Partner Adopts EDR's Latest Technology

Partner leverages EDR’s new technology for environmental consultants' tools to drive even more quality and efficiency.

Torrance, CA—Partner Engineering and Science, Inc. (Partner), a national engineering, environmental, and energy consulting firm, has announced its adoption of the latest wave of technology for environmental consultants recently released by EDR. The new technology is designed to increase efficiency and quality control of Phase I Environmental Site Assessments and other environmental due diligence reports.

Joseph Derhake, PE and President of Partner, says, “Since 2007, Partner has built our business supporting stakeholders of real estate. Our business is to manage risk and facilitate deals for our clients, and our commitment to innovative technology and quality control is paramount.”

In January, EDR launched new packages that combine data with new workflow technology. The anchor of the new packages is Lightbox, a web-based application that puts data in one place, making review of information faster and more accurate for environmental professionals. Other enhancements include a new mobile app, high-quality aerial photography, and the industry’s first database that tracks changes to government environmental records, the Recovered Government Archive, or RGA, to name just a few.

Derhake continues, “We are always looking towards the next evolution in our due diligence practices. By leveraging EDR’s content and technology tools, we are able to streamline the Phase I ESA process even further, as well as introduce new quality control elements.”

EDR’s ScoreKeeper, the leading market monitor for the environmental due diligence industry, cites Partner as the top producer of Phase I Environmental Site Assessments for the past five consecutive quarters.
