Partner has a strong presence in Chicago, Illinois. The Partner Illinois office provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental Testing, Property Condition Reports, ADA Surveys, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions. The Chicago staff understands how the city’s industrial past and many building booms represent an uncommon risk in real estate investments. The office is led by Bob Geiger, who has more than 20 years of experience providing environmental and engineering consulting services.
Partner has completed almost 5,000 projects throughout Illinois since 2010, including Phase I Environmental Site Assessments and projects specifically in Chicago. Some recent projects and experience that provide insight into our Chicago Environmental Consulting Practice include:
