Environmental Due Diligence in Seattle

When engaging an environmental professional on a property in Washington, be sure they have experience in the state and are familiar with the local geology as well as regulatory agencies. Partner has the experience of over 1,100 projects in Washington since 2010.The Partner Washington office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Assessments, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions.

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 and is familiar with the specifications of the Washington Department of Ecology.

Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the Washington Environmental Protection Agency (WEPA). Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-27(2002) while taking into account the unique geology of Washington, from shallow groundwater to glacial till.

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, Seattle and municipality provisions into consideration as well as other regulations, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Some recent projects and experience that provide insight into our Washington consulting practice include:

Partner conducted ongoing Construction Progress Monitoring (CPM) during radon mitigation system installation at a multifamily property in Vancouver, Washington. The property included 39 two-story buildings. The construction progress inspections took place over several months.

Partner conducted Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Document and Cost Reviews, and Operation and Maintenance Plans for the FDIC across a 42 site portfolio located throughout Washington (Bothell, Edmonds, Everett, Lynnwood, Mukilteo, Olympia, Snohomish and Tumwater).
