Abstract The report gives results of an evaluation of the feasibility of implementing radon resistant construction techniques--especially active soil depressurization (ASD)--in new large buildings in Florida. Indoor radon concentrations and radon entry were monitored in a finished building with the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system on and the ASD system off, and with the ASD systems activated in a temporary mode. Results from the study have demonstrated that, with sufficient attention to building design and construction, significant radon entry into a large building constructed on a site of high radon potential can be prevented.
