Ten Bears personnel have prepared hundreds of Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) for buyers, sellers, developers, government, and lending institutions. All of Ten Bears full-time staff described in the attached resumes meet the definition of an “Environmental Professional” (EP) per the ASTM standards for Phase I and Phase I Environmental Site Assessments.
Our company philosophy regarding Phase I ESAs is simple – No project will be automatically referred for further evaluation. If recognized environmental concerns are identified during the initial stages of an evaluation, it is our policy to notify our client as soon as practicable in order to provide an opportunity to either stop the assessment (and cut costs) or to refocus our services. This may allow money that would be ordinarily spent on completing a separate Phase I Report to be apportioned to a Phase II sampling effort and producing a document combining both phases. Ten Bears will consult with the client to develop a cost-effective approach to assessing and addressing that particular condition in a way that meets the clients needs.

was seeking to strengthen their presence in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia by
acquiring a smaller bank with 56 branch offices in the mid-Atlantic region. The client
engaged the Ten Bears project team to evaluate the location, condition, and quantity of
hazardous and regulated materials at each of the 56 branch offices in preparation for their
proposed renovations. Each of the 56 bank branches were evaluated within a period of
approximately one month to meet the aggressive schedule required by the client.
