report will they receive, or how long the commercial building inspectors have been in business. To become a good commercial building
inspector requires many years of on site commercial building inspections, learning from each and every commercial building inspection.
Commercial building inspectors know the value of their experience, reputation, qualifications, talent, attention to detail, the time and detail of
the commercial building inspection, the quality of the written commercial building inspection report the extent of consulting and advice that

inspection turns up little wrong with the building, you have bought peace of mind for few hundred dollars! If the commercial building

ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENT RATES
Phase 1 - Environmental Site Assessment
A thorough environmental analysis of the property and all surrounding uses or conditions, which may carry the risk of contamination or
liability and issues arise from past use of chemical, oil tanks, asbestos and other hazards. Assessments have been performed on a range
of property types,  including gas stations, medium sized industrial operations and multi-tenant commercial plazas.
As described by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), in Standard CAN/CSA-Z768-01, a phase 1 environmental site assessment
is a systematic process by which an assessor seeks to determine whether a particular property is subject to actual or potential
contamination. The scope of the phase 1 environmental site assessment will consist of the following four principal components of the CSA
Standard:                         
Review of historical land use, occupancy records, and aerial photographs.
Visual assessment of the site and surrounding properties including identification of any liquid or chemical storage, PCBs, ACM, Lead and
other designated substances, spills or soil and building contamination and identification of surrounding land use in order to identify possible
impacts to the subject site.
Interview with persons having knowledge of past and present site activities.
Evaluation of Information and Reporting
Phase 1 environmental site assessment can be arranged within six to eight business days.   Phase 1 environmental site assessment
reports are ready within 5 business days after completion of phase 1 environmental site assessment.  
Cost from $2,490

Phase II - Environmental Site Assessment
A phase 2 environmental site assessment (ESA) is an investigation to confirm the presence or absence of contamination on a property. It is
accomplished by a sampling and analysis program that may include:
• soil drilling and/or test pitting;
• geophysical analysis;
• surface or groundwater sampling; and
• testing of building materials
Generally, a phase 2 environmental site assessment  is required by a lending institution (bank) when potential contamination has been
identified on a high-risk property such as gas stations, dry cleaners etc, requiring financing.
The potential contamination is often identified through an initial phase 1 environmental site assessment. If contamination is identified, the
phase 2 environmental site assessment findings are used to develop options for dealing with the contamination including removing the
contamination, managing the contamination  in-place and or monitoring soil and groundwater conditions to ensure the contamination doesn’
t worsen. The cost, scope and duration of a phase 2 environmental site assessment are dependent on many factors such as the size and
location of the site, the number and type of suspected, contaminants, the type of material to be sampled such as soil, groundwater, etc., the
methods used for sample collection and the time required to obtain laboratory results. The turnaround time for a typical phase 2
environmental site assessment is about 2 - 4 weeks.  
Cost from $6,950
