Environmental and Engineering Due Diligence in Chicago

Partner staff understand how Chicago’s industrial past and many building booms represent an uncommon risk in real estate investments. The Partner Illinois office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Reports, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions.

Most of our Phase II Environmental reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-27(2002) and consider the unusual and sometimes difficult geology of Chicago.

Partner performs Clean Construction Demolition Debris (CCDD) Testing per State of Illinois requirements to certify that soils from construction or demolition projects are not contaminated and can be accepted by a clean fill site, or landfill. Our CCDD testing services include: historical site review, site visit and sampling; laboratory analysis; and forms submittal with certification by a Professional Engineer (P.E.).

Partner has completed 929 projects throughout Illinois since 2010, including 571 Phase I Environmental Site Assessments and 302 projects specifically in Chicago. Some recent projects and experience that provide insight into our Chicago consulting practice include:

Partner performed Phase I Environmental Site Assessments and Phase II Environmental Testing for a 45 site portfolio of automotive repair locations spanning across Illinois (Aurora, Chicago, Gauges Lake, Glenview, La Grange, Matteson, Merrillville, Naperville, Oak Lawn, Orlando Park, Palatine, Rockdale and Schaumberg), Colorado and Indiana.

Partner performed a $25k Phase I Environmental Site Assessment and Property Condition Report, including sub-specialist inspections for Roofing, Curtain Wall, and MEP (Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing), on the 52 story Wabash building in Chicago. The Wabash building (formerly known as the IBM building) was designed by renowned modern architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.
