Increasingly, changes in land use and urbanization have created the need for a greater degree of environmental stewardship in the real estate development industry. Existing parcels of land are being used more efficiently, and greater care for the physical condition of properties is a higher priority. As a leader in this critical area, Elford Environmental has been providing detailed and well-researched Phase I, Phase II and Phase III Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) since 1991.

The inherent value of this practice is underscored by the fact that any party connected with contaminated property can be held liable for its cleanup – whether or not they have contributed to the original contamination of that property. ESAs have grown to be a major component in the due diligence required by owners, sellers, buyers and lending institutions involved in the real estate transaction.
