Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs)

Being based in the Midwest, we have developed an adeptness at assessing risks and contamination issues at heavy industrial and metal processing facilities, such as machine shops, foundries, plating/metal finishers and coating operations. However, our experience includes investigating innumerable types of complex sites located across the country, including Silicon Valley tech companies, large-scale agricultural processing and research facilities, tanneries and bulk chemical shipping terminals.

Pioneer has performed Phase I Environmental Site Assessments at an incredibly broad range of properties, with over 10,000 sites investigated for due diligence purposes.

Pioneer’s Phase I ESAs meet or exceed the ASTM and federal All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) standards and can also be customized to suit a client’s or particular lender or governmental agency’s specific scope or guidance document. Additionally, an evaluation of vapor encroachment conditions and/or certain “business environmental risks”, such as asbestos and lead-based paint, can be incorporated into the Phase I scope of work or assessed on a stand-alone basis.

The key to any successful environmental project starts with a properly executed Phase I ESA completed and evaluated by qualified personnel. While many firms may treat Phase I ESAs as commodities, here at Pioneer we fully understand their importance and constantly work to maintain and improve upon this fundamental service for our clients.
