Environmental Site Assessment

An Environmental Site Assessment is conducted to identify potential environmental concerns related to on-site and off-site activities.  A phased approach allows the clients to maximize the information obtained while minimizing costs.

Nova begins with routine research and on-site reconnaissance.  Subsequent phases of investigation further define areas of concern and evaluate corrective actions.

Typical Environmental Site Assessment activities include:
  • Review of topographic/geological/hydrogeologic information pertaining to the site and surrounding area
  • Review of historical land use activities at the site
  • Review of regulatory information
  • Site reconnaissance
  • Surrounding property observation

This information is then compiled into a report which summarizes the findings and outlines recommendations with regard to items of environmental interest or concern.

Many clients require scopes of work specifically tailored to meet their needs.  The Nova staff is familiar with the specific requirements of ASTM E1527-13 Phase I Environmental Assessment, requirements of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), HUD and other lender specific requirements.
