Advanced Radon Technologies, Inc.
Advanced Radon Technologies came into existence as the result of Thomas J. Gerard and Associates, a Mechanical Engineering firm, and Fayteck, a Geological firm, that joined forces on several projects in the late 1980's and early 1990's. This partnership lead to the awarding of the Washington State Passive Stack study, a $250,000 in-depth look at the new code for radon resistant construction. ART was started shortly after, and has been working in the Radon Mitigation and Vapor Intrusion fields since. Unlike most radon mitigation firms, our beginnings stem from Mechanical Engineering and Geology, not general contracting. So, ART brings Science and Engineering to every Radon/Vapor Intrusion (VI) mitigation system we design and install. After some investigation into the standard radon mitigation practices, ART designed and built a sub-slab Diagnostic Testing Machine and was granted a US Patent. (Pat.#5388444). This machine gives ART a huge advantage in both residential and commercial radon & VI mitigation. No guess work, just exact measurements, proper pipe and fans, and a much higher initial success rate then any other radon mitigation firm in the United States.
David M Gerard, President and Owner
Mr. Gerard has been in the radon testing & mitigation field since 1993. He is a graduated from Gonzaga University with Honors and started the mitigation department of ART. He learned the practices of radon mitigation air flow and other important factors from a Mechanical Engineer, plus the radon/radon testing protocols and local geology from two professional Geologists. Mr. Gerard learned a technical and scientific approach to radon/VI mitigation and uses it on a daily basis. Mr. Gerard is certified with both National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) and National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) in both mitigation and measurement and is an instructor for several classes on radon. He has been an instructor trained many others from all over the Pacific Northwest to become certified radon mitigators.
Dave has lived in Spokane all his life, and has been with his wife, Wendy for almost 30 years. They have 2 daughters.
ART is one of the world's leading radon mitigation firms, specializing in new and existing residential, commercial, and Vapor Intrusion mitigation. The engineering experience, our Patented sub-slab Diagnostic Testing Machine and our machine shop allow us to offer products and services not available by any other Radon firm in the United States.
ART has designed installed some of the largest and most complex commercial radon system found anywhere in the world. Many buildings larger then 100,000 SqFt and 4 stories in height and radon levels over 50 pCi/L with the highest being 914 pCi/l! ART uses commercial radon systems and fans with the largest having 48 floor penetrations and one fan moving 4400 CFM@ 4" wc (add link to the case studies US Courthouse page here)
Please contact ART with any of your Radon or Vapor Intrusion needs and/or questions and we will be happy to help in any way possible.
