Phase I Assessments / Transaction Screens

<< Back to Our Services

SAS provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) and Transaction Screens for clients involved in real property transfers. These services are typically required by lending institutions when financing commercial, industrial, or agricultural property. The Phase I ESA establishes the Innocent Landowner Defense, whereby prospective buyers have the opportunity to determine whether recognized environmental conditions (RECs) exist at the property. This investigation involves "appropriate inquiry into the previous ownership and uses of the property consistent with good commercial or customary practice."

  • All Phase I Environmental Site Assessments are conducted in accordance with the widely accepted ASTM E1527-05 Standard.
  • The research technicians at SAS have performed hundreds of Phase I assessments and have over 50 years of collective experience.
  • SAS personnel are experienced in conducting multiple parcel site assessments and corridor studies for projects such as Department of Transportation highway projects and Ohio VAP Phase I Property Assessments.
  • We understand the complexity and the stringent time schedules that often must be accommodated to successfully complete these projects.
  • For those who do not wish to perform a full ASTM Phase I ESA, SAS offers the ASTM Transaction Screen (ASTM E1528-06). In addition, SAS can tailor our due diligence assessment to meet the needs of our client(s) and/or lending institution.

Facility Audits/Due Diligence

SAS provides Facility Compliance Audits, Treatment Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF) Audits, and Due Diligence Assessments for clients. The facility audits focus on compliance issues related to the facility’s permits and physical operations, Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans, and waste disposal. SAS performs audits on TSDF facilities on behalf of our clients focusing on permit compliance and environmental liability. The SAS Audit Team comprises members with expertise in specific aspects such as RCRA Part B permits, wastewater treatment, storm water management, training, health and safety, and soil and groundwater contamination.
