cKenney’s completed a complex radon remediation project at a condominium development.

THE CHALLENGE

The McKenney’s team was contracted to lower radon levels by installing Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) in a finished 200-unit condominium complex—half of which were occupied. Existing homeowners wanted reassurance that McKenney’s would respect their homes

and uphold high quality standards. Varied floor plans and different construction methods within the same plan made ERV installation especially complicated.

THE SOLUTION

The team established a pre-task plan and met with 100 homeowners to address individual schedules, expectations and concerns. To contend with inconsistent floor plans, the installer located space above closet ceilings to mount ERV units,

and a subcontractor installed access doors. Holes were cut in sheetrock and soffits to install flexible ductwork and in the building exterior for venting. All holes were patched, sanded and painted.

THE RESULTS

Following successful ERV installation in more than 200 homes, independent testing showed radon levels had dropped well below Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
