When the Phase I ESA is completed, we provide our clients with a written report of our observations and conclusions, which is prepared and presented in accordance with standard practices.

Preparation of the Phase I ESA (ASTM E1527-21) is overseen by an Environmental Professional and includes the following:

  • Historical sources
  • Radius map search of the local, state, tribal and federal databases
  • Regulatory interviews of state and local government officials
  • Owner/occupant interviews – past and present – shall be attempted
  • Site reconnaissance performed under the charge of an Environmental Professional – including property structures; periphery of the property; current and past uses of the property; obvious geologic, hydro-geologic and topographic conditions; roads; and potential hazardous substances
  • Non-scope considerations including radon and visual inspections of lead-based paint, asbestos and mold potential. The additional testing is not included in the basic report but can be conducted for an additional fee

We work with our clients to ensure that they fully understand the report before proceeding with their commercial real estate transaction. For more information on our Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, contact us today or request a quote.
