Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments

waste managementOur experienced team of environmental professionals can handle any size Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessment for commercial and industrial properties.  In addition, Titan’s team of both cultural and natural resource specialists has overseen the successful completion of comprehensive NEPA Screenings and associated Environmental Assessments.  We are based in Kansas City, Missouri and serve the entire Midwest region.  From Little Rock to Wichita to Omaha to Minneapolis and Milwaukee, we can assist you with the initial site assessment during the real estate transaction and any applicable pre inspections and testing before, during and after development of the site.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessments Include:

  • Site and Site Vicinity Reconnaissance
  • Digital Photo Log of Site
  • Regulatory Agency File Review
  • Aerial Photograph Review
  • Historical Title and Land Use Review
  • File and Database Searches
  • Personal Interviews about Site History
  • Data Analysis and Report Preparation

 

Titan’s Phase I Environmental site assessments are performed in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard Practice E 1527-05, Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments and the new USEPA Standard found under All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI). This federal regulation 40 CFR Part 312, promulgated in November of 2005 has given environmental due diligence reporting the regulatory requirement that enables buyers, sellers and lenders of real estate the ability to hold environmental professionals to a higher standard.

Titan professionals conduct each assessment with strict confidentiality and are able to handle time-sensitive projects arising from property transactions.  We have developed internal assessment protocols, which not only address standard procedures, but also evaluate many other environmental constraints and business risk considerations that may impact both land and existing building use.

Phase II Environmental Site Assessments

environmental assessmentPhase II Environmental Site Assessments are recommended if an area of concern or recognized environmental condition (REC) is identified.  Further investigation and sampling may be necessary to determine if an environmental liability exists.  With proper evaluation, the area of concern can be characterized, liabilities assessed, and conclusions drawn.  Accurate and precise analytical data and recommendations for remedial actions can then be determined as necessary.  Remediation cost estimates can be prepared in order for buyers, sellers and lenders to evaluate environmental conditions through a realistic and regulatory perspective.
