Environmental Site Assessment
Environmental site assessments include a wide range of services that are designed with specific goals and objectives. For example, Phase I Environmental Site Assessments are generally designed to investigate the potential for an environmental liability (or liabilities) that may be associated with a specific property. These are typically conducted during property acquisitions or refinancing. GEI's Phase I Environmental Site Assessments includes evaluating data and information gathered from a wide range of sources, such as State and Federal records, assessor records, historical aerial photographs and maps, and a site reconnaissance. GEI's appointed Environmental Professionals have a minimum of 15 years of relevant experience conducting these assessments, though the ASTM standard requires a minimum of 5 years.
Phase II Environmental Site Assessments are generally designed to further investigate the potential for an environmental liability (or liabilities) that are identified in Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, or though other means, such as known, or suspected sources of site contamination. GEIs Phase II Environmental Site Assessments typically includes focused soil and groundwater sampling and analyses to identify the presence or absence of Contaminants of Potential Concern, as identified during a Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, or other means.
GEI understands that Environmental Site Assessments are a useful tool in managing risk. As such, GEI’s environmental site assessments are conducted with a clear goal in mind — definitive site characterization. The following photos show examples of GEI's Phase II ESAs.
