When it comes to working with Land Science, Brad Parish, P.G., Senior Hydrogeologist with Apex Companies LLC, is most impressed with the company’s involvement on product selection based on an array of project needs and budget parameters. He shares an example, “On a recent project, I asked Land Science to develop a repair sequence for a large vapor barrier and passive venting system that was fairly unique. Not only did they provide recommendations for a proper repair sequence, they actually developed the sequence for inclusion in our design for permitting by the local authority, providing significant savings to our client.”
TerraShield Installed as Part of LSSU’s State-of-the-Art Center for Freshwater Research & Education
The Center for Freshwater Research and Education at Lake Superior State University (LSSU) in Michigan was undergoing a $14.5 million expansion to replace its successful aquatic research lab. Tri-Media Environmental & Engineering’s Maura Pliska, the environmental project manager working with LSSU, recommended TerraShield Aluminum Nitrile Vapor Barrier to ensure a safe and healthy environment for LSSU’s learning community. Balancing the concerns of cost, speed and effectiveness, TerraShield was chosen because it offers the highest level of chemical resistance of any vapor barrier on the market today, protecting against any possible level of vapor intrusion.
The TerraShield vapor mitigation system was installed at LSSU’s research center successfully. With TerraShield installed as part of the development, faculty, staff and students are assured of the highest available level of protection from vapor intrusion for years to come and the community benefits from a world class research center serving Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and beyond.
Superior Chemical Resistance Over Any Vapor Barrier On The Market Today
TerraShield is a significant step forward for vapor intrusion barriers. Employing an innovative metalized film technology in combination with a versatile spray-applied nitrile core, TerraShield provides superior chemical resistance over any existing vapor barrier currently on the market. It is the ideal vapor mitigation solution for residential, industrial, and commercial developments with volatile contaminant impacts that represent significant health hazards and economic liabilities.

Vapor Intrusion Webinar – Sign up today!
In this webinar we are pleased to have as a special guest speaker Tom Hatton, CEO of Clean Vapor LLC. His presentation will discuss subjective standards and the long-term liability of vapor intrusion. He will be joined by Jordan Knight, Central Region Manager of Land Science, who will share advanced vapor mitigation barrier technologies that can be incorporated into vapor mitigation system (VMS) designs to minimize the long-term liability that often comes with contaminated site redevelopment. This webinar starts Tues., January 19th, 2021 at 11am pacific/2pm eastern.
About the Presenters:
CEO, Clean Vapor LLC
Tom Hatton, CEO of Clean Vapor LLC, a highly sought-after speaker, consultant, and vapor mitigation system designer, pours over 30-years of knowledge and expertise into every project. You get the benefit of his unparalleled knowledge and insight into how environmental conditions and building dynamics lead to vapor intrusion. As a co-author and contributor to many state and national mitigation standards and guidance documents, Tom leads LSRPs, PEs, and building owners through the increasingly complex regulatory landscape on vapor intrusion projects.
Central Region Manager, Land Science
Jordan Knight is the Central Region Manager for Land Science. She provides technical support to engineering and consulting firms within her 22-state territory in the design and installation of vapor mitigation systems. Her role also includes educating the environmental community on advancements in vapor intrusion barrier technology, implementation, and quality control. Prior to joining Land Science, Jordan attended graduate school at Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
A new indoor sports training facility in Michigan includes two open-field playing areas, encompassing approximately 20,000 square feet. The facility was constructed near a former landfill, and a combination of soil gases act as potential vapor intrusion sources, including methane, petroleum hydrocarbons, and chlorinated solvents. The building’s foundation consists of caissons with grade beams in the areas spanning the waste material and trench footings along the edges. The engineering consultant, SME, compared the soil gas results to the listed screening levels to support the design of the vapor mitigation system. The project development team selected MonoShield® over a 20-mil, taped-seam vapor barrier due to its superior chemical resistance and quality control testing by a Land Science certified applicator, making the application more efficient and providing a high degree of confidence to the project stakeholders.
MonoShield is a chemically resistant and easy-to-apply barrier specifically designed as a preemptive solution for vapor intrusion at brownfield redevelopment sites. It is backed by unparalleled design support, standard industry warranty, and a network of certified applicators who can ensure quality installation. To learn why developers are increasingly turning to MonoShield for a fast and cost-effective preemptive vapor mitigation solution, download the brochure.
5 Reasons to Consider a Preemptive Vapor Barrier to Protect Your Property Investment
Historically, easily-punctured thin-mil plastic sheets or inflexible and difficult-to-seal High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Barriers were the only option for vapor mitigation at large warehouses or sites where regulatory requirements were not a driving risk factor. These solutions offered either chemical resistance or constructability, but not both. Composed of an innovative, metalized film, MonoShield sets the standard for preventing diffusion and permeation of chemical vapors. Its nitrile-based asphalt latex ensures a seal far more effective and easier to apply than tape-based or heat-welded systems. Download the ebook to learn more.
