Radon abatement for a shop
I’m building a 1500 sq ft shop with a couple big garage doors. Above the shop is labeled future office for permitting. I plan to use it for storage or kids slumber parties and maybe an office etc. Ideally I’d like to turn it into a 600 sq ft apartment in the future.
I’m not sure whether I need radon abatement in the slab on main floor since it’s basically like having a room over a garage. My only requirements on the plans say vapor barrier under the slab. I know code is for radon abatement in crawlspace of new homes, but not sure if required in a garage (maybe cause drafty and concrete slab?). Obviously it’s much easier to throw in some pipe for it now before slab goes down but if it’s not needed, less work and materials is a plus.
