Environmental Assessment

As part of your Due-Diligence procedure in an Acquisition, Refinance or Foreclosure posture, RAL can  provide detailed and concise Phase I, Phase II and Phase III Environmental Site Assessments (ESA’s).

Our Assessments are conducted utilizing formats that meet or exceed ASTM E1527 & ASTM E1528 Standards, and conform to all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines.

As a part of the Phase II and Phase III, we can provide horizontal and vertical characterization of contaminants and hazardous materials in soils and water.

Additionally, for smaller properties (Single Family & 6 units or less) we can provide an Abbreviated/Limited ESA.

Underground Storage Tank Removal and Site Clean-Up

RAL can provide all the necessary personnel and equipment to remove and dispose of old and/or leaking underground fuel storage tanks. We obtain the necessary permits, purge explosive vapors, remove and dispose of product lines and pumps, excavate, remove and dispose of the UST(s), obtain soil samples for analysis, and submit the written report to proper regulatory agencies.

In the event that soil contamination resulting from a leaking tank is discovered, RAL has the capabilities and procedures to successfully clean the site to reduce or remove contaminants to acceptable Environmental levels.

All work involved is accomplished following Federal, State and Local requirements.

Asbestos Surveys and Abatement Oversight

RAL Consulting is accredited through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under the Asbestos Hazardous Emergency Response Act (AHERA).

We can provide Asbestos inspections, develop sampling plans, and conduct sampling ranging from Limited Scope to Comprehensive Scope. Within both scopes of work, the AHERA protocol is utilized as the guideline.

We can assist you in all areas of identifying the exposures in your building(s) with regard to hazardous materials. Our reports are concise, detailed, and will pinpoint these areas of concern within your building(s) envelope.

Asbestos Abatement Oversight & Monitoring:

In the event that Asbestos Containing Materials and/or Asbestos Containing Building Materials are discovered as a result of an Asbestos Inspection, RAL can provide all of the necessary services to encapsulate or remediate the materials.
