WE SUPPORT THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
It is important to measure the Radon potential ahead of construction
Shortly after construction, new build properties should be monitored to confirm the effectiveness of the Radon barrier. A study* has indicated that in as much as 60% of new build properties the installed Radon barrier does not result in Radon levels below Action Levels.
Alterations to existing buildings can affect Radon levels.
RPmatters can provide detectors to measure Radon levels and develop cost effective schedules and protocols.
