Failure to identify recognized environmental conditions before a property is purchased may result in liability for the new owners and lenders and can cause a reduction in collateral value of the real estate.
Phase I ESAs are critical when evaluating risk prior to purchasing or financing property. To adequately evaluate this risk, CCA performs ESAs following the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard Practice 1527-05.
Phase II ESAs are often needed if unresolved Recognized Environmental Conditions are identified during Phase I ESAs. Our most common Phase II Environmental Site Assessment services include subsurface soil investigation, groundwater surveys, soil gas surveys, and under slab soil collection.
