When it comes to environmental compliance, National Inspection Services doesn’t just inspect. We offer full-service environmental contracting. We provide a wide range of environmental due diligence, inspection, testing, monitoring, and mitigation services. Our personnel are fully trained in records management research associated with property transfer assessments, and all technicians and laboratory procedures are fully accredited.
It’s essential to minimize the risks and liabilities of commercial property transactions and ownership. We help our clients meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and requirements, especially the “All Appropriate Inquiry” rule. The information uncovered by our site assessments helps buyers, sellers, owners, lenders, and operates assess risk, contain liability, and make informed decisions.
Phase I Environmental Site Assessments
A comprehensive check of federal and state regulatory records; county, fire department, health department, and city records; and site surveys and interviews, a Phase I assessment determines if there is reason to believe a property has been exposed to hazardous waste or other environmental contaminants. When necessary, a Phase I audit and report also directs specific chemical soil analyses, eliminating the need for expensive random soil testing.
Phase II Environmental Site Assessments
When a Phase I assessment uncovers potential hazards, a Phase II audit determines the scope of these problems and recommends remedial action. Phase II testing may include soil borings and analyses, chemical contaminant measurements (such as asbestos, radon, and formaldehyde), and groundwater well monitoring.
Phase III Environmental Site Assessments
Phase III assessments involve additional detailed site evaluation for proper design and implementation of remedial action. Once site characterization reports have been completed and submitted to regulatory agencies for approval, the site may require clean-up and hazardous materials and/or tank removal and disposal.
