Louisville, KY, February 23, 2023 – Today, Louisville-based Protect Environmental announced the brand transition of its recently acquired Chicago-based Elliott and Associates and Radovent and operations. The local operations will assume the Protect Environmental brand in March completing their integration into one of the largest environmental consulting and construction companies in the United States. The transition marks another milestone in Protect Environmental’s growth strategy to expand its scale and solidify its presence in key markets across the country.

“About 1 in 5 homes in Cook County have indoor radon levels above the EPA recommended action level of 4 picocuries. Up to 60% of homes in surrounding counties like Ogle and Stephenson have toxic levels of radon.” Ryan Godar, Co-Director of Operations, Illinois for Protect Environmental and former Operations Director, Radovent Illinois said. “We are excited by the increased opportunity and capacity to provide safe and sustainable solutions under the Protect Environmental brand as we continue to build and maintain healthy indoor spaces together in our communities .”

“With a combined 50-year legacy the expanded operation makes us the largest, most experienced, soil gas contractor in the state of Illinois.” Elliott Wall, Co-Director of Operations, Illinois, and Founder of Elliott and Associates said. “It has been 37 years since we pioneered radon testing and mitigation services in the Chicago area. Partnering with Protect Environmental has unlocked the next chapter in our story, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of Team Green.”

Having served the Chicago region for decades, Elliott and Associates and Radovent will continue to provide the same expert radon and vapor intrusion services under the Protect Environmental brand.
