Pleasantdale School Is Now Safe From Radon

Elliott & Associates had the honor to install 6 radon mitigation systems at Pleasantdale Elementary School in LaGrange, IL over winter break. I have to say thanks to Catherine and Mark for allowing us to install the most efficient systems in order to make the school as safe as possible for the children and staff. Arthur, the building engineer, was a pleasure work with and he did a great job facilitating the installations. I now realize what a building engineer does; they are pulled in every direction, solving problems that always arise. I have a new found appreciation for the operation of a school. As seen from the photos of the systems, they blend-in very well. The up-sized systems are able to withstand the cold weather, eliminating freeze-ups and provide a safe school at all times. I congratulate the teachers that have their own radon safety sirens monitoring their classrooms, making sure the environment that they teach in is safe.

A Builder Who Cares

This January I met Mia, a builder who builds energy efficient and sustainable buildings.  She truly cares about the families that live in her homes – so much so that when she found out that a house she recently built had elevated levels of radon, she was distraught and upset.  She wasn’t upset because it was going to cost more money, it was the fact that the house she worked so hard to build perfectly, had a flaw.  When I met Mia, I could tell that quality and craftsmanship were of utmost importance to her.  I really appreciate a company that works so hard  on every detail,  even on the details that the client may not see or value initially. Over time, the customer will  really value the reduced cost of ownership and live in a safer house with fewer hassles.  I also appreciate the opportunity to work with a person who honestly cares about their product and their customers well-being. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
