Phase II Subsurface Investigations

Working in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, and beyond, we routinely conduct Phase II Subsurface Investigations as an integral part of prospective property transactions and refinancing.

Our clients include financial institutions, developers, agricultural operations, industrial businesses, government agencies, oil companies, commercial business owners, and private landholders. They can rely on us to conduct thorough evaluations of subsurface conditions of every property to identify environmental liabilities, including potential contaminants from adjacent properties. We consistently demonstrate proficiency in assessing and quantifying environmental risks in support of pending property transactions.
