cKenney’s completed a complex
radon remediation project at
a condominium development.
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 team established a pre-task plan and
met with 100 homeowners to address individ-
ual schedules, expectations and concerns.
To contend with inconsistent floor plans,
the installer located space above closet
ceilings to mount ERV units, and a subcon-
tractor installed access doors. Holes were cut
in sheetrock and soffits to install flexible duct-
work and in the building exterior for venting.
All holes were patched, sanded and painted.
Following successful ERV installation in more
than 200 homes, independent testing showed
radon levels had dropped well below Environ-
mental Protection Agency requirements.
