Radon is the top cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the country, leading to approximately 21,000 deaths each year. Incorporating radon testing and mitigation into the design and construction of affordable housing are important elements of providing healthy living environments for residents. Fortunately, a home foundation designed and built with radon-resistant features will go a long way to ensuring low radon levels in the building. Enterprise Green Communities and the National Center for Healthy Housing have partnered to offer this educational session on radon resistant construction strategies, with a particular focus on multifamily structures. The session will review the importance of radon mitigation and focus on strategies for radon resistant construction in affordable housing through case study examples.
