A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities for a real estate asset. Phase I ESAs are conducted according to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) E1527-21 Standard. A Phase I ESA typically consists of the following elements:
Sampling activities are not conducted under the ASTM 1527-21 Standard; however, some lenders require additional assessment of environmental conditions (radon testing, wetlands, floodplains, threatened and endangered species, etc.). AGM can perform these non-scope services as part of the Phase I ESA Report package.
AGM staff have undergone rigorous training directly from ASTM under the ASTM E1527-21 Standard for the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process. Our staff meet the EPA’s qualification standard as Environmental Professionals under the All Appropriate Inquiries Rule.
