The report gives results of a literature review to determine to what useful extent buildings have been characterized and a data base developed in relation to radon entry and mitigation. Much in the available literature on large building characteristics is directed toward energy conservation and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system design and operation. Data on floor space to footprint ratio, separation of lower level from upper floors, floor bypasses, and building foundation design/construction are lacking. Radon diagnostic and mitigation strategies are also lacking for large buildings.
