The Phase I ESA project will be accomplished by Capital Environmental Enterprises Inc. personnel who are intimately familiar with the appropriate regulations and accepted industry standards. The assessment will be conducted in accordance with ASTM Standard Practice E-1527.
A phase I environmental assessment is designed to identify environmental conditions prior to the sale or re-financing of a property and to help potential property owners choose a site with minimal environmental risks. A phase I ESA is usually the first step in a process of environmental due diligence required by banks before the purchase of land or commercial real estate. While a phase I site assessment typically does not involve the testing of samples, the results of this type of ESA are essential for giving property owners a clear picture of the environmental hazards involved with a property and for determining what additional steps, if any, are necessary.
