Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) are investigations often carried out for Environmental Due Diligence. ESAs evaluate the environmental conditions (and related financial liability) of a property before purchase or refinance. ESAs are also completed as part of a corporate environmental policy, in response to regulatory orders, to establish baseline environmental conditions or as a precursor to site remediation or redevelopment.
- Phase I ESA - the first step in the process of environmental due diligence. Includes a review of historical site information and current site conditions to identify and evaluate potential environmental impacts to a property
- Phase II ESA - conducted if a site is considered potentially contaminated as a result of a Phase I ESA or other sources of information. Phase II ESAs involve an intrusive investigation to identify characterize actual environmental impacts to a site
- ESAs conducted by G2S are compliant with CSA (Canadian Standards Association) and MOE (Ministry of the Environment) regulations
- G2S can prepare and file Record of Site Conditions (RSCs) to facilitate zoning changes, building permits (where required) or client environmental policy
- G2S’s Environmental Site Assessments are cost-effective and sensitive to time constraint
