Phase I Environmental Site Assessments

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, or call us at 312.340.5472.

Property Condition Assessments

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.
