Environmental Engineering

The purpose of a Phase I ESA is generally provided as due diligence for property transfer. The scope of a Phase I Site Assessment is an effort to identify "recognized environmental conditions" associated with the property. The assessments are performed using ASTM E 1527-13 as a guideline in determining an appropriate level of inquiry and generally require the following scope of services:

  • Visual reconnaissance of the properties by a "qualified environmental professional" experienced in performing environmental site assessments who will look for obvious signs of past or present environmental contamination, waste disposal or other activities that would be of environmental concern;
  • A driving reconnaissance of surrounding areas to locate potential off-site environmental concerns;
  • We will commission a research company to provide a records review to determine if the subject property or surrounding areas are listed on any of the available databases;
  • Consultation with local emergency response officials;
  • We will attempt to interview persons familiar with the subject property, including property owner(s), in an effort to identify prior or existing environmental concerns affecting the property;
  • We will provide a questionnaire form to be completed by the User(s) pertaining to their knowledge and other pertinent aspects of the property, as now required by the ASTM standard;
  • Review of the Chain of Title search to be provided by the User in an effort to identify property uses that would be associated with an above average potential for contamination; and
  • Upon completion of the assessment, we will prepare a narrative report presenting our findings with conclusions and opinions along with copies of pertinent historical documents, regulatory database search, maps and photographs.
