Newark, New Jersey

Partner has been experiencing growth in New Jersey, building a strong local presence. Partner provides Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental Testing, Property Condition Assessments, and Asbestos Surveys in support of commercial real estate transactions in New Jersey. Additionally, Partner has LSRP professionals experienced with the NJDEP’s cleanup standards and processes.


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 E1527-21. Partner often customizes reports to meet individual client or agency lender's (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac) requirements. Our New Jersey staff recognizes that every town has its own Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) process called Open Public Records Act (OPRA) in New Jersey, and how this can impact record requests.
Phase II Environmental Testing
Partner performs Phase II Environmental Testing either in support of a financing decision or to meet the requirements of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Most of our reports are performed to meet the standards set by ASTM E1903-11. Partner staff in Red Bank and Ramsey understand the long history of heavy industrial development that has led to numerous Superfund/ NPL sites in New Jersey. Partner is also experienced regarding the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) requiring the NJDEP to phase in the implementation of the use of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs) who have the responsibility for oversight of environmental investigation and cleanup.
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.
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.
Zoning Services
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, city and municipality provisions into consideration as well as other regulations; such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Preliminary Assessments
Partner performs Preliminary Assessments which are site-specific investigations that locate, evaluate, and assess the potential environmental risk associated with past and current uses of properties. Preliminary Assessments are the preferred form of due diligence when buying a commercial or industrial property in New Jersey because they are required pursuant to New Jersey's Brownfield and Contaminated Site Remediation Act (N.J.S.A. 58:10B-1 et seq.). Partner’s expertise in performing Preliminary Assessments also supports the preparation of Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) filings, which require owners of facilities with specific industrial classifications to investigate and remediate prior to the sale of a property or cessation of operations.
Radon Survey
Partner performs radon testing and consulting services for a variety of properties to assess potential radon gas accumulation within the building. Our team of Certified Radon Measurement Technicians conducts radon surveys according to the mandatory New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) regulations passed on May 13, 1991. The Partner New Jersey staff recognizes that 7 of our 21 New Jersey counties fall within the EPA's Radon Zone 1 and could potentially have high levels of radon, representing a concern to indoor air quality. If radon measurement is detected above the EPA action level of 4.0 picoCuries per Liter (pCi/L), Partner has the capabilities to work with mitigation contractors and can also conduct follow-up testing, as required by law.
