Identify and Manage Environmental Risks

Environmental due diligence assessment helps to identify any potential or existing areas of environmental concerns and liabilities that could impact the property. This helps you to take action and mitigate any future environmental impact or liability at your property, and to make sure you are compliant with current regulations and guidelines.

Environmental Due Diligence at RiskCheck

If you’re in the process of purchasing, selling, financing, or redeveloping a property, taking steps to satisfy your environmental due diligence responsibilities will eliminate unnecessary liability and risk.

Environmental Due Diligence Report

RiskCheck’s preventative due diligence consultation assesses and evaluates any sources of environmental contamination on or around the property and provides you with a comprehensive Environmental Due Diligence Report. This crucial analysis will guide you in making prudent decisions that could drastically impact your finances and the health and safety of your crew.

A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is generally a requirement before a property purchase or any other land transfer, including estate settlements, or when redeveloping a property. It’s also necessary when financing or refinancing a property.
During this assessment, we identify any potential or existing environmental concerns and liabilities at the property. This includes a non-intrusive visual inspection and potential hazardous materials identification. Further, we’ll perform regulatory database searches on the current and historical uses of the site and the surrounding properties to identify existing or potential environmental risks.

Should red flags of environmental risks arise during your Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment is necessary to confirm or deny the presence of any associated subsurface contamination. This assessment includes an intrusive examination of the property which may include drilling boreholes or monitoring wells, and collecting soil, groundwater and sediment samples. A comprehensive laboratory analysis of the collected samples will be conducted to provide a clear report of any contamination.

If your property is found to be contaminated, we can help you make informed decisions through the creation of a remedial action plan or a review of your remedial options.

We can also implement site remediations including soil excavation and disposal, chemical injections, groundwater pump-and-treat, and groundwater control.

Following the implementation of your remediation plan, we provide verification sampling to determine the final soil and groundwater conditions.

Our expert teams will determine potential risks to human health and the welfare of the environment from contamination that may be left onsite. Our expert team will help you manage the contamination and ongoing liabilities, and protect both the environment and those who use the property.

Properties with abandoned or unused fuel and chemical storage tanks will need to be removed responsibly and competently. We handle licenced contractor tendering and oversee projects to decommission storage tanks. We ensure proper disposal with manifests and bills of lading.

Following the removal, we provide verification sampling to determine the final subsurface conditions.

We provide services related to focused sampling programs for groundwater, soil and sewer to address any contamination that may be present. We can also assess your indoor air quality for contaminant vapour intrusion. These assessments can be done as a single sample or ongoing monitoring program.

When changing the land use of a property to a more sensitive use, filing of an RSC is required in Ontario. This may also be required for a site plan application for the development of the property. An RSC requires more detailed Phase I and Phase II ESAs.
