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 II 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.
