ESA Phase 1


The Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is a crucial step for the incumbent purchaser to evaluate a property’s past use and potential presence of contamination. The objective of a Phase I ESA is to identify environmental conditions already present on the property, which includes the presence or likely presence of hazardous substances or petroleum products.  Once we have been mandated to work on your project, our team of experts will complete a 5-step assessment of past and present uses of the property, and other nearby properties in the same area. Our 5 step process typically includes:

1.Site History Compilation

2.Review of Public Records

3.Site Inspection

4.Owner/Occupant Interview

5.Report Preparation

We usually include other properties within the same catchment area in our assessment because liability may be assigned to a property owner who has released hazardous substances that have contaminated another sites, including yours. Contamination that has migrated to the property from another site may affect your property value as well as adversely impact its development potential, and it may require remediation costs if we cannot prove that the contamination originated outside your property. EcoVision’s team of professionals bring knowledge, expertise and a wide range of technical skills to the table to resolve these issues for you, so that you can enjoy peace of mind, while continuing with the acquisition and redevelopment of properties.
