Project snapshot highlights:

  • Newly Developed Indoor Sports Training Facility
  • Constructed Near a Former Landfill
  • 20,000 Square Feet Installed

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.
