Ember Environmental Services, based out of Chicago, provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. At Ember we follow the ASTM E1527-13 Standard which helps satisfy the EPA's All Appropriate Inquiries Rule. Phase I ESAs are a common part of a variety of real estate transactions. In simple terms, the purpose of a Phase I ESA is to get a current and past picture of the property in order to identify any environmental conditions that may be present. These Recognized Environmental Conditions (REC) are important to identify before you aquire a property. For more information on our Phase I ESAs feel free to contact us through our website, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 312.340.5472.
We also do Property Conditions Assessments (PCA) using the ASTM E2018 standards as a guideline. If you need a PCA along with your Phase I ESA let us know and we will send you proposals for both. For more information on PCAs you can visit our sister company's website at Certified Inspections and Consulting.
