Environmental due diligence is the process of investigating and assessing the environmental risks and liabilities associated with a property or business. It is a critical step in the acquisition, financing, or development of a property, as it helps to identify and manage any potential environmental liabilities that may impact the value or future use of the property.
As a new homeowner or property developer, you know how important it is to conduct an official and qualified Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) or Site Contamination Assessment (SCA) on the land you’re working with. Whether you’re looking to buy and sell, settle in for the long term or start a large project, it’s vital that you complete an Environmental Due Diligence assessment.
It may seem like a daunting process, but our team will be with you every step of the way to guarantee you follow best practices. The plan is as follows:
Preliminary Site Investigation (PSI) — The initial stage of our plan will involve a PSI to ensure we know what we’re working with. Once you book the inspection, we’ll come to your site and review its condition to see if there are any glaring issues or faults we can identify. We’ll prepare future steps at this point.
Detailed Site Investigation (DSI) — In the second phase, we’ll conduct a DSI to identify and assess ground, water and soil contaminants. You can rest assured that our NATA-accredited lab has the necessary technology to provide you with a detailed report of all possible dangers to inhabitants and workers.
Remediation Action Plan (RAP) — The RAP is a detailed report of the first two phases, letting you know exactly what needs to occur and how you can ensure complete environmental due diligence. At BBN, our experts will guarantee that you’ll understand every aspect of the report, taking the worry out of your hands.
Validation sampling and report — Once everything is analysed and compiled in a detailed and actionable report, you’ll have a quality assurance plan in place to ensure that you can begin work on your new land.
Classification — We will also help with soil and waste classification to ensure you adhere to the relevant waste classification guidelines.
