Radon Mitigation: Considerations for New Construction Part 3 Buildings

Radon gas exposure is estimated to be the cause of 16 per cent of lung cancer cases in Canada and results in over 3000 deaths per year – yet the regulatory framework for addressing radon ingress into buildings is ambiguous, and follow-up testing after occupancy is at the discretion of building owners.

In this session, Alex will explain what radon is, where it comes from, why it poses a health hazard to building occupants, and what the implications are for the design of new construction buildings. He will explore design options and best practices, unique considerations for certain building typologies, and look at several case studies.
