Medical Center Construction Proceeds Following Elimination of Vapor Threat
This project snapshot features the following:
- TerraShield Protects New Medical Facility
- Threat From PHC Vapors Eliminated
- 22,000 Square Feet Installed
The project is a new medical facility in western Michigan built on a site impacted with petroleum hydrocarbons in soil gas, posing a vapor intrusion risk. Multiple vapor mitigation systems were evaluated, and TerraShield® was selected by the project development team based on its enhanced chemical resistance versus other composite spray applied vapor barriers. The reinforced metalized film base layer, in combination with the nitrile advanced asphalt latex makes the TerraShield vapor barrier the new gold standard for vapor intrusion barrier performance. For quality control, our certified applicator conducted smoke testing underneath the barrier to confirm a vapor-tight system. The Land Science Certified Applicator completed the project successfully, enabling construction to move forward.
