phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments in Milwaukee, Wi
Proudly serving Wisconsin Land Developers
If you’re considering a commercial real estate investment in "Brew City", it is vital that you carefully evaluate the risks and benefits associated with your prospective purchase. In order to effectively evaluate the site, you should partner with an experienced Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessor.
When performed correctly, a Phase 1 ESA will identify any potential environmental conditions that could negatively impact the performance of your new investment. In addition, lenders often require a Phase 1 ESA report before they will fund a commercial real estate loan. The insights provided by a Phase 1 ESA report will also ensure that you have the information needed to obtain your desired property at an equitable price.
With so much at stake, it is essential that you partner with the right team of environmental experts. At Lord & Winter, we have over three decades of industry experience and are committed to providing our clients with timely and accurate Phase 1 ESA reports. Our unique combination of comprehensive technical training, attention to detail, and client-centric approach allows us to turn around Phase 1 ESAs in only 10 business days. This ensures you can access the environmental data you need without missing out on the opportunity to close commercial real estate deals.
Lord & Winter proudly serves commercial clients throughout the Third Coast Area.
