There would be NO "higher than normal radiation levels" due to the silo being an ex nuclear missile site. The nuclear warheads were built & maintained at other external facilities, so no possibility for leaked radiation materials. The other danger however could be due to toxic chemical residue from various substances used in building the facility that may be in a dilapidated state or contamination from the propellent used to refuel for the missile.

What an amazing space to be able to transform
I think I would add a bit more colour and comfort to some of the rooms so you can also forget the type of structure it is.
