Radon Technical Services – Annapolis and Indian Head
- Radon assessment
Since 2016, Bluestone has been awarded two consecutive TOs (Contract Number N40080-16-D-0318, Delivery Order 006; and, Contract Number N40080-18-D-0312, Delivery Order N40080-18-F-5203), valued at over $960,000, through NAVFAC Washington to complete radon assessments at NSA Annapolis and NSFIH.
At NSA Annapolis, Bluestone recently completed a one-year long-term radon assessment in select buildings at the Naval Academy (Upper and Lower Yards) and North Severn Area of NSA Annapolis. Extensive coordination was required between Bluestone, NAVFAC, and the NSA Annapolis facility managers. Radon detectors were deployed in approximately 3,000 rooms in 79 buildings across the facility. Due to the numerous test locations in dormatories at the Naval Academy, the deployment effort was constrained to the month between graduation and induction of the new Plebe class. Bluestone deployed the radon detectors ahead of schedule, in under three weeks.
Bluestone monitored the status of the detectors routinely throughout the year. At the conclusion of the radon assessment, Bluestone collected the detectors for analysis, conducted a quality control review of the test results, and prepared a final report summarizing the radon assessment and identifying follow-on actions. A modification was issued for follow-on short-testing to confirm the detections in a few of the test locations. Bluestone is currently awaiting a second modification to conduct additional follow-on testing at NSA Annapolis.
At NSFIH, Bluestone was issued a very similar scope of work to NSA Annapolis. Bluestone deployed approximately 1,000 passive long-term radon detectors in 28 buildings in late-February 2019. Bluestone will finalize the assessment report by June 2020.
Bluestone dedicated five engineers and scientists to obtain required radon measurement certification (per the Navy Radon Assessment and Mitigation Program Guidebook) prior to the implementation of this project. Bluestone provided a dedicated project manager who worked closely with NAVFAC and the Installations to ensure the successful completion of these projects.
