assesments

Phase I Environmental Site Assessments are typically required as part of property transactions and refinancing. Many lending institutions require a Phase I before they will approve loans. Phase I’s are also required by SBA and other state/federal agencies prior to issuing grants.

A Phase I determines whether or not there is potential for soil and/or groundwater at the subject property. The process involves a review of historical information, interviews, document review and inspection of the site and surrounding area to reveal any past or present usage that may have caused contamination. While no actual samples are taken and analyzed, a detailed site visit can offer visual evidence of contamination.

If hazardous contamination is suspected, the site may be subject to further investigation, which Anderson can provide.
