Meeting Notice – Lunch Seminar
Selecting the Correct Underslab Membrane
with guest speaker
Russell Snow, CSP, CTR, BSSO, LEED AP
The first line of defense for protection of a building and its occupants starts below the concrete floor slab. Recently, not only has the concern been water vapour, but also other soil contaminants, Radon and Methane, two naturally occurring contaminants, have been identified as being major issues for occupant health and safety. The continued construction in densely populated areas have dictated that brownfield sites are developed, bringing into play other types of contaminants in the form of hydrocarbons. This presentation will address the origin of these various contaminants and their effects, along with differentiating between an underslab moisture barrier and an underslab gas barrier. In addition, specific materials and their installation details will be discussed providing complete underslab protection.
