This is an exciting time in the development of the vapor intrusion control industry. Significant increases in practitioner skill level and experience and the increased availability of specialized products have resulted in many innovative and customized solutions for addressing the vapor intrusion needs of developers, businesspeople, and attorneys. This is especially true in three specific areas of practice: new buildings, existing buildings, and risk management/value engineering.
New Buildings - It is critical to integrate any new vapor intrusion control system design into exixting or planned building systems. This increases the efficiency of vapor intrusion control systems, while lowering the installation costs and minimizing both the impacts of construction schedules and the downstream operating and maintenance costs.
