On Wednesday, November 16, the Grand Valley Chapter of CSC is holding a lunch seminar that looks at radon management in commercial, institutional, and multi-unit residential buildings. Scott Cryer (national radon practice lead at Pinchin Ltd.) will educate attendees about the gas’ health effects, misconceptions, measurement, and mitigation; he will highlight why all buildings must be tested for its presence.
Cryer’s quarter-century of experience includes assessing and managing surface and sub-surface soil and groundwater contamination, asbestos, lead, and radon. Certified with the American National Environmental Health Association National Radon Proficiency Program (NEHA-NRPP) and the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP) as a radon measurement and mitigation provider, he also serves as a director with the Canadian Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (CARST).
The event kicks off at 11:30 a.m. at the Grand Valley Construction Association (GVCA) offices in Cambridge (25 Sheldon Dr.). Registration is $25 for members, $35 for non-members, and $10 for students. Visit http://www.karelo.com/register.php?BID=611&BT=10&Ev=16684.
