Nitra-Seal Protects Multi-Acre Tampa Logistics Center
This project snapshot features the following:
- 245,000 square foot installation eliminates vapor intrusion threat to future tenants
- Land Science’s technical expertise and support in assisting with the VIMS design were critical factors in the selection process
- High level of vapor intrusion protection ensured for future logistics center workers and office staff
A new, expansive logistics center in Tampa, Florida, was the site of a former brownfield, where past operations left petroleum hydrocarbons and methane contaminants in soil and groundwater. The project required a cost effective solution to mitigate the potential vapor intrusion risk from these contaminants. After reviewing multiple vapor intrusion mitigation system (VIMS) options, the project team ultimately selected the Nitra-Seal® NitrileAdvanced Contaminant Vapor Barrier and TerraVent™ Low Profile Venting System. Nitra-Seal was viewed as the best available, most cost-efficient technology for the large logistics center considering the site conditions and level of contaminant risk. With a foundation approaching a quarter million square feet, and a tight project schedule, Nitra-Seal’s nitrile-modified sprayapplied core results in faster installations, while also providing superior chemical protection, separating it from other VI systems considered. Land Science’s technical expertise and support in assisting with the VIMS design were also critical factors in the selection process.
