Commercial real estate transactions take environmental issues into consideration…so, do your homework.

January 30, 2017

“I was afraid a consultant might give into the temptation to recommend extreme measures for personal financial gain, but SCS Engineers is not like that. They gave me and my buyers just what we needed.” ─ Patti Filkins | Mt. Horeb, WI


 

Today’s commercial real estate transactions both large and small must take environmental issues into consideration. Complex laws and rules can impose significant environmental liabilities on purchasers, sellers, and lenders, whether or not they caused an environmental problem, and whether or not they still own the property.

SCS’s nationwide presence and expertise make us the consultant of choice for companies requiring environmental due diligence on portfolios of properties with multiple locations throughout the country that require a quick turnaround. We have the capacity to expedite multiple, concurrent investigations, giving the parties adequate time to make informed decisions regarding potential liabilities.

We also serve individuals, like Patti Filkins (link to testimonial). SCS Engineers has conducted thousands of environmental assessments in connection with business transactions throughout North America and around the world. We offer a range of due diligence services, from Desktop Reviews to Phase I Environmental Site Assessments to Environmental Regulatory Compliance Reviews, for all types of assets. SCS has particular expertise in solid waste facilities and specialized industrial and manufacturing operations.

We have considerable experience supporting environmental due diligence for corporate mergers and acquisitions. SCS is particularly valuable evaluating environmental and operational risks to supporting private equity recapitalization used to fund solid waste infrastructure expansion.

Our staff includes engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, risk assessment specialists, real estate experts, and other environmental professionals. Environmental regulation is complex. No matter how big or small the property, approaches to addressing hazardous substance contamination must satisfy local, state, and Federal requirements.

Lenders, insurance companies, buyers, and sellers trust our professionals to know and perform what is necessary to make a property safe and always within environmental compliance guidelines and the law.
