When seeking environmental due diligence in support of commercial real estate transactions in the Carolinas, finding local professionals who understand the mixture of agricultural and forestland areas, as well as metropolitan and historical communities with complex site histories, is important. Partner has a strong presence in Charlotte, North Carolina through the entity Partner Engineering North Carolina, PLLC. The Partner North Carolina office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Assessments, and Asbestos Surveys.
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 Mae, Freddie Mac) requirements.
Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR). Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-27 (2002). Partner understands the varying geology of the Carolinas, including the Coastal Plains, Piedmont, and Blue Ridge Mountain physiological provinces.
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, Charlotte and municipality provisions into consideration as well as other regulations, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Since 2010 Partner has completed over 1,000 jobs in North Carolina, nearly 700 of which were Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. Some recent projects and experience that provide insight into our North Carolina consulting practice include:
• Partner completed a Property Condition Report for the NASCAR Hall of Fame located in Charlotte, NC.
• Partner conducted Property Condition Reports for a 44 site portfolio of health care facilities for Ventas Healthcare Properties, Inc. across the country, including several locations in North Carolina (Durham, Elizabeth, Henderson, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Wilmington and Zebulon).
