What is a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment?

Discovering why your commercial property needs an ESA Report.

An Environmental Site Assessment is an evaluation of a real estate holding, property, or site that determines if certain risks or potential contaminations (within ground water, soil, etc.) a present at the time of testing. Whether the location is commercial, industrial, or otherwise, our top Environmental Engineers completely and thoroughly assess all historical and current usages of the site, perform rigorous site inspections, and conduct interviews with local officials, neighbors, owners, and occupants.

Why do you need a Phase I ESA Report?

There are several reasons potential site owners, real estate investors, building owners, and bank lenders ask for, and often, require an ESA. If a bank or lending counsel is requesting one, it is to guarantee protection of their investment and insure passing conditions before venturing further into a loan process or to help avoid liability. If you’re a property owner, undergoing a Phase I ESA is a relatively inexpensive way to ensure your assets quality or to help streamline a potential purchase offer down the road.

  • Cheaper Long Term Return On Investment

    Ordering a Phase I report could save you money by preventing you from having to pay for things as site remediation or clean-up.

  • Learn About Your Investment

    Be prepared and knowledgeable about your investment. A Phase I ESA will give you historical data into your site.

  • Get the site you want

    ESA Reports can often show site particularities that could lead sellers to drive down the cost or conversely, raise it.

Understand the Importance of Environmental Site Assessments

Phase I Site Assessment is the detailed report you need

Our environmental professionals look for evidence of contamination. For instance, sources such as leaking storage tanks, chemical spills, dumping, and construction materials. As a result, substances that we look for evidence of include petroleum products, lead, and asbestos.

However, physical examination of the property and adjoining properties is only part of the process. Most importantly, our experts pore over historical records, conduct governmental and proprietary database searches, examine aerial photographs and topographical maps, and review any other available sources of information about the property.

The Next Phase in Due Diligence Reporting

In the United States, ESAs of real estate properties are required in a number of situations, including:

  • When property is purchased or sold
  • Buyouts and changes in ownership
  • When a lender considers providing a loan for real estate
  • Changes in permitting
  • When mandated by a regulatory agency

In addition, there are many situations when an ESA is advisable. For example, when a property is being evaluated for purchase, or simply when an owner wishes to know more about the current state of their property.
