quick service restaurants need vapor mitigation solutionsAs a leader in providing cost-effective, industry leading technologies to engineering firms and real estate developers across a broad range of categories, Land Science continues to forge a history of successful outcomes in sustainable land development for the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) industry.

Geo-Seal has been used on the installation of numerous prominent national fast-food chain restaurants and premium restaurants across the US for several years. These national chains, many of which enjoy a stellar reputation based on providing fresh, organic, and/or locally sourced foods, rely on Land Science to provide the latest technology and results-based solutions for their site redevelopment plans.

In most cases, our QSR clients are interested in the redevelopment of high traffic locations where, typically, gas stations, dry-cleaners, manufacturing, or even brownfield sites exist. During the redevelopment of these locations there is an understanding of the historic use of the site, prompting our clients to take a proactive approach in mitigating vapor intrusion. Part of that approach can include the remediation of the site and the installation of a vapor intrusion barrier to prevent the potential for residual vapor contaminants from migrating into the new structure.

The need for a vapor intrusion barrier on these sites can have several different drivers, from regulatory requirements, to legal counsel, to requirements from lenders. Throughout the past several years, our experience within the QSR and premium restaurant industries has shown that the installation of the Geo-Seal vapor intrusion barrier has met or even surpassed the requirements of the site, and provided a safe environment for future QSR tenants of the property.

About Geo-Seal Vapor Intrusion Barrier

Geo-Seal is the ideal blend of chemically resistant HDPE sheet and spray applied membrane technologies designed to eliminate vapor intrusion on Brownfields or any type of environmentally-impaired site. Geo-Seal is a chemically resistant material placed between the foundation of the building and the soil pad to eliminate vapor intrusion pathways and stop contaminant vapor from permeating through the slab.

By deploying Geo-Seal, developers can ensure a healthy indoor environment while reducing the cost of the site remediation and expediting site construction.
