Because the liability and cleanup costs associated with a contaminated site can be extensive, due diligence and risk management are important steps in the property development process. WithersRavenel’s engineers, scientists and technicians provide the environmental information necessary to buy or sell with confidence. Our efficient delivery and thorough documentation support sound decision-making.
We complete the technical aspects of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) in stages, with each step providing clarity on the historical uses of a property. Based on the findings and conclusions of the Phase I ESA, clients may choose to pursue a Phase II ESA to obtain more specific information. Phase II ESAs can take many forms, but usually
consist of surface or subsurface sampling activities. We tailor our scope based on the Phase I ESA and the client’s needs to
identify and mitigate potential risks.
