Phase 1, 2 and 3 Real Estate Site Assessments
In real estate, a phase 1 environmental site assessment is a survey of the property in question to identify potential environmental hazards. At Hygenix Inc. in Fairfield County, CT, we have a professional team of engineers and scientists who provide this service so that you are fully aware of any risks when selling or buying property. This service may also be required for other purposes, such as when a regulatory agency suspects toxicity on your site or when there is a redistribution of ownership. Even if you aren’t selling any time soon, this survey can help you understand the environmental history of your property so that you can take all recommended precautions.
During this assessment phase, we review available historical records that tell us if there have been past issues in the area. Our team tries to interview those who are familiar with the site. We also have engineers and scientists who make a visual inspection of the property. If the survey finds no potential hazards, then there is no reason to proceed to phase 2 or 3.
What Phase 2 and Phase 3 Entail
If potential environmental hazards are discovered in phase 1, then it’s time to move to phase 2. In this survey, samples are taken from selective areas where potential liabilities are suspected. These laboratory tests either confirm or refute the phase 1 findings. If the area is found to be contaminated, the next step is phase 3 in which a strategy is developed to remediate and clean up the site so that it can be used.
