At Fehr Graham, we recognize the importance of understanding the history and background of land you want to redevelop. Our trained Phase I Environmental Site Assessment experts will assess your site, looking for previous uses and potential contaminants that could harm the environment or public. A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is a fundamental step in any Illinois brownfield redevelopment project. Let us help ensure your site assessment is conducted effectively and efficiently.
Why is the Phase I ESA important?
If you are an Illinois landowner or looking to purchase property, a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is needed to protect your financial liability, the public, and environment. A Phase I ESA identifies contamination risk and the potential for emerging contaminants.
What is a site inspection in a Phase I ESA?
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment ensures environmental due diligence to address any existing or emerging contaminants within or around your brownfield redevelopment project. Our Phase I ESA experts will not only evaluate the site but will conduct a historical and environmental records review to determine if the site was ever exposed to harmful contaminants.
Why do you need a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment?
Partnering with the right environmental engineering team to conduct your Phase I ESA can help Illinois municipalities reduce project costs and secure additional grant funding to navigate your redevelopment project through municipal, state, and federal regulations. The Environmental Protection Agency awards assessment grants available annually that can help cover costs associated with site assessments and cleanup. Our experienced Phase I ESA consultants can help determine if you are eligible for funding.
