Methane and landfill gases are hazards to new construction and existing developments alike. This volume is based on a review of UK practice. It explains where protection is needed and how to provide it for different types of new and existing buildings and gas regimes. The practical guidance covers the selection and construction of the available range of protective measures, from integral floor slabs and membranes to in-ground barriers, venting and active gas abstraction. The book also includes guidance on the long-term management of gas-control systems and reviews capability to evaluate and design protective systems.
