During commercial real estate transactions in Georgia, it is important to engage environmental professionals who are familiar with the unique mixture of agricultural and forestland areas combined with metropolitan areas and suburban communities found throughout the state. The Partner Atlanta office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Assessments, and Asbestos Surveys with the necessary understanding of local law and geology.
While conducting a Phase I ESA, Partner does a visual evaluation of accessible areas for the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). If it becomes evident that Asbestos Containing Materials may be present, Partner can perform sampling and testing to evaluate if Asbestos Containing Material is in fact present.
Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division. Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-27(2002). Partner Atlanta staff understand the geological variations in Georgia, from the Appalachian Plateau to Coastal Plains, as well as state regulatory programs such as the Georgia UST Trust Fund.
A zoning report is a necessary part of many real property transactions because the current owner is responsible for existing zoning violations. Partner’s Zoning Reports take usage regulations, Atlanta and municipality provisions into consideration as well as other regulations; such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Since 2010 Partner has completed nearly 1,500 jobs in Georgia, 905 of which were Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. Some recent projects and experience that provide insight into our Georgia consulting practice include:
