Best-In-Class Vapor Barrier System Will Protect Modern Senior Residential Development from Hydrocarbon Vapors
Project snapshot highlights:
- Nitra-Seal Provides Safe Environment for Seniors
- Land Science Provides Turn-Key Approach to Streamline Project
- 10,000 Square Feet Installed
This project is a new, 135-unit luxury independent, assisted living, and memory care community in Maryland. A short distance from Washington D.C., it is described as the “most modern senior-living community in the area.” The development is in a brownfield where historical fuel spill(s) have resulted in petroleum hydrocarbons vapors in soil. Due to the potential risk of vapor intrusion into the new residences, the Maryland Department of Environment required implementing a solution to address the threat. The project development team desired a single contract, turn-key approach for design, installation, waterproofing at the elevator pits, and third-party testing of a vapor mitigation system (VMS) to streamline the process. Through our extensive network of consultants, certified applicators, and third-party testing companies, Land Science provided a value-added benefit by quickly assembling and effectively steering the VMS project team, saving time and money for the developer. The vapor mitigation installation was successful, allowing the project to proceed toward its scheduled opening in 2021.
