Phase I Environmental Site Assessments

Partner provides both local and nationwide Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. Most reports are performed to meet the standards of ASTM E1527-13 or meet our client's customized reporting standards. Partner often customizes reports to meet individual client or agency lender's (Fannie MaeFreddie Mac) requirements.

Property Condition Assessments

Partner provides lenders and real estate investors with Property Condition Reports. Partner architects, engineers, and commercial building inspectors inspect the subject property in order to gain an understanding of the condition of the building. Our reports meet ASTM E2018-08 guidelines.

Building Engineering

Partner’s Building Engineering services incorporate structural engineering evaluations in the commercial, residential, healthcare, education, historical, and light industrial sectors. This includes the structural assessment and investigative work by Partner of a building’s facades and framing as well as remedial design and restoration.

Phase II Environmental Testing

Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision, property transaction or to meet agency requirements of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). Typically our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-11. Our environmental professionals understand the unique hydrogeology and variable geology found in Florida, such as karst topography.

Asbestos, Lead-Based Paint and other Industrial Hygiene services

As an add-on to a Phase I ESA or Property Condition Report or as a separate service, Partner offers assessments and solutions to address the risks of asbestos, lead paint and mold.  

While conducting a Phase I ESA, Partner is able to complete a visual evaluation of accessible areas for the presence of Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACMs) and Lead-Based Paint (LBP). If desired, or as part of a property due diligence assessment as required by a lender, sampling of suspect ACM and LBP can be conducted to determine if proper abatement should be conducted as part of project renovation and demolition.

Partner offers a variety of Lead-Based Paint services including Inspection, Testing, Risk Assessments, and Clearance Inspections.

Moisture and Mold issues can escalate quickly if not addressed promptly. We offer mold testing, assessments and remediation to help owners address and mitigate this concern. 

ALTA Land Title Surveys and Zoning Services

Partner is a coordinator and preparer of ALTA/NSPS Surveys, Boundary Surveys, Topographic Surveys, and Zoning Reports across the United States for use in commercial transactions. We effectively handle and facilitate the coordination of land surveyors, title, ordering, process, product, and delivery. We manage the entire process of acquiring your survey and can effectively manage single-site or multi-site transactions. Our extensive network allows us the flexibility to provide a registered professional land surveyor for any site location—nationwide—with competitive pricing. We will coordinate all questions and comments from all transaction parties with the site surveyor and furnish reliable timely surveys all from one point of contact.

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 into consideration, as well as local and municipality provisions and other regulations such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
