TerraShield – Key Element to a Sustainable Development Solution
This project snapshot features the following:
- Brownfield Redevelopment in California
- 44-Unit Sustainable, Multi-Family Housing Complex
- 11,000 Square Feet Installed
The project site is a 44-unit multi-family housing complex that was a former brownfield with chlorinated solvents detected in the soil gas. The project’s development was funded through the California Climate Investments’ Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Program through the Strategic Growth Council and the California Department of Housing and Community Development. The Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program makes it easier for Californians to drive less by making sure housing, jobs, and key destinations are accessible by walking, biking, and transit. The project development team selected TerraShield® due to its superior chemical resistance, ease of installation, and competitive cost. It is the first TerraShield application of its kind in Northern California and was accepted by the AHSC as a cost-efficient solution that provides the highest level of protection for future residents of the development. The cutting-edge vapor barrier system will ensure residents are protected from vapor intrusion long into the future.
