The report summarizes information on how building systems--especially the heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system--influence radon entry into large buildings and can be used to mitigate radon problems. It addresses the fundamentals of large building HVAC systems and the entry mechanisms for radon in large buildings. It reviews different types of radon measurements and how to plan a deployment of instruments to obtain desired results. A proposed diagnostic protocol is outlined for investigating a generic large building based on investigations made in Florida and other places. It summarizes mitigation results reported in previously cited papers and reviews some of the factors to consider in designing, installing, and evaluating the effectiveness of a mitigation system. It concludes with some recommended building design and operating practices for new-construction large buildings.
