Environmental services are an integral part of the commercial real estate development process. Developers seeking a new location for a project need to identify past uses of a potential property, evaluate nearby high risk properties, and gauge the likelihood for the presence of a Recognized Environmental Condition (REC). When looking to renovate an existing location, it is vital to know the facts about regulated building materials before any remodeling or demolition takes place. Encountering asbestos containing materials during a renovation project can quickly sidetrack any construction schedule and budget, and disturbing these materials can lead to extensive contamination and costly cleanup.
