CODA's professionals facilitate commercial property transactions by providing value-added consulting while thoroughly quantifying environmental risk.  CODA employees perform due diligence studies to assess for potential contamination and provide solutions for the rehabilitation of impacted properties to applicable environmental standards.  CODA’s familiarity and experience with environmental regulations streamlines the complex technical and regulatory process for clients who purchase, sell, finance or insure real estate.

A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is generally the first step in the process of environmental due diligence.  CODA's staff is well equipped to provide accurate reporting to enable our clients to make informed decisions.  An ESA generally consists of the evaluation of a property to identify environmental conditions through site observations, historical records research, and limited sampling as directed by the client’s work scope.  A Phase I ESA includes the following services:

  • Assessment of the subject property and surrounding areas
  • Interviews with owners, occupants and neighboring tenants
  • Historical review of municipal records, aerial photographs, maps
  • Local environmental oversight agency interviews
  • Analysis of local hydrogeological conditions
  • Government environmental database review
  • Conclusions regarding potential environmental liabilities using risk based analysis

If the Phase I ESA identifies the presence of potential environmental concerns or recognized environmental conditions (RECs), CODA will provide continued support by developing an action plan for additional data collection or subsurface investigation (Phase II).  In the development of the Phase II scope of work, the proper methodologies for data collection are selected to ensure acceptance by regulatory agencies.  Examples of Phase II services may include the following:

  • Subsurface Investigations
  • Tank removal and closure
  • Soil sampling and excavation
  • Groundwater sampling
  • Corrective Action Plans
  • Site characterization
  • Risk based site assessments
  • Remediation Design Development
