We perform and manage Phase I ESAs and Phase II subsurface investigations for residential, commercial, agricultural, and industrial properties throughout the United States and Canada. Our projects range from assessment of an individual property to multiple Phase I ESAs conducted simultaneously to evaluate risks associated with potential property transactions. Upon client request, we supplement Phase I ESAs with hazardous building materials surveys, critical habitat and endangered species assessments, limited environmental compliance assessments, and property condition assessments.
Based on recognized environmental conditions identified in a Phase I ESA, we perform Phase II subsurface investigations to evaluate soil, groundwater, vapor, and sediment conditions and quality to assess the need for remedial action to mitigate identified environmental liabilities. In addition to assessing risks associated with property acquisitions, we use Phase I and Phase II assessment and investigation results to recommend further due diligence or cleanup actions to ensure that acquired sites comply with current environmental regulations. Using the data collected during the Phase I ESA and Phase II ESAs, we develop best- and worst-case scenarios for mitigating environmental liabilities, including cleanup costs, to help our clients negotiate purchase prices.
