Seattle, Washington


Partner has a strong presence in Seattle, Washington. The Partner Washington 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 Washington office is led by Ryan Golden.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessments

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 and is familiar with the specifications of the Washington Department of Ecology.

Phase II Environmental Testing

Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the Washington Department of Ecology. Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-11 while taking into account the unique geology of Washington, from shallow groundwater to glacial till.

Property Condition Assessment Reports

In addition to providing Phase I ESAs, Partner provides Property Condition Assessments 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.

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.

ALTA Land Title Surveys and Zoning Services

Partner is a coordinator and preparer of ALTA/NSPS Surveys, Boundary Surveys, Topographic Survey, 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).
