Serious level of workmanship was required during our recent visit to a new housing development in Farrenferris, Cork.
Images show Duraskrim reinforced radon barrier installed to a terrace of 4 No. houses; which all varied in several different levels across each house base.
All perimeter & internal walls were above the hardcore, which required a high level of detail in moulding & sealing around each corner.
Several pipe penetrations were also sealed throughout each house base & a bituthene liquid membrane was used to seal wall-ties at vertical drops.
