Event overview

Ahead of our Ground Gas conference (9th May 2019, London), speaker Simon Talbot, Managing Director, Ground Gas Solutions will be hosting a FREE webinar on continuous receptor monitoring which will take place on 11th April at 1pm.

Post-construction continuous receptor monitoring is not routinely required but can be a cost-effective solution when there is a continuing concern of ground-gas contamination. This may either occur when there is suspected poor air quality within an existing building or when there is a question mark regarding the gas protection system within a new development.

The webinar will:

  • Discuss different types of receptor monitoring
  • Reference recent guidance
  • Present case studies
  • Discuss limitations to receptor monitoring

Speaker: Simon Talbot, Managing Director, Ground Gas Solutions
