Enclosure Design for Radon Control in British Columbia

June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

This session provides an introduction to radon, associated hazards and design considerations. The focus will be on the roles and responsibilities of the various members of multidisciplinary design teams and considerations for radon control in enclosure design.  The requirements in the British Columbia Building Code, including the recent code update, will be discussed including relevant reference standards.

Date: Thursday, June 6, 2024
Time: 12 – 1:30 p.m.
Location: Online via Zoom
Cost: $75 (Architect AIBC & Architectural Technologist AIBC); $60 (Intern Architect AIBC & Retired Architect AIBC)
Learning Units (LUs): 1.5 Core
Registration: Register by Monday, June 3, 2024

Presenters: Robin Urquhart and Rodrigo Mora P.Eng., PhD

Robin Urquhart is a Senior Project Consultant at RDH Building Science. He wrote the Framework for Radon Management in Yukon (2018) and has worked as the enclosure radon specialist on a variety of large and small projects. Robin is especially focused on the intersection of multidisciplinary design teams with respect to radon control in buildings outside Part 9 of the BC Building Code.

Rodrigo Mora is a Faculty of Building Environmental Systems at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). His work focuses on the monitoring and modeling of built environments and environmental systems for human-environmental health and resilience. So far, Rodrigo’s work has focused exclusively on indoor environments; however, realizing that buildings are designed with little connection to the actual site and surroundings, and vice versa, urban environments are environmentally disconnected from buildings, Rodrigo began to investigate connected building-urban environmental systems that are synergistic, responsive to the needs of people and in harmony with the environment, while being robust to deviations from design, and resilient to the extreme environmental threats of climate change.
