Case study highlights:
Former gasoline station transformed into library and town hall complex
Collaboration between environmental teams eliminates potential exposure
Threat of vapor intrusion effectively mitigated with Nitra-Seal to enable use of former gas station site
A growing community near Charlotte, North Carolina was seeking a site to construct a new town hall and public library complex. SUMMIT Engineering, Laboratory & Testing, P.C. (SUMMIT) conducted an environmental assessment at the property in April 2020, confirming that petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC) contamination was present. SUMMIT recommended installing a vapor intrusion mitigation system (VIMS) to the property development team, knowing it would be the most effective approach to address PHC contaminant vapors. In considering their options, Nitra-Seal, a state-of-the-art VIMS offering proven chemical resistance and vapor intrusion protection, was selected by the development team. SUMMIT contracted Clean Vapor, LLC, a company specializing in vapor intrusion mitigation, to design the VIMS per the building plan. The team contracted Buckeye Elm Contracting, a Land Science Certified Applicator, to complete the installation. Following the installation of the Nitra-Seal vapor barrier system, the new library and town hall complex now meets safety and environmental regulatory requirements by eliminating potential vapor intrusion exposure.
