Capturing radioactive particles in air
If you want help, why don't you first describe what you are trying to do?
Are you designing an office building on the premises of NPP?
Or a nuclear shelter?
Or an ordinary office skyscraper which for some reason needs to be made safer against fallout?

My site is in chernobyl and I am designing a lab surrounding the red forest, trying to capture the state of ruin of the forest. Hence I would aim to capture whatever radioactivity that is trying to escape out of the boundary of the lab and feed it back into the forest.
That would achieve two things : 1. keep the state of ruin and strange plant growth in the red forest, 2. stop future radioactive pollution out of the boundary of the project.
One key point is that the lab that surround the forest would not provide a cover so my key concern is how to stop the radioactivity escape / spread beyond the boundary of the lab.
I might as well list all of my concerns here actually:
1. how to stop the radioactivity escape / spread beyond the boundary of the lab
2. how does radioactivity travel through soil, hence knowing how to design the foundation of the lab to stop the escape of radioactive particles
3. I'm sure the radioactive level would vary at different height of the atmosphere but not yet know how... i.e. if there is any data of radioactive level of chernobyl in section rather than in plan
4. is there a way to maintain the radioactivity in the site in a long term view (once the original sources had finished its decay)

In order "to capture the state of ruin of the forest", you can simply walk into it, collect samples and do whatever tests you want on them.
> stop future radioactive pollution out of the boundary of the project.
There is no definite borders of contaminated areas in Chernobyl. Concentration of radionuclides in soil simply gradually decreases as you leave most contaminated areas.
And anyway, it was found that soil contamination is not very mobile. It moves at best a few tens of meters per year.
Perhaps the most efficient transfer of radionuclides happens with forest fires. They can be prevented by standard forestry techniques.
