Real Estate Transactions
Superior has successfully completed thousands of environmental investigation and remediation projects for financial institutions, municipalities, property owners, and real estate developers by providing relevant information and assistance in quantifying potential environmental liabilities associated with property transactions. Our assessments are conducted using a phased approach, which provides a cost-effective and logical progression of investigative effort based upon site-specific conditions. Most major financial institutions within Michigan and several within the Midwest have listed Superior as an approved vendor for property assessments for themselves and their clientele. Superior’s Real Estate Team relies upon demonstrated experience and knowledge of local, state, and federal regulations to deliver solutions that are timely, practical, and make good business sense.
Superior’s real estate capabilities include:
- Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs)
- Baseline Environmental Assessments (BEAs)
- Due Care Compliance
- Asbestos, mold, radon, and lead paint inspections
- Lead in drinking water evaluations
- Storage tank closures
- Wetlands delineation
- Vapor encroachment screening
- Geophysical services
- Federal environmental assessments (National Environmental Protection Agency [NEPA])
Our assessment activities provide characterization and guidance for addressing possible environmental liabilities before a property acquisition is completed. Our risk management plan addresses solutions for known environmental issues associated with a particular property, including the provisions of Baseline Environmental Assessments (BEAs) and Due Care plans (for Michigan).
