Environmental Due Diligence

To avoid the high costs and risk associated with environmental contamination, commercial real estate firms, financial institutions, and land purchasers choose EnviroSouth to perform Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) before making financial commitments on commercial and industrial properties.

EnviroSouth has built a loyal clientele that relies on our proven track record of integrity and experience.  Our licensed professionals utilize their regulatory and consulting experience to educate our clients about identified environmental concerns and to clearly explain the best options for addressing the concerns.  Our team has over 50 years of combined experience in dealing with soil and groundwater contamination cases.  Our work experience also includes management positions at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC).  This allows EnviroSouth’s team to provide an educated prediction of the regulatory response and costs associated with any identified environmental problem. 

Environmental concerns identified in the Phase I ESA process can often be quickly resolved in a manner that will allow the real estate transaction to be completed.  We understand that simply pointing out problems with no recommended solution is not very helpful and often will cause a buyer to unnecessarily walk away from a purchase.  While maintaining our position of trust and integrity, EnviroSouth is known for providing viable solutions to prevent real estate transactions from imploding because of environmental concerns.

Solutions, integrity, and trust are what keeps clients coming back to EnviroSouth year after year.
