A Creative Gas Vapor Barrier Solution Designed for Prologis in Los Angeles

August 15, 2011

Terra-Petra was honored to have been recently contacted by Prologis, the world’s leading industrial real estate owner, operator and developer, to evaluate and recommend a gas vapor barrier system design for one of the company’s newest acquisitions– a large distribution center with a 272,000 sf footprint — in the Los Angeles, CA area.

This world-wide organization, with over $48B of assets under management, has a very strong “Environmental Stewardship” program built into their corporate charter.

The design they wanted and needed was strictly voluntary (not bound by any code or regulations to install such a system).  So we were asked to come up with a creative solution that could address property conditions appropriately and cost-effectively to their expectations.

The Terra-Petra team came up with a design that more than met Prologis’ overall expectations about the mitigation concerns as well as the total system cost.  Once our proposal was accepted, we were asked to complete the total design within a two-week period in order for them to meet all scheduling requirements.

We’re happy to announce that we presented our gas vapor barrier design to Prologis with about 3 days to spare– as we all know, “extra breathing room” is always a great added perk to give a client on projects of all sizes.

Our latest vapor intrusion mitigation design is another great example of how Terra-Petra is a big believer in working diligently with a client to understand all of their needs and quickly turn around a design that will meet all requirements.
