Limited EHS Compliance and Permit Review 

Adequate Protection

Limited Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Compliance Reviews help clients evaluate the potential regulatory obligations they might inherit upon acquiring a business. Our environmental professionals evaluate the current operations of potential targets for compliance with legislative requirements and provide our clients with a gap analysis and recommended actions to close these gaps after the transaction closes.

BBJ Limited EHS

Our review of permits not only includes an evaluation of whether any permits are missing but also whether the permits the target does have are transferrable to new owners. We work with our clients and their advisors to ensure our clients have adequate protection in the purchase and sale agreement to manage downside risks related to identified non-compliance instances, and also to develop recommended actions to correct these instances.

Opinion of Cost

Attesting to Developed Opinions

The most critical business choices often involve uncertainty in the true cost of unknown or future conditions. Sometimes these decisions involve environmental impairment, resource scarcity, or other components critical to the success of a project.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessment

5 Must-Dos When Completing Your Management Walkthrough

 

In any transaction that involves real estate, an All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) compliant Phase I ESA is recommended to provide the buyer, seller, or financing entities a determination if potential environmental liabilities, such as recognized environmental conditions (RECs) and business environmental risks (BERs), exist at a target property.

Phase II Environmental Site Assessment

Environmental Due Diligence Services

Phase II ESA procedures are designed to investigate the potential impact of RECs and involves on-site collection of samples for testing, and a comparison with local, state and federal standards. BBJ Group manages all aspects of the Phase II investigation, including:

  • Soil borings and analysis
  • Groundwater sampling analysis
  • Plume characterization
  • Vapor intrusion studies
  • Phase II ESA data evaluation and reporting

Vapor Intrusion

Indoor Air Quality 

Vapor intrusion occurs when volatile organic compounds in soil and groundwater enter buildings as vapors and create health and safety risks for the occupants. Vapor intrusion can occur at any property, including active and shuttered factories, gas stations, strip-mall dry cleaners, and others. Vapors can also encroach on neighboring sites, such as residential and commercial properties, resulting in unsafe conditions.

BBJ Vapor Intrusion and Mitigation Project

Vapor Intrusion Study and Mitigation Installation

During acquisition due diligence of a manufacturing facility in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, BBJ Group identified free phase at an adjacent site. BBJ Group performed a soil DNAPLS gas survey and indoor air investigation, identifying potentially harmful levels of TCE vapors affecting the building. BBJ Group designed and installed a sub-slab depressurization system, reducing TCE concentrations to EPA-approved levels.
