Our ESAs continually evolve to meet current industry and ASTM standards and are conducted in conformance with the applicable ASTM (1527-13 or 2247-16) standards and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s All Appropriate Inquires Final Rule at Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 312. Merjent works with our clients to discuss the goals, purpose, and timeline for each ESA.
Prior to beginning an ESA, Merjent reviews publicly available data to understand the general history of a property and to highlight red flags to our clients. With this information in mind, we can tailor the ESA to include additional scope items (file reviews, additional agency coordination, asbestos survey, etc.) or likewise modify our approach to meeting time constraints or client objectives.
We keep our clients informed as the project proceeds and provide a compliant report that is in line with industry standards.
