Due Diligence in New Jersey

The Partner New Jersey offices are located in Red Bank and Ramsey. Both provide Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Assessments, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions. Our New Jersey staff recognizes the unique challenges of environmental due diligence in New Jersey, including each town’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) process called Open Public Records Act (OPRA) in New Jersey, and how this can impact record requests.

Partner is the national leader in Phase I Environmental Site Assessments by volume. Most reports are performed to meet the standards of ASTM E1527-05. Partner often customizes reports to meet individual client or agency lender’s (Fannie MaeFreddie Mac) requirements.

Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-27(2002). Partner staff in Red Bank and Ramsey understand the long history of heavy industrial development that has led to numerous Superfund/ NPL sites in New Jersey.

Partner is also experienced regarding the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) requiring the NJDEP to phase in implementation of the use of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs)who have the responsibility for oversight of environmental investigation and cleanup.


Since 2010 Partner has completed 789 jobs in New Jersey, 504 of which were Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. Some recent projects and experience that provide insight into our New Jersey consulting practice include:

Partner completed a Property Condition Assessment (PCA) on Newport Tower, a high-rise office tower in New Jersey. The PCA included a lengthy building inspection of the 36-story, 1.1 million square foot high-rise.

Partner completed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment and Phase II Environmental Testing, as well as subspecialist inspections, of four former waste service sites in New Jersey. Partner also completed the subsequent remedial action preparation, remediation and RAO report preparation. Some of the remedial processes Partner implemented were in situ chemical oxidation injections, monitoring and vacuuming of wells, and free product recovery.
