New guidance: Retrofitting ground gas protection measures in existing or refurbished buildings (C795)

CIRIA is delighted to announce the hotly anticipated Retrofitting hazardous gas protection measures in existing or refurbished buildings (C795) guidance is now available to purchase.

The new guidance places a focus on retrofitting ground gas protection measures in existing buildings where these measures were absent, inadequate or faulty, as well as buildings subject to extension or refurbishment.

Steve Wilson, co-author of CIRIA guide, Technical Director, EPG and CIRIA trainer commented: "The scope of BS8485 is clear that it does not apply to retrofitting gas protection to existing buildings. Each case of retrofitting is a unique situation and requires site specific assessment and design. There has been little guidance up until now that specifically covers all gases and all potential methods of remediation. This report is a welcome addition to the raft of useful and practical guidance on ground gas that has been produced by CIRIA over the past 27 years."
