What is radon and why monitor it?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas generated by the decay of minerals present in many rocks and soils.
It is present virtually everywhere, but usually only in very low concentrations. Whilst harmless when able to escape to the atmosphere, radon can pose serious chronic human health risks if allowed to accumulate inside buildings.
As radon is colourless and odourless, you need specialist equipment to identify any radon hazards present in your buildings. And that's where our services can help you.
Our radon monitoring services in action!
Our work can often take us to interesting sites - in this case radon monitoring in a building of historic interest.
Our radon services
Using continuous and periodic monitoring techniques we can:
accurately assess and quantify actual level of risk at your site or building
advise on mitigation or remedial options where we identify elevated radon concentrations
We can advise on options to manage elevated radon concentrations either at construction design stage or retrospectively.
Benefits for your project
Using our services can help:
ensure occupants are protected from serious chronic health hazards due to radon
you implement either preventative or remedial measures to manage elevated radon levels
you install low cost preventative measures by allowing you to design them into your building from the outset
managers of commercial and public buildings meet their legal duty to protect occupants from harm
