Total Services Offered

LSP Services
LSP services for all MA MCP required activities, including remedial activities such as Limited Removal Actions (LRA), Immediate Response Actions (IRA), Release Abatement Measures (RAM) and Comprehensive Response Actions. LSP services for all Compliance activites such as Phase I-Phase V reports, Numerical Ranking Scoresheets (NRS), and site closure activities such as Activity and Use Limitation (AUL), Down Gradient Property Status (DPS), Risk Assessments, and Response Action Outcome (RAO) Statements.

Peer Report Reviews
Our Peer Report Reviews consist of a technical review of reports prepared by other environmental consultants. IES will issue an opinion whether the recommendations and conclusions presented in the previous investigations are indeed appropriate and representative of current applicable environmental practice and standards.

ASTM Transaction Screen Assessment
Our ASTM Transaction Screen/Limited Assessment is comprised of a Site Visit, Federal and State Databases review, and an interview with the site owner, as required by the “ASTM Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Transaction Screen Process” (E-1528-14).

Subsurface Investigations
Subsurface Investigations are conducted when Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) or Areas of Concerns (AOCs) are identified at a property. The scope of work includes, marking out the property; the advancement of soil borings; and the installation and development of groundwater monitoring wells. Soil and groundwater samples are collected and analyzed by appropriate methods depending on the type of contamination that was identified in the RECs or AOCs. A report is prepared comparing the findings of the soil and groundwater sampling to applicable regulations.

Contamination Remediation
Planning and coordination of all remedial activities using the most up-to-date technologies, conducted in compliance with appropriate State and Federal regulations, IES has years of experience with varied site conditions and remediation technologies, and can recommend cost-effective solutions to soil and groundwater contamination.

DataReport With Risk Rating
IES has developed an “DataReport with Risk Assessment”, which is a combination of a comprehensive database search, a borrower questionnaire, a review of Sanborn Atlases, and a summary report, designed to give you a “thumbnail” sketch of the environmental condition of a site.

ASTM Phase I Site Assessment
The purpose of the Phase I Assessment is to identify, to the extent feasible, pursuant to the processes prescribed by ASTM E1527-13 and the final rule for All Appropriate Inquiries (AAI), Recognized Environmental Conditions in connection with the property. Recognized Environmental Conditions are defined as the presence or likely presence of any hazardous substances or petroleum products on the Site under conditions that indicate an existing release, a past release, or material threat of release of any hazardous substances or petroleum products into structures on the property or into the ground, groundwater, or surface water of the property. The four components utilized in a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment to identify recognized environmental conditions include a Records Review; Site Reconnaissance; Interviews with current and/or past site owners and local government officials; and an evaluation of the information. The reports produced by IES are easily read and understood by banking, legal, real estate and development professionals.

Soil and Groundwater Testing Analysis
Coordination and supervision of all aspects of subsurface investigation, including the enlistment of a qualified drilling or excavating company, determination of optimal borehole or test pit locations, and overseeing of operations so as to properly document the environmental quality of subsurface materials at a given site. Expedient preliminary screening of soil samples is conducted, thus enabling the enactment of an appropriate and cost-effective laboratory testing program. Oversight of underground storage tank removals, and the collection of soil samples, and soil sample screening and analysis. Preparation of UST closure reports and any required State documentation.

Property Conditions Assessment (PCA)

A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is essentially the commercial version of a home inspection. A PCA is used by buyers, lenders, and sellers to evaluate the current condition of a property. The PCA includes evaluation of the major components of a property including building envelope, structural systems, HVAC systems, electrical systems, plumbing systems, and interior finishes. The PCA identifies deficiencies and provides a table of probable costs for Immediate Repairs, Short Term Repairs, and Replacement Reserves.
