Vapor Intrusion

Assessment and engineering solutions for vapor intrusion and encroachment issues.

Vapor intrusion is one of the fastest developing environmental issues in the United States. Federal and state laws and regulations are changing, presenting new and uncertain challenges for building owners and operators. AKT Peerless has been on the forefront of assessment, design and installation of effective solutions to resolve these issues for new and existing buildings. AKT Peerless understands that a practical, cost-effective approach to vapor mitigation can be critical to the success of a redevelopment project.

Vapor Intrusion Assessment

AKT Peerless develops comprehensive sampling strategies to evaluate the impact to soil, groundwater, and soil gas based on historical knowledge of a site. Understanding the nature and extent of the potential vapor intrusion source is critical to the preparation of a technically defensible, economically feasible vapor mitigation strategy. Frequently, AKT Peerless conducts pressure field extension testing and foundation surveys at the same time as the soil, groundwater and soil gas assessment to facilitate the design of a mitigation system (if necessary) saving our clients time and money.

Vapor Mitigation System Design

AKT Peerless has designed vapor mitigation systems for new and existing buildings at a variety of properties. From small residential properties to large industrial properties, AKT Peerless designs appropriate mitigation systems intended to eliminate vapor intrusion threats and reduce risk. Our experts have designed vapor mitigation systems for some of the largest systems in the country, including two nationally-recognized award-winning brownfield redevelopment projects. AKT Peerless has provided system design and installation services for state regulatory authorities and the Environmental Protection Agency. We eliminate waste (time and cost) through the preparation of detailed bid specifications and design drawings.
