Adeptus provides a range of cost effective environmental reports specific to your objectives and requirements. We pride ourselves on offering a client focused approach and easily understandable reports together with practical, actionable advice.
Various forms of environmental site assessment report may be required for submission with a planning application, in the discharge of planning conditions, or as part of the due diligence process in property transactions. Where not requested at the planning stage, it may still be advisable to gain an understanding of potential environmental liabilities by undertaking a Preliminary Risk Assessment before redeveloping a previously used site.
Our environmental search reports are relied on by a range of property advisers, owners, vendors, purchasers and developers for such purposes. From preliminary risk assessment or desktop study reports to intrusive environmental site investigation, our experienced consultants will work with you to develop a pragmatic solution to your site assessment requirements.
For many proposed developments, submission of a Phase 1 Land Contamination Report and Flood Risk Assessment will be sufficient to achieve regulatory approval. Where further detailed assessment is required, we provide a range of services designed to achieve local authority sign-off via the most direct route.
Unexpected discoveries during the development phase such as underground storage tanks, contamination hot-spots or imported fill materials may prompt the need for Phase 2 Site Investigation, or more limited soil contamination testing.
Land & Property Transactions
Environmental due-diligence is equally important in protecting the interest of both those acquiring and disposing of property. The ‘polluter pays’ principle says that where possible, environmental reinstatement costs should be borne by the party who caused or knowingly allowed such pollution to take place. However, where such party cannot be identified, current owners or occupiers may become liable for remediation.
Our Phase 1 Environmental Report service provides valuable peace of mind in the form of a detailed overview and expert judgement given by an experienced contaminated land consultant.
Both owners and occupiers of industrial and commercial sites can be impacted by environmental liabilities. Depending on the nature of previous, current and future site use, both parties may be well advised to commission a land contamination survey to ensure they do not inherit responsibilities in respect of environmental damage caused by others.
Businesses may also wish to assess the likelihood, severity and impact of any potential flooding on their operations and stock, ability to secure insurance, and future expansion plans.
