Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)

Environmental Site Assessment is the study of a property to identify potential or existing environmental contamination or liabilities. A Phase I ESA report is usually prepared for real estate holdings, developers and financial institutions.

NYC E-Designation

An E-designation relating to air, noise or hazardous material prevents any new construction to occur, and building permit(s) are not approved until the environmental requirements can be satisfied.

Vapor Intrusion Investigation

Vapor Intrusion refers to the process by which volatile chemicals move from a subsurface source into the indoor air of overlying or adjacent buildings.

How It Works

Our Assessment Process

Request a Meeting

First, we understand your project goals, then explore solutions that achieve those goals in order to determine the best site assessment strategy.

Receive Custom Plan

We provide our clients with a (ESA) report of our observations and conclusions, which is presented in accordance with standard practices.

Let’s Make it Happen

We ensure that our clients fully understand the (ESA) report to get their property in compliance before proceeding with their real estate transaction.

For Property Owners and Managers

American Environmental has also performed an extensive number of Phase I ESA on commercial, mixed-use, industrial and residential properties for a variety of customers to evaluate its environmental condition(s) and identify any Recognized Environmental Concerns (RECs) that could be a liability or become a future liability.
