Environmental due diligence is a critical requirement for lenders and investors. Risk assessment of environmental issues takes an experienced environmental staff to research prior use concerns and adjoining site concerns, and verify through extensive research whether the issues can be resolved by additional research and due diligence (which BEST can provide).
BEST has developed a reputation of getting the job done. BEST believes that typical Phase II investigations, which include groundwater sampling and soil sampling, should only be used as an investigative tool when no other information is available. BEST utilizes extensive research, identifying responsible parties, determining plume delineations of adjoining sites, and working with the state and local governments to properly identify and mitigate the financial risks associated with an environmental issue as a way to generate viable alternatives to conducting a Phase II investigation. The level of analysis is embedded within the initial Phase I Environmental Site Assessment.
