Phase I Environmental Site Assessments are designed to provide sufficient information to develop an independent professional opinion about the environmental condition and history of the subject property and to identify actual or potential environmental contamination, which may impact your project disposition, value and liability that directly affect claim to an "innocent land owner" exemption following acquisition.
Phase One Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) are an essential step in acquiring commercial or industrial property. This introductory phase of investigating the potential for environmental risk or contamination on a property is vital to any given subject property's value and liability and determines if Phase II investigation and testing is warranted.
