Best of 2018: The Best Environmental Consulting Firm
How does the Commercial RE field benefit from your services/products: Environmental issues routinely arise in all types of commercial real estate transactions. Extensive liabilities can result from leaking underground storage tanks, buried industrial waste, poor quality fill material, improper handling of hazardous materials, historic PCB usage and spills. This has changed the way business is conducted regarding the development, management and transfer of property and is fueling the need for firms that specialize in complex environmental laws and regulations. AESI offers a full range of transaction-related services and guidance to buyers and sellers of private and public property. Importantly, the firm’s staff is specifically trained to perform due diligence and remediation services in this arena. This enables AESI to be more efficient and cost-effective in identifying critical issues that need to be resolved as a part of a real estate transaction with the goal of turning contaminated sites into properties suitable for redevelopment. Many of the projects the firm handles fall under the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program.
