provide expert support to attorneys involved in litigation associated with contaminated properties, and contribute to new business development.”

In preparing for a career in environmental remediation, Burks earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California San Diego. He later added his Master’s and PhD in Environmental Engineering from UCLA. To stay current with new technology and emerging trends, he is an active member of the ASTM Committee developing the National Guidance for Green Remediation  (E2893-16: ASTM Standard Guide for Greener Cleanups). He shares, “I remain engaged with leading experts in Green Remediation and am exposed to the latest technologies and best management practices. I am also very active in following regulatory advances and treatment technologies related to the most important emerging contaminant in the last decade: Per – and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).”

With regard to working with REGENESIS®, Burks says most of his experience is with Land Science®, in the design and installation of subsurface barriers. “While the bulk of my work is with Land Science, REGENESIS is well known and respected in the industry and provides effective products for soil and groundwater remediation of most contaminants we find in the environment. I look forward to working with both REGENESIS and Land Science in the years to come.” He feels the success of his division is due, in part, to the unique culture that exists. He shares, “We have been successful as a division because we empower ALL employees in business development and foster a very entrepreneurial operation. Not all ideas stick, but we have grown to a formidable operation because of our aggressive approach.  I very much enjoy mentoring younger staff and observing them succeed because when they succeed, I succeed!”

Burks became interested in environmental remediation after first working in the oil refining sector, before realizing he wanted to pivot and assist in helping the environment. He shares, “My first job following USCD was serving as a Process Engineer for Fluor Daniel. There I designed and optimized various processes at oil refineries and petrochemical facilities. Although the work was very challenging and highly variable, I eventually came to the conclusion I did not want the end result of my work effort to pollute the environment.”

When asked what he sees in the future for his industry, he says it’s all about PFAS. “Without question, the investigation and remediation of PFAS-contaminated sites is the next big wave in environmental consulting.” Living in the south Orange County community of Mission Viejo, CA,  Burks finds time for a variety of hobbies and outdoor activities, including open water swimming competitions, including the Alcatraz Sharkfest. He continues, “I love to swim and compete in open water swimming events. Swimming the San Francisco Bay from Alcatraz Island to the Aquatic Park Cove in San Francisco requires disciplined training and a fair amount of courage and/or stupidity to move past the fear of sharks (there are no sharks in the bay). This event is also particularly meaningful to me because I swim with my daughter who first swam it when she was 15 years old! Helping her get past her fears of swimming in open and very cold water paid off after seeing her exult when we completed the race. For travel, my favorite destinations include Sweden in the winter to skate on the frozen ocean along the coast near Stockholm, the Caldas de Gerez National Park in Portugal, and Northeast Africa, where I once lived for two years in Eritrea.” He also finds time to volunteer mentoring environmental studies students at UCI, and lectures in their “Careers Course” program.

And what does Burks find to be the most rewarding aspect of his work? “Most certainly it is working with our team of highly intelligent and competent engineers, geologists and environmental scientists and feeding off their energy and accomplishments. My greatest enjoyment is derived from seeing others that I have assisted and/or mentored succeed and reach their goals. I strongly believe giving our staff ownership of projects and the responsibilities that go along with the ownership is the most effective way to build a team of technically challenged and content employees and, ultimately, a financially successful firm.” How would he encourage others to join his field of study? He concludes, “I would strongly recommend getting degrees in geology or civil/environmental engineering and work for a few years before going back for a Master’s degree, and specialize in a particular field that you enjoy. You’ll never know if you excel in a particular field unless you try it. So go out into the real world and get exposed to as many projects and activities as possible!

REGENESIS is proud to recognize Glenn Burks, Principal Environmental Engineer and Director of Environmental Services for Group Delta Consultants, as a valued client and partner in environmental remediation, and they appreciate his contributions and leadership in providing successful remediation outcomes for REGENESIS and Land Science, and its clients.

Nitra-Seal Protects Multi-Acre Tampa Logistics Center

This project snapshot features the following:

  • 245,000 square foot installation eliminates vapor intrusion threat to future tenants
  • Land Science’s technical expertise and support in assisting with the VIMS design were critical factors in the selection process
  • High level of vapor intrusion protection ensured for future logistics center workers and office staff

A new, expansive logistics center in Tampa, Florida, was the site of a former brownfield, where past operations left petroleum hydrocarbons and methane contaminants in soil and groundwater. The project required a cost effective solution to mitigate the potential vapor intrusion risk from these contaminants. After reviewing multiple vapor intrusion mitigation system (VIMS) options, the project team ultimately selected the Nitra-Seal® NitrileAdvanced Contaminant Vapor Barrier and TerraVent™ Low Profile Venting System. Nitra-Seal was viewed as the best available, most cost-efficient technology for the large logistics center considering the site conditions and level of contaminant risk. With a foundation approaching a quarter million square feet, and a tight project schedule, Nitra-Seal’s nitrile-modified sprayapplied core results in faster installations, while also providing superior chemical protection, separating it from other VI systems considered. Land Science’s technical expertise and support in assisting with the VIMS design were also critical factors in the selection process.

Nitra-Seal Installed at Large Chicago E-Commerce Distribution Center

This project snapshot features the following:

  • Seamless coordination kept the 4.4-acre installation ahead of schedule for the fast-moving project
  • 190,000 Square Feet of Nitra-Seal Installed
  • New e-commerce distribution center met the IEPA’s TACO guidelines for mitigating the VI exposure pathway and the tenant’s requirements for a healthy built environment

With little to no green sites to develop in the Chicagoland area, many new building projects occur in former industrial areas that have been environmentally impacted. Such was the case for a new 190,000 squarefoot e-commerce distribution center constructed with a Nitra-Seal® Nitrile-Advanced Contaminant Vapor Barrier and TerraVent™ Low Profile Venting System to address the potential for vapor intrusion (VI). The advanced vapor barrier system met the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s (IEPA’s) Tiered Approach to Corrective Action Objectives (i.e., TACO) for remediating the VI exposure pathway.

Risk and Liability – Part 2: Vapor Intrusion Mitigation and Managing Liabilities

This webinar is the second in a two-part webinar series featuring Eric Leitz, Director of Legacy Site Services at RPS Group. His presentation discussed risk and managing liabilities, taking a look at vapor intrusion. He was joined by Ryan Miller, East Region Manager at Land Science.


Part 2: Risk and Liability – Vapor Intrusion Mitigation and Managing Liabilities

  • Similar to PFAS as an “emerging contaminant,” VI was an “emerging pathway” in the early to mid-2000s
  • What have we learned since: a patchwork of state regulations
  • For transactions and industry, the driver is exposure risk rather than liability and specific regulations
  • VI risk evaluation is still evolving (TCE, maybe PFAS?)
  • Immediate investigation/mitigation can facilitate operations or transactions, but mitigation must also endure 5-10+ years to provide long-term viability

When suspected or known VI risk is identified at a site, liability can be managed through well-established assessment and mitigation options. However, transactional work often necessitates an accelerated plan for liability management, where a pragmatic approach is needed to quickly analyze VI liabilities and quantify potential risks and consequences. VI risk to the exposed population (e.g., facility personnel and/or the public) is typically the main driver. Given these factors, VI liability estimates can be generated to not only guide the transaction process, but also manage the liability post-close and into the future.

Client Spotlight: David Hanley, Hanley Environmental

When David Hanley, Principal Engineer and founder of Hanley Environmental, PLLC, formed his own firm, he felt the environmental remediation industry was ripe for a smaller engineering and consulting services company that was both agile and responsive. He begins, “I founded Hanley Environmental because I felt there was an opportunity to provide a high level of individualized service, responsiveness, and creative problem solving for clients, along with creating unique opportunities for talented employees.” At Hanley Environmental, David and his team provide a broad range of environmental engineering and consulting services. One focus area is preparing engineering designs for vapor intrusion mitigation systems that allow for the redevelopment of contaminated sites, and provide an environmental solution for ensuring safe breathing air for building occupants. In addition, Hanley Environmental regularly partners with other environmental consulting firms on brownfield redevelopment projects to provide these engineering designs. He continues, “I think the growing market for vapor intrusion mitigation system design services created a recipe for success. I’ve recently expanded our engineering support to keep up with the workload, and we’re seeing repeat business from satisfied clients.”

Prior to founding Hanley Environmental, David worked in similar environmental engineering consulting roles with several large environmental consulting firms. His university studies culminated with a BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan, and his MS in Environmental Engineering, also from the University of Michigan. He says initially, the multi-disciplinary aspects of remediation work are what attracted him to a career in environmental remediation. He shares, “Our work is often completed alongside larger construction and redevelopment projects or industrial operations, so working with other disciplines involved is important for a successful project- I like this aspect. I also like that we are applying knowledge related to chemical, biological, and physical processes that create tangible results by cleaning up the land.” To stay abreast of emerging trends and technologies, he often attends in-person conferences. “With professional engineering licenses in 7 states, keeping up with continuing education takes some effort. I recently attended the Association of Vapor Intrusion Professionals (AVIP) conference where I gave a presentation on designing vapor intrusion mitigation systems. I was impressed with the quality of content at the conference and the collective expertise of the people there.”

In working with Land Science®, David appreciates the advanced level of technical support he receives when it comes to solving difficult vapor intrusion projects, and as a division of REGENESIS,® demonstrates a deeper understanding of issues involving remediation sites, beyond a typical provider of contaminant vapor barrier systems. He continues, “I’ve had a good experience working with Land Science from the design phase when selecting contaminant vapor intrusion barrier solutions, as well as troubleshooting issues in the field during construction. The Land Science team is easily accessible. As a small firm, we rely on the expertise of specialized partners like Land Science on our projects.” When it comes to working with specific Land Science products and solutions, MonoShield® has been used with success. He shares, “I appreciate MonoShield as a product that provides chemical resistance in a durable single-layer system, with the advantage of spray-applied seams, penetrations, and terminations. With spray-applied seams, this system has the benefit of a continuous, airtight barrier at a competitive price point. As a big believer in the importance of construction quality assurance/quality control, the fact that Land Science’s product installations are approved by certified inspectors is important to me.” With his firm’s recent success in vapor intrusion mitigation design, David feels Hanley Environmental is on pace to achieve its long-term goals. He adds, “If our clients keep coming back and we’re having fun doing the work, we’re on the right track.”

When asked what he likes most in his work, David says it’s all about creating safe environments. He shares, “Our work is rewarding because it ensures a safe place for people to live and work in areas that might not have been considered for redevelopment in the past due to environmental impacts. I enjoy visiting buildings that include our contaminant vapor mitigation systems after they are opened to see the tangible results of our work.” And the most demanding aspect of his work? “On design and construction projects schedules can be demanding, and design services are usually performed under a tight timeline. During construction, changing schedules are common. Our work is usually a small but important piece of a much larger project, and we work hard to make sure it is implemented smoothly.”

With Charlotte, NC serving as both a home and work base, David works on a variety of sites around the country. Outside of work, much of his time revolves around family. “With two kids in diapers and a thriving business, it’s mostly work and family time.” When he can, he enjoys mountain biking on trails around Charlotte, and traveling with his wife. “My wife and I love to travel, and we have big plans to visit some far-away places with the family when our kids are older. Alaska is definitely on the list, and I’ve got family roots in Ireland and love going there. Ultimately stepping foot on all seven continents is on my bucket list, but I have a feeling I might have to travel to Antarctica solo!” When asked how he would encourage others to join his field, he shares that while he initially felt the industry would mature and face diminished job opportunities as contaminated sites were remediated, he’s since realized that will not be the case. He concludes, “I can now see there is plenty of work to do as demand for reuse of industrial land increases and we continue to better understand the risks associated with emerging contaminants. The work done in environmental remediation has a real, positive impact on human health in our communities. While the mainstream focus recently has been on global-scale issues like climate change, local impact is something to think about for aspiring environmental engineers.”

Land Science is proud to have David Hanley, Principal Engineer and founder of Hanley Environmental, PLLC, as a valued partner in environmental mitigation, and appreciates his diversified experience and leadership in providing successful remediation and mitigation outcomes for Land Science and its clients.
