Code of Practice for Protection of Structures from Ground Gases
Our Code of Practice for Protection of Structures from Ground Gases details the considerations and broadly defined steps that should be adhered to, in order to minimise the risk of failure when providing measures that protect buildings from hazardous ground gas.
This document is aimed at providing guidance for contractors, specifiers and other specialists involved
in the planning and provision of buildings and structures that are at risk of hazardous ground gases ingress,
and is based on current best practice.
