Developing an existing property or section of land?

A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is often required by investors as a due diligence measure in a real estate purchase or future development, especially if the property is close to a potential contaminated site. We also believe these are especially important for you – the buyer or developer – to protect against any later unforeseen environmental remediation work.

Planning to excavate, drill or cut slab?

Before you excavate, drill or cut you should consider having the ground scanned with ground penetrating radar to identify any unmarked utilities or hazards such as utility lines, pipes or other underground infrastructures. The concept is simple – it ensures worker safety and prevents damage to underground infrastructure. Having us scan the site can is cheaper than having an expensive repair and a serious mistake

What we do …

  • Ground Penetrating Radar

    GPR scanning to identify the presence of conduit, sumps, well bore drill locations, abandoned lines and other subsurface structures.

    Concrete scanning to locate rebar and conduit within concrete, identify areas for safe drilling.

  • Phase I Environmental Site Assessments

    This is a due diligence report that determines if there are potential environmental liabilities associated with a property. This is an essential step for financing of a property, and is often a key requirement for purchasers, landowners and financial institutions.

    An ESA Phase I report incorporates the findings from both a physical inspection of the property and desktop research into historical and current use of the property to identify any potential of environmental contamination within the site or adjacent to the site.

    Integrated GIS services. Imagery services. GIS database services. Data review and project management. Local to regional scale mapping projects.
