Due Diligence Services
BES provides due diligence services:
ASTM 1527 Phase I Environmental Site Assessments & Transactional Screening
The BES Phase I Environmental Site Assessment satisfies the due diligence requirements of a property transaction using current ASTM standards and client-specific guidelines to identify possible environmental impairments.
The BES Transaction Screen Environmental Site Assessment satisfies a limited environmental due diligence.
Both assessments include:
- Visual site inspection
- Assessment of current and historical land uses and practice at the property
- Review of local, state, and federal regulatory agency records maintained for the property
- Written report of all findings, including recognized environmental conditions, recommendations, and conclusions
Phase II Environmental Site Assessments
If a potential contamination source is identified with a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment or if additional evaluation is needed, BES will work with the client to develop a cost-effective strategy to collect environmental samples including soil, groundwater, and soil gas samples. This type of investigation will provide critical information to determine if a potential discharge of a hazardous substance has occurred on the property. Based on this information, both a seller or potential buyer will be able to better understand their liability and make an informed decision.
