Radon And Other Gas And Waterproofing
The Museum Of Jurassic Marine Life.
MacLennan worked with KENNEDY O’CALLAGHAN ARCHITECTS and AKS Ward to develop a suitable waterproofing system which
incorporated Radon protection via the PAC System.
The Museum Of Jurassic Marine Life is a brand new immersive museum which has been designed to house The Etches Collection.
Working closely with the contractor, architect and engineer the MacLennan Team designed a Cavity Drain system that would be fitted to the Reinforced Concrete Basement, which was constructed within Contiguous Piling.MacLennan had design the cavity drain waterproofing system to accommodate the ground gas (radon gas) and waterproofing
The system used was the MacLennan internal cavity drain and Radon gas waterproofing membrane system, designed by us to be used as a combined water and gas proofing system. This Property was a new build in Cornwall. As a basement was being included in the property the main contractor requested that MacLennan provide a waterproofing design, supply and fit. Cornwall has a high instance of Radon gas which can be lethal, so MacLennan also ensured that all membrane and channelling was sealed as per radon requirements.
