The Partner Maryland office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Assessments, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions. The Partner Baltimore staff is familiar with the widely variable geology across the state of Maryland, from the Atlantic Continental Shelf Province to Appalachian Plateaus. Partner also understands the concerns unique to Maryland, such as historical industrial areas and high radon areas.
Partner often customizes Phase I Environmental Site Assessment reports to meet individual client or agency lender’s (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac) requirements and understands the multiple county and municipal regulatory bodies throughout Maryland.
While conducting a Phase I ESA, Partner does a visual evaluation of accessible areas for the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). Should it become 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 Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE). Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-27(2002).
Some recent projects and experience that provide insight into our Maryland consulting practice include:
• Partner performed Phase I Environmental Site Assessments for a portfolio of 36 gas stations throughout Maryland (Beltsville, Bladensburg, Bowie, Capitol Heights, Clinton, College Park, District Heights, Fort Washington, Greenbelt, Hyattsville, Landover, Lanham, Laurel, Temple Hills, Riverdale, Suitland and Upper Marlboro).
• A Health Technology center located in Baltimore, MD requested Partner conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment and Property Inspections, including subspecialist inspections of MEP (Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing), roofing, elevator and structure, as well as provides a Property Condition Report.
