Site Assessment - Due Diligence (ASTM)

Phase I - Due Diligance

 

Buyers  and lenders of commercial property  usually require a  hazardous materials assessment prior to closure.  Van’s conducts a  50-year survey of all existing databases.  A full scale visual  investigation is made of the property.  A report is written  incorporating the findings of the property investigation which meets all  state and federal (ASTM) requirements.  If you are purchasing  commercial property, Van’s Environmental Services can perform your Due  Diligence.


  • Visual site  inspection and photos
  • Investigation of  all surrounding properties
  • Search in all  state and federal databases
  • Personal  Interviews
  • Aerial  investigation
  • Written report  using American Standards Testing Model (ASTM) annually-approved format to  provide the information that
     the lenders and borrowers require

Phase II - Site Characteristics

 

The conclusions of Phase I instigate the Phase II investigations.  If,  in a Phase I, you find there are unknown problems, dumping spills, or  prior use questions, then a Phase II study is conducted to perform a  more in-depth investigation into the property.  It usually results in  soil testing and site drilling with results incorporated into a written  report.


  • In-depth  investigation to evaluate problems or questions uncovered in Phase I
  • May include soil  testing and site drilling

Phase III - Site Remediation

 

The conclusions of Phase I instigate the Phase II investigations.  If,  in a Phase I, you find there are unknown problems, dumping spills, or  prior use questions, then a Phase II study is conducted to perform a  more in-depth investigation into the property.  It usually results in  soil testing and site drilling with results incorporated into a written  report.
