Radon Surveys North East England
The team is also providing radon surveys for properties in maximum radon potential areas throughout the North East of England.
The radon potential maps have recently been updated and more areas have been identified at high risk of radon exposure. The maps, which can be found here identify 1km grid square of the radon potential. But understanding if your property or new development is actually at risk of Radon exposure and requires mitigation designs can only be clearly identified if the specific area or building is tested. The in-situ radon surveys are used to support Town Planning applications that include an assessment of whether a site is likely to be ‘Suitable for Use’ with respect to risks to future users from radon ingress if no radon mitigation measures are installed or further assessment is undertaken.
At Earth Environmental & Geotechnical we have an extensive range of Radon Survey services for radon Monitoring and Radon Detection including: in-situ measurement of radon gas activity using MARKUS 10 instruments, Radon monitoring in existing commercial and residential properties, plus we also provide Ecotrak® Radon monitoring radon soil gas.
