Radon Tee UK Returns for 2011 at RICS Event in Winchester

After a short break to recover from the hectic 2010 tour, Radon Tee UK has made its first appearance of 2011 at the South East RICS Building Surveyors’ CPD Day in Winchester to continue spreading the ‘Reduce Radon’ message
Feb. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors' annual briefing for building surveyors in the South East was held in Winchester this week.

The sell-out event, held in the UK’s largest capacity planetarium, was attended by 165 surveyors from a wide range of specialisms in the field of building surveying.

Seminar topics included Listed Buildings, Electrical installations After a Flood or Fire, Cladding Nightmares and Rights to Light.

ProTen Services delivered the final seminar of the day on below-ground waterproofing, which included information regarding the updated British Standard, BS8102:2009.

The seminar explained the dangers of radon gas and why it must be taken into account when designing & installing any below-ground waterproofing system, as radon can be expected to be found in higher concentrations in properties with basements, regardless of geographic location. The attention to detail required to achieve a gas-tight system in relation to a water-tight system is magnified considerably; an issue demonstrated in several case studies which showed how non-specialists had failed to manage the radon levels in properties with basements, and in one case even doubled the concentration present!

Events Manager for RICS South, Alison Plenderleith posed with Radon Tee along with speakers Howard Jenkins of Baqus Construction Consultancy and Simon Pitcher of Craddy Pitcher Davidson.

US non-profit organisation, CanSAR (Cancer Survivors Against Radon) is dedicated to preventing radon-induced lung cancer and saving lives through education and awareness, and is sponsoring the Radon Tee World Trek 2011. The campaign aims to bring social awareness to communities through the power of photos, videos and personal stories.

ProTen Services are taking the Tee on a national tour and will be adding photos to the social media campaign at www.facebook.com/radontee.
