Environmental Site Investigation
Our due diligence efforts can uncover potential problems before you complete an acquisition, loan, investment, or commercial lease

The terms “buyer beware” and “lender liability” have become commonplace in real estate transactions today. Promulgation of EPA Superfund laws significantly increased and defined the potential financial liability for owners, operators and financial institutions.
 
Let us help you demonstrate satisfactory environmental due diligence and minimize your potential liability associated with owning, managing, operating or financing a real estate purchase. Through a Phase I Environmental Assessment, we’ll evaluate your property’s existing liability and potential for environ­mental contamination.

Our firm has provided these services for select clients since 1990, and we are on the “approved list” of many lending institutions. We use only senior level professionals to conduct environmental assessments, and these individuals are trained in our systematic approach.  The Environmental Assessment Association certifies every environmental assessor in our firm.

Health Care Services Programs
Find closure to environmental challenges through effective environmental risk management programs

The nature of the health care industry makes compliance with health and safety issues a critical component of a facility’s operation and image in the community.  We have developed a comprehensive management system to help you manage environmental risk and potential liability.
The key components of this management system include:

  • Occupational Health and Safety Audits
  • Post-Construction Facility/System Commissioning
  • Infection Control Risk Assessment and Monitoring
  • Gas System Evaluation
  • Indoor Air Quality Management and Assessments
  • Asbestos and Lead Paint Management Programs
  • Bio-hazardous Waste Management

For more than a decade, we have worked with hospitals and other health care facilities in developing site-specific environmental management systems to achieve specifically defined objectives within budgetary restraints of the facility.

Indoor Air Quality Management and Assessment
The World Health Organization estimates that 30% of all commercial buildings exhibit symptoms of “sick building syndrome”

We have the expertise to evaluate your indoor air quality problems, and design and manage remediation programs to mitigate those problems. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is defined by how indoor air satisfies three basic requirements for human occupancy:

  • Thermal acceptability
  • Maintenance of normal concentrations of respiratory gases
  • Prevention, dilution, and removal of contaminants and pollutants to levels below health or odor discomfort thresholds

Many energy conservation measures serve to “tighten” today’s buildings, reducing air circulation. These measure, combined with the extensive use of synthetic building materials and furnishings can have a significant negative impact the quality of indoor air and increase the potential for microbial growth.

We can help you develop practical and cost-effective systems to evaluate the quality of your indoor air. The best way to win at IAQ litigation is to avoid it altogether. Sound indoor air quality management should be an integral part of your organization’s standard operating procedure.
