An essential step in real estate property transactions is evaluating the property for potential environmental contamination and assessing potential liability for contamination which may be present at the property. An assessment of the environmental conditions at any property should be performed prior to the closing of any real estate transaction. This is done to confirm the conditions at the property or to establish an innocent landowner defense should environmental contamination be discovered after the property was acquired. KES provides comprehensive professional site assessment services to our clients in accordance with the ASTM E-1527-13 Standard. We have prepared reports for a variety of sites, from vacant lots and farmland to industrial complexes. KES has also conducted subsequent Phase II investigations that provide a detailed investigation of the recognized environmental concerns (RECs) identified in the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment.
