The inclusion of this system in the construction process carries two significant implications. One possibility is that the builder is addressing a history of radon gas issues within the development, taking measures to make future mitigation easier. However, the absence of an active fan characterizes it as a passive system, designed to allow natural airflow to disperse radon gas.
