At EIG, we provide our expert assessment of the site in two parts, Phase I and Phase II, to ensure that every detail is accounted for.
Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) ASTM E1903-11
Should the Phase I report warrant any additional investigation, Environmental Inspections Group is available to quote and provide Phase II Environmental Site Assessment services. A more extensive report than Phase I, the Phase II assessment requires property sampling and laboratory analysis.
A Phase II ESA is generally a subsurface investigation that can include:
- Soil Sampling
- Groundwater monitoring, sampling, and analysis
- Soil vapor/Sub slab soil gas testing
- Characterization of hazardous chemicals
Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (EPA) ASTM 1527-13
Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA’s) are conducted to identify recognized environmental conditions and potential environmental hazards associated with the subject property. Phase I ESA’s are designed to meet or exceed the requirements set forth in ASTM Standard Practice E 1527-13 for Phase I Environmental Site Assessments.
In general, the Phase I ESA will include a visual assessment of the site, a review of current and historical uses of the subject property, an on-site reconnaissance of the area, interviews with all knowledgeable parties, and a review of select public records concerning the subject property and adjacent properties that might be beneficial to understanding the building’s susceptibility to any harmful presences.
