Partner has a strong presence in Denver, Colorado. The Partner Colorado office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental testing, Property Condition Assessments, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions. The Colorado team is led by Gary Reynolds, who has substantial experience assessing the environmental consulting needs of lenders and heads Partner's SBA practice, and Tim Casey who has more than 15 years of experience in the environmental and engineering services industry.
Partner is the national leader in Phase I Environmental Site Assessments by volume. Most reports are performed to meet the standards of ASTM E1527-13. Partner often customizes reports to meet individual client or agency lender's (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac) requirements.
In addition to providing Phase I ESAs, Partner provides Property Condition Reports and Commercial Building Inspections for a wide variety of clients; including, CMBS lenders, Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac lenders, and equity clients. Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set within ASTM E2018-08 guidelines.
Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the Colorado Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA). Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-11.
Colorado has their own Hazardous Waste Act (CHWA) separate from federal laws with independent authority to regulate and enforce cleanup. Partner Denver staff is familiar with CHWA specifications and can navigate Colorado clients through the process if needed.
Partner performs radon testing and consulting services for a variety of commercial and multi-family residential properties. The Partner Denver staff recognizes that many Colorado counties fall within the EPA's Radon Zone 1 and could potentially have high levels of radon, representing a concern to indoor air quality.
While conducting a Phase I ESA, Partner does a visual evaluation of accessible areas for the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). Should it become evident that Asbestos Containing Materials may be present, Partner can perform sampling and testing to evaluate if Asbestos Containing Material is in fact present.
A zoning report is a necessary part of many real property transactions because the current owner is responsible for existing zoning violations. Partner’s Zoning Reports take usage regulations, Denver and municipality provisions into consideration as well as other regulations; such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
