Site Investigation and Assessment
Environmental risk associated with real estate transactions is a concern to all parties involved. Current and historical environmental practices and conditions at a property must be identified so that a realistic picture of the total environmental liability is known prior to the transaction. We provide services associated with Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments (ESAs), calculation of liabilities and remedial costs, real estate portfolio analysis, and project management and oversight. Phase II ESA results are conveyed to clients in a format and on a time schedule set by the client and other project stakeholders. Reports, when produced, present a thorough and concise evaluation of potential site environmental liabilities and circumstances.
There are times when planning for remedial action is just as (if not more) important as actually executing the remedy itself. Environmental Standards has a broad range of professionals with multi-disciplinary experience that allows the firm to tailor remedial action plans, Quality Assurance Project Plans, and other project control or planning documents to site-specific circumstances. Our remediation plans and control documents carefully take into account logistics issues, project budgets, scale, and simple practicalities associated with remediating a site and returning it quickly to productive use.
Environmental Standards professionals not only design remedies – they have the knowledge and expertise to execute the associated work. In addition, we are often asked to act as the client’s eyes and ears during remedial action implementation. From excavation and disposal to complex in-situ chemical remediation, Environmental Standards help our clients, better monitor remediation system performance. Our remedial action is conducted in as economical a manner as possible, while at the same time provides clients value through the application of a broad assortment of remedial technologies.
