ASTM Site Assessments
Environmental Site Assessments for Lending Institutions
FS Engineers, Inc. has conducted over 150 Environmental Site Assessments for commercial properties in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) “Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Transaction Screen Process” (Designation: E 1528-00).   The purpose of this transaction screen process is to assess the potential for identifying any recognized environmental conditions at the property, including among others, lead paint, asbestos containing materials, and petroleum products.  The assessments have been conducted at various types of properties throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.  These properties have included among others, boarding houses, multi-family residential units, commercial units, and multi-use units.

The transaction screen process consists of asking questions contained within the transaction screen questionnaire of owners and occupants of the property, observing site conditions at the property, and to the extent reasonably ascertainable, conducting limited research regarding certain government records and certain standard historical sources.  Reports summarizing the findings are submitted to the lending institution.
