CETCO's Gas Vapor Barrier and Venting System for Vapor Mitigation of Massive Redevelopment Project

As part of the redevelopment process that included the mitigation of potential vapor intrusion concerns, the Louis Berger Group specified CETCO's Liquid Boot® gas vapor barrier system as well as the Liquid Boot® GeoVent sub slab depressurization system as a part of their overall remedial design.
