Phase I Environmental Site Assessment

Environmental Site Assessments protect buyers of commercial property from the liability presented by a recognized environmental concern (REC). Skipping environmental site assessments opens property owners up to legal action, fines, and thousands of dollars of remediation. Nabholz’ environmental experts have the know-how to perform Phase I ESA & Phase II ESA reports in compliance with all regulations, ensuring all proper documentation is in place for a successful real estate deal.  

A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I ESA) is required for any commercial real estate transaction. A Phase I ESA identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities and RECs.  

For a Phase I ESA, Nabholz experts review records, perform a site inspection, and interview owners, occupants, neighbors, and local government officials. Nabholz is familiar with the rules and procedures established by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), which satisfy the “All‐Appropriate‐Inquiry” (AAI) aspect to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).
