We present our assessment findings in clear comprehensive reports. As well as giving our practical commercial opinion, we’ll recommend appropriate management strategies for identified material issues and make suggestions for improvements which could help deliver longer-term benefits.
We also provide Phase I reports adhering to the US standard ASTM E1527 as applicable to the property location if required.
Environmental Due Diligence
We undertake a range of scopes from desk-based reviews of third-party reports through to highly detailed technical due diligence. Our scopes are tailored to our client’s due diligence needs and their often tight timescales.
Technical Due Diligence
Whether you need help with a planning application or have a specific environmental concern, our land quality service provides you the advice and support you require. We carry out a range of services from limited, desk-based reviews to full Phase I assessments. We’ll help you understand ground conditions, identify potential sources of contamination and assess any associated environmental risks.
We can also facilitate the design and implementation of Phase II Intrusive Site Investigations. For all site investigations it is our policy to ensure an appropriate scope of works is in place and clear interpretative reporting is provided. Where environmental concerns are present, we work with regulators and owners or operators to identify and implement the most effective management solutions.
Land Quality Assessment / Brownfield
The ongoing environmental management of your property is one of our core strengths. Together we will:
Address residual environmental liability and compliance issues
Establish good management practices and improve environmental performance, which may assist in attracting potential investors and occupiers
Demonstrate active environmental risk management to investors and debt providers
We’ve created an online collaborative environmental management platform called Ambio to achieve the best results and work together with property managers and asset managers. This platform also provides access to a database containing a full record of environmental information for each asset. It provides real-time status reports for individual assets and overview reporting for a specific fund or group of assets. Think of it as your online data room, with restricted access for third parties as required.
